How to stop due dates from being set in the past?

JIRA v6.1.5 with JIRA Agile v6.4.4

When opening a new ticket, it's possible to set the due date to a date in the past. What does my JIRA team need to change in order to block this action? 

Essentially I am trying to prevent ticket creators from saying "I'm making this today, but it was due last week."

We have noticed this carries over from cloned tickets as well.

Check out the free plugin JIRA Suite Utilities:

They have date validation options you can put on your "Create" transition which can prevent a due date from being set in the past.

Thanks @Sana Safai. Can't figure out how this works though. Do you know where instructions are?
