Few colleges are totally immune from a drug presence on campus, and Gettysburg is no exception. While alcohol permeates the school, present in dorms, fraternities, and off-campus housing, less socially acceptable drugs, such as marijuana and cocaine, are also accessible for those who want to find them. Prescription drug abuse of medicines has escalated sharply in recent years, as students wanting help cramming during midterms and finals are turning to ADD and ADHD treatments, such as Adderall, to provide extra focusing power.

Basically if you want drugs, you will be able get them, and if you don't, you probably won't ever have to worry about it.
