There is a sizable substance-using community on Scripps as well as on the other colleges, but abstinence is respected, and most social scenes and social groups have a mixture of extreme, occasional, and non users. Most students do not feel peer pressure to conform or fit in through drugs. Most users on campus are not considered "hardcore," and there are hardly ever any incidents of accidents or health endangerment. The drug scene is open but also kept low amongst students. Along the same lines, while drugs are obviously existent on campus, they do not pose a threat, and everyone basically just minds their own business. Students who wish to engage in drugs find relatively easy access, and students who are not interested in drug use, or are against it, do not generally feel anxiety or discomfort because there is mutual respect amongst students in regards to personal lifestyle. Groups on campus are not exclusive and acceptance is widespread. Moreover, support groups and professional services are readily available to students.
The drinking style on campus is mainly the weekend binge, and marijuana is not hard to find in certain circles. Mushrooms are fairly prevalent on campus as well if you know the right places to look. Other hallucinogens are more scarce, but they're available.
