    Smoking ban at ISU

    News Service: Iowa State University

    Where will all the smokers go? Middle of Lincoln way on a median?

    Hopefully.

    The public sidewalks along Lincolnway are city owned and should be fair game. I could be wrong about that, though.

    I would guess that you could probably smoke in the middle of Lake Laverne.

    No, because then you'd be endangering the Trumpeter Swans, which are listed as an endangered species.

    $50 fine for getting caught smoking on campus would suck. Time to invest in smoke smokeless tobacco companies.

    But what about the swans!


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Re: Smoking ban at ISU

    What about parking lots? Like will people be allowed to smoke while they are tailgaiting?

    This line makes me think not...

    "The smoking ban applies to the entire university, including any work and study areas, outdoor areas and athletics facilities such as Jack Trice Stadium and Hilton Coliseum."

    But it's hard to tell without actually seeing the law. That 25 foot rule would only extend to the area immediately surrounding the stadium. Interesting question.

    No way could they enforce that.

    I am sure they would be out there trying to collect as much money as they could though.

    Re: Smoking ban at ISU

    What was the name of the room in the MU that all the foreign students congregated in and smoked like crazy?



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
