Butt rebuttal

All GW students smoke, either directly by puffing on a Newport or indirectly by being forced to walk through a cloud of second-hand smoke.

Undercover Metropolitan Police officers arrested five GW students in front of Tokay Liquors in Columbia Plaza – an apartment complex partially owned by the University – for underage possession of alcohol Friday.
