Drug Safety

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I'm not into drugs/partying/etc, so mostly I'm never bothered by them. However, Hash Bash in the beginning of April is pretty noteworthy and impossible to avoid. Luckily it's a one day event.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: visibility there's a frat next to the student union. Actually there's greek/party houses near/next to all dorms except northwood and bursley and baits. So obviously it's visible. Ann Arbor has a good law like if you call 911 for a pass out person you and that person are exempt from any charges. I think peer pressure isn't really a big thing unless your in greek life like most people are independents by nature at umich and do what they want and when they want. Like if you know what weed smells like you'll notice the diag will be dank sometimes. Like you'll catch a whiff of weed sometimes especially in crowded places but like it's not a big deal.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There's always something to do if you're not into drugs or partying. You'll find a ton of other kids who aren't. Or you'll find kids who love partying. Every kind of person goes to this school.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: Its everywhere. If you want it you can get it but then again this is the same on all campuses.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drugs are here and have always been around. Alcohol and weed are probably the most popular. People will occasionally take Adderall to study. I don't really recommend doing any of the three.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Ann Arbor is relatively lenient when it comes to drugs and drug penalties. Marijuana has been decriminalized in the past, and today, being caught only warrants a small fine. Every spring, students and Ann Arbor residents come together on the University lawns to celebrate their annual Hash Bash—a festival of sorts, protesting marijuana laws, among other things. Although drug laws aren't stringent, this does not mean that all students partake in the drug scene. Students find that although drugs are available, if you want them, you have to seek them out. Alcohol, on the other hand, is prevalent in many social settings. Regardless, there are plenty of people who abstain from drugs and alcohol. Michigan is by no means defined by its drug scene, and ultimately, using drugs is a choice.
