MU Debates Smoking Policy
"The hospital just went on non-smoking so it's a good time to look at the policy, as well, it's about the time where we looked at in 98, before, we looked at in 88. So it's nearing that time where we want to look at it again," Taylor McKinney of the smoking policy task force said.
One student said it was an interesting move considering the town's policy toward smoking.
"It's quite ambitious to try to implement a smoke free policy on campus; especially if the community or town that does not in itself have its own smoke free policy," said MU student Justin Butts.
The forum had two smokers facing about two dozen non-smokers. MU is planning to have additional forums on the smoke free issue in the near future.
