The drug scene at WVU seems to be almost nonexistent to the public eye. It can’t be said that students aren’t using drugs, but if they are, it is not made public knowledge. The substance most abused on campus is alcohol, which is easy to access. Students take advantage of it, sometimes taking it too far. There is alcohol at almost every party and of course in the bars. Tobacco is seen in abundance, too, whether it is because of peer pressure or personal choice.
Campus police say that the most common drug is marijuana, allegedly the cheapest and easiest to use. The students using marijuana seem to be doing it in the privacy of their own home because it is not seen very often around campus. The same can be said for harder drugs, which are not seen at all in public. There is always a chance for peer pressure, but there is enough of a non-using student body that students can feel comfortable saying no. The majority of students do not seem to be abusing drugs, so students should not feel embarrassed for saying no to peer pressure. Overall, the drug scene is not very prevalent at WVU, even with some minor alcohol abuse.
