Drug Safety: The make sure drugs are enforced on campus. But they do treat everyone like criminals even for very very minor violations.

Drug Safety: Alcohol is literally every where and so is weed if you know who to ask. Coke has a prescence on campus too but thats a bit more difficult to get. Adderall and ritalin are very present around finals as is xanax right after. You could really get anything you wanted if you knew who to ask but alcohol and weed are what you would see at parties typically.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Many students will experiment with drugs at some point or another, if they haven’t already. That being said, Lehigh’s drug scene is really no more prevalent than at any other school. Pot is almost always available as long as you know the right people, although the police are far more attuned to the drug scene than many students realize. There has been a significant number of drug-related arrests over the past few years.

On top of the availability of pot, there is also a fairly startling amount of prescription drug abuse. It is not uncommon for students to pop pill after pill of Adderall during midterms and finals, and plenty of students use speed on a daily basis for mere homework assignments. There is also a fair amount of “drug-cocktail” use, as some students will drop a Xanax, Lithium, or Vicodin—or even all three for that matter—into their drinks in order to enhance their night. But, these people are the exception, not the rule. Cocaine has also seen a rise in popularity, which once again isn’t surprising, given the money that many students come from. Hallucinogens, like mushrooms and acid, are also popular among the drug crowd, but as with all drugs at Lehigh, no one should ever feel forced or pressured to partake. Drugs are around, but you don’t have to be around them.
