Drug Safety

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I feel like as adults this is all a given, I've met so many people that go to parties and don't drink or smoke and have a great time and nobody judges them. There's no need to try and be strict about this since usually I don't see much things go wrong at all.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The easiest drug to obtain here is alcohol. Sac State students drink more than they do anything else. However, the administration and security work hard to curb it, and the campus is actually below the national average for college drinking. This makes Sac State look good in press releases, but a lot of people still drink alcohol in pretty healthy quantities. Then there's marijuana. If you're a Sac State student who doesn't smoke pot, chances are you know someone who does. If you think otherwise, you're one of a small few, or someone's been lying to you. There are quite a few cigarette smokers, too, but it's becoming harder and harder for them to fulfill their habit on campus. Every few semesters, a new regulation comes out restricting where people can smoke at school. Technically, you can't smoke inside buildings, on busy walkways, within 20 feet of buildings or doorways, or in mobile equipment driving through campus—so, basically, you can't smoke anywhere.

Hardcore drugs are less popular with students, but they exist, as well. A lot of people talk about meth, and a few about cocaine. Dealers operate away from campus, for the most part, but users and dealers both come to school. And, of course, there is caffeine, which is very easy to come by on campus because of the unlimited supply of Java Cities. Why people think students need so much coffee is a mystery to all.
