Smoking is not illegal. The university has gone way overboard, setting restrictions that are not needed to protect non-smokers from second-hand smoke. I hope this suit is successful, and causes the university to back off and come up with something more reasonable.

I have absolutely no idea how the university plans to enforce this. WVU's campus is far too expansive for this to ever truly work.

Just curious, what will happen to those who violate this new ban? I am not a smoker and don't like it when people around me do it but I am still interested in how this is going to pan out.

I agree with the aforementioned comment. Smoking is disgusting. Anyone at this day in age HAS to be completely uneducated to engage in such a toxic behavior. On campus, it is often the food service employees, other blue collars, and the foreigners who smoke the most.

Secondhand smoke has been proven to be just as dangerous as actually smoking so why should I have to breathe in someone else's nasty habit? This is the same logic that helped to pass the smoking ban in restaurants in this state.

I wish this would be done in Hospitals......so tired of seeing a gaggle of 'healthcare professionals' ripping butts and littering them in the streets.

I don't see it being something easily held up at a college though...half the kids there are already doing other illegal stuff.

Let me clarify. Of course, I don't think non-smokers should have to suffer second-hand smoke. The new restrictions are so broad, they will restrict smoking behavior that has no demonstrable impact on non-smokers.

The new world order has commenced chimney. New restrictions mean smoking IS ILLEGAL in those areas. Time to quit.

HYPOCRITES!!! How inconsiderate of you to drink alcohol that social "DRUG" that kills thousands in car crashes. Yes you hypocrites--how dare you!! How dare you endanger others by your beer drinking and vomiting on the sidewalks, by your drinking binges that cause violence on campuses worldwide. Oh, yes, I forgot, they tried prohibition 100 years ago but the alcohol lobby was too strong, the way it is today, too strong. HYPOCRISY RULES!! While we are at it, let's ban sugared drinks. Those guys and gals who are above a size 9, let's ban them from ordering food with carbs, only green vegetables and lettuce for all. I have major problems paying for health care and treatment for alcoholics and heavy people!! If you ban smoking then ban alcohol including beer!! both are drugs and both are currently legal, stop the hypocrisy!!

Sounds like someone needs a cigarette.
More like a moron. Taking out student loans so you will be paying for those smokes for the next 30 years begging the government for forbearance because you cannot afford them because no one will hire a smoker.

I have to ask....

Exactly how did your parents get away without being charged with incest?? Especially after you were born with your pointy little head and half a brain that was instantly addicted to nicotine upon leaving the birth canal behind??

2) My parents, God Bless their souls, never comitted incest or any acts of infidelity.

3) I was born with a normal head, a normal brain, and I was not born addicted to nicotine or any other drugs.

Now crawl along and work on how you're gonna vote for Obozo again in 2016.

P.S. Say hi to yours parents for, oops, I'm so sorry, I forgot that you never found out who they were after they threw you down the trash chute in that Motown section 8 hi-rise.

I get it. They looked in the diaper and kept the one that moved. His initials are POS. I guess then smoking would actually not make him smell any worse and it might even keep away the flies. No wonder he is so in favor of smoking. It even explains his scatological obsession.
