I'm not a smoker nor am I a lawyer, but seems like you'd have a liability issue with kids going off campus to use tobacco if one gets hit by a car or something. I can understand designating smoking areas on campus, but banning all tobacco to me is just another attempt to limit individuals' personal choice. How will this be enforced, especially on game days?

Re: You still have the choice to smoke just not on campus.***


Sep 23, 2015, 11:27 AM

"seems like you'd have a liability issue with kids going off campus to use tobacco if one gets hit by a car or something" WHAT?
Why would the "kids" get hit by a car? Is it required that they stand in the road when they smoke? Do these "kids" have some mental disability to know not to stand in the road or at least move when a car is coming? Can these "kids" at least stand in the median and not in the traffic lanes while they smoke?
Depending on the answers to these questions, I would agree that Clemson University definitely will have a liability issue requiring kids to stand in the road while smoking.

Some pretty hot topics in US politics to apply that to.

Would you apply that across the board?

Lot of religious folks in the South would probably not be in agreement with you on one topic I can think of.

So, can we only apply that argument to smoking or to other activities?

So, I'd agree that wanting government the government to regulate those with whom you disagree but not regulate you is hypocritical. And you're right that saying "protect my right to dip in public because it's not hurting anybody, but ban [INSERT SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE CAUSE HERE] because i think it's bad!" is a good example of this.

But how is your side of that, presumably banning dipping while supporting whatever hypothetical cause we may be talking about, any different? Perhaps we could just all agree to let other people do what they want?

I'm not gonna stop dipping at football tailgates because of this, but I can't imagine that's their goal. The real effect of this will be cutting down on the number of students smoking outside the library and Johnstone. With a commensurate rise in students dipping inside the library and johnstone ... oh and a new and thriving black market in cigarettes on campus. When the Cigarette Wars of 2017 start and the body count rises into the thousands, don't say I didn't warn you.

Just throwing this in the mix. 3rd hand smoke is potentially more dangerous to kids than 2nd hand smoke. It's what sticks to your clothes and hair when you walk by a group of smokers on the sidewalk outside of a restaurant. Then you go home and hug your babies and they breathe in all of those toxins.

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-is-third-hand-smoke/

Not taking a side in this argument. I prefer a smoke-free environment but I'm not in charge of the air. And as far as those sissified vapor sticks ... in my opinion, it sends a powerful message to kids that smoking is cool ... again. It's not.

How can you ban smokeless tobacco? It's not against the law


Sep 23, 2015, 1:42 PM

Or health codes. I'm all for making clemson better, but someone explains how somebody dipping affects me? I don't personally use any tobacco, but this kind of crap is how you end up with your rights slowly being taken away. Sure, it's easy to say its bad for you, but what happens when they want to ban skydiving, then when car technology permits driver free operation, they ban driving, what about banning food that causes heart disease? Bye bye smokin pig. What about when they ban alcohol at tailgates? That's more dangerous than someone dipping near me. How about just banning football, Mike Williams broke his neck. Dipping never broke anyone's neck.

This is an inappropriate step for the university and goes against literally the very reason for founding this country. Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

I understand banning smoking indoors (even smokeless because of all of the cups and such left around). I understand banning all tobacco in high schools and especially middle schools due to the precedence it sets for younger generations. But why at a school where there most of the student body is legal age to use tobacco. Are they also going to ban all alcoholic beverages since that is also a negative to our health?

I feel for those people who are so addicted to tobacco that they cannot refrain from using for a few hours 6 or 7 times a year at football games while on campus. But it is private property and property owners have rights also, hopefully users will think of it as a few hours that could help them kick a habit that is offense to most people and damaging to their health.
