Drugs have a very small presence at Harvard. Marijuana is certainly the most prevalent, while harder drugs such as cocaine are often rumored to be the drug of choice for a small minority. However, these tend to be rumors and should not be trusted completely. The overwhelming majority of students avoids all drug use and enjoys the ability to engage in a drug-free social life.
Students also note that for those interested in drug use, there are a number of outlets, especially within the city of Boston. All in all, Harvard receives high marks for its ability to keep drug use to a minimum and facilitate an academic and social life that is not inhibited by drugs.
