Letter to the editor: Response to cigarette policies

I was reading over your article on IU’s smoking policy in the Monday, Oct. 6 edition of the Indiana Daily Student. While I agree with you that IU needs to be realistic that a campus-wide smoking ban is not going to be effective, one part of the piece failed on the research end. No smoking eight feet in front of a building entrance is not designated by IU. It is a state law within Indiana and as such is required to put up signage stating that it is illegal to smoke within eight feet of a building.

So whether IU wanted to make a policy more restrictive like they have tried, they would still have to post the signs. It’s not as the article states bureaucratic oversight, it is ?simply following the law.
