CMU is putting into action a tobacco free policy on campus beginning this summer. Not only does it infringe on people’s right to harm their body as they choose, but it is also an idiotic attempt to control the masses to put to rest the complaints of judgmental non-smokers who feel their right to breath fresh air is being taken away.
But these non-smokers’ argument becomes invalid if they would bother to do a little research, which I have just because if I’m going to criticize something I like to be educated.
First of all yes, walking through a cloud of smoke because you’re down wind from a smoker walking in front of you is gross. No one likes it, even as a former smoker I don’t like it, but once I walk through it and another breeze whisks it away I forget about it. It has zero affect on me long term. Oh I know what you’re thinking, “Yes it does, it is detrimental to your health!” And I’m here to tell you it is not, because I was exposed to this smoke for about 5 seconds and then it was gone.
There are studies done on the effects of second-hand smoke outside and it has been determined it only becomes problematic if you are around a smoker for long periods of time (hours), and are standing within 18 inches of that person for said period of time! The smoke you may be inhaling is toxic to your body and has the same risks as if you sat indoors with a smoker for hours. But the minute the cigarette is extinguished the smoke and pollution it produced disperses quickly. Also taking a couple steps away from a person who is smoking helps a lot too. Being six feet away from a smoker significantly lowers your exposure level, which coincides with CMU’s policy of smoking 25 ft away from any building (which is also rarely enforced but most abide by from what I have seen).
So CMU is banning all tobacco for the good of the health of all who are on campus. Except my problem is, is that really their place? If they are wanting to improve everyone’s health they should only serve food and drinks that are only beneficial to one’s health. So sorry that means, no more sugary coffee drinks from Starbucks, or cheesy bagels in the morning. Say good by to your mountain high nachos and pizza in the markets and dining halls. Why not instate a mandatory exercise regimen or require a fitness class every semester?
Because one’s health is a priority of the individual. It cannot and should not be dictated by an establishment. Although I don’t believe CMU is capable of enforcing this policy anyway. So it may not actually be a problem for smokers wanting to light up before class, if not for any other reason than it being a violation of a person’s right to do what they want to their body and health.
