Outdoor smoking ban

The university of minnnesota is trying to pass a smoking ban on campus. Years ago minnesota passed a smoking ban to ban smoking in all bars and resturants. Initially many minnesotains were oppoesed but as more info was released the ban got more popular. Now the ban is supported by over 77% of minnesotians. The university of minnesota is now using this as evidence that once the ban is in place people are more infavor of it. Since the act, called the Freedom to Breathe Act was passed smoking rates have lowered to the lowest ever. There are already 160 university campuses that have the ban in place. If the university of minnesota decides to pass the ban then it would be the first big 10 school to put the ban in place.
