The drug scene on Purdue’s campus is much like the wind blowing through the trees—you can’t see it, but you know it’s there. The drug lifestyle is pretty much hidden away underground. Students agree that if you wanted to find such substances, you would have no problem doing so, but you won’t have pushers coming up to you on the Memorial Mall.
That isn’t to say that drugs don’t exist, but the most visible drugs at Purdue are the same that will be found on any college campus: alcohol, cigarettes, and caffeine, with small doses of marijuana scattered here and there. A student could easily sail through their time at Purdue without ever encountering the drug scene—unless they really wanted to find it.
