Tobacco Free Campus for Colorado State University
In Colorado, tobacco use is most common amongst 18-24 year olds, many of which do so on their college campus. Recently, there has been a national movement for healthier college campuses to reduce the increasing number of young adult tobacco users. According to the American Nonsmokers' Rights Foundation, there are 792 campuses nation wide that have
banned all types of tobacco. Colorado is
lagging behind much of the country having only three colleges enforcing a tobacco free policy. Banning tobacco at Colorado State University will
help to improve the overall health of the community including students, faculty, and staff, as well as
contribute to CSU's renowned green and sustainable reputation. Ultimately, Rams help Rams and we should care
about the health and well-being of each other because in the end, we are all affected
in some way by tobacco use on campus. By signing this petition, you are advocating for a healthier community, healthier environment, and healthier you! Please visit www.facebook.com/TobaccoFreeCSU or http://tobaccofreecsu.weebly.com to learn more!
