Drug Safety: There is a lot of drug and alcohol use.

Drug Safety: I honestly have no idea why this website is asking me to "rate and review" the "drug scene" at my school on a scale of worst to best. This is ridiculous. What would you even do with this information?

Drug Safety: Obviously depends on the type of people you're hanging around as far as how hard of a drug you see getting used. Weed is extremely common place in Ann Arbor, any where on campus or affiliated with on campus you should be much more careful about drug use. The campus regulations are much more strict than the city police especially in the case of marijuana.

Drug Safety: The Michigan Amnesty laws for underage drinkers is great

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I mean yes people drink, we are at such a big university that it is very prevalent. Same goes for drugs like weed, especially being in Ann Arbor during Hash Bash. But really no one that I know of has ever been forced into doing something. The people here- while they may be making questionable decisions- really don't use peer pressure a whole lot. Policy enforcement is basically on the basis of if you are under the influence and being obnoxious you will be caught. if you are minding your own business while under the influence however cops generally won't bother you.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Ann Arbor is relatively lenient when it comes to drugs and drug penalties. Marijuana has been decriminalized in the past, and today, being caught only warrants a small fine. Every spring, students and Ann Arbor residents come together on the University lawns to celebrate their annual Hash Bash—a festival of sorts, protesting marijuana laws, among other things. Although drug laws aren't stringent, this does not mean that all students partake in the drug scene. Students find that although drugs are available, if you want them, you have to seek them out. Alcohol, on the other hand, is prevalent in many social settings. Regardless, there are plenty of people who abstain from drugs and alcohol. Michigan is by no means defined by its drug scene, and ultimately, using drugs is a choice.
