Smokefree DC is a citizen-based group whose goal is to promote smokefree environments in Washington, DC.

Outside or inside, Towson is smokefree

Three cheers to Towson University, which has just adopted a strong smokefree policy that covers all areas of the campus, whether indoors or not.

According to the policy, which took effect this month, no smoking is permitted anywhere on campus — including parking garages, open spaces, athletic areas, sidewalks, parking lots and buildings. There are no designated smoking areas.

Towson rightly recognizes that secondhand smoke causes disease in nonsmokers and leads to higher health costs for smokers. Towson has more than 21,000 students and is located just north of Baltimore, Md.
