Drug Safety: No need for drug safety if they aren't doing a bad drug. But you can't do it in public at least not on campus

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drug scene at my school is kind of bad. The reason being is because sometimes students walk pass you and smell just like they have the full plant I their pocket with them. Also, it is bad because students go and buy liquor like water and they are only like 18-19 . The peer pressure trap a lot of students into the hands of others. The need to have so done notice you make some student start getting high with people just to have someone say they know them.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Drugs are not a profound problem at JSU. Students are not pressured into this lifestyle because the majority of students come for the academic experience. The population understands how drugs and alcohol can affect the mind and body; keeping a distance from that atmosphere allows the University to stand above the rest. Jackson State is a drug-free school that does not tolerate drugs and alcohol. 

There are numerous liquors stores surrounding the campus that brings a temptation amongst the students. You are not allowed to have any liquor in the dormitories, nor any open containers in public. Many attempt to sneak in fine wines, but more than half are punished for their lack of cooperation.
