Montana State Campuses to Go Smoke Free This Fall

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Montana State University campuses in Bozeman and Billings plan to kick the smoking habit this fall.

The Bozeman campus goes smoke free on Aug. 1, followed two weeks later by the Billings campus on Aug. 15.

Currently, both campuses allow smoking 30 feet away from buildings. There are no restrictions on other tobacco products.

Other schools have already banned tobacco products. University of Montana campuses in Missoula, Butte, Dillon and Helena have bans in place, as does Fort Peck Community College in Poplar.

The Billings Gazette reports that 61 percent of MSU students voted for a tobacco-free campus in March 2011.

A month later, 72 percent of employees voted for the ban on campus.
