Smokers move to the edge

Smokers move to the edge - News - Montana Kaimin - University of Montana:

Clemmensen said he is more concerned about the cigarette butts in his yard than students standing around smoking.
"When it fills up with butts, we take care of it," he said. "I have a feeling the littering is going to be more of an issue."
Vice President Bob Duringer, who will chair the Tobacco Task Force this year, said he had not heard any complaints from neighborhood residents on Monday. He also said that each complaint will be handled "on a case-by-case basis."
Taylor said he didn't anticipate any big problems with smokers, but acknowledged that the smoking ban is "a policy, not a law, so it's hard for us to enforce it."

Sounds like this is working great.No unintended consequences there.
I love how these places start a policy with no clear way to enforce it or implement it.
Or how they're going to handle complaints.
I doubt this feels like much of an improvement to the people who live near the campus.
