Time to put out the smokes, kids. The U of M is close to working out a campus-wide smoking ban, and most folks on campus are actually in favor of the measure, according to the STrib. More than half of both students and academic staff support the ban, and members of the University Senate are on board as well.

Specifics are still foggy at this point, but the U hopes to imitate models that have been successful at places such as Mankato State.
