It’s illegal to use, possess, sell, distribute, make, or transfer narcotics, illegal drugs, and prescription drugs (except as prescribed by your physician). Possessing drug paraphernalia on campus is also prohibited.
If you violate these rules, you can:
- Be arrested, fined, or jailed according to state drug laws.
- Face university disciplinary action.
- Have your residence hall housing contract terminated.
You may have the impression that club drugs, or designer drugs such as ecstasy, GHB, ketamine, and rohypnol, are safer than other drugs such as methamphetamine, cocaine, or heroin. They aren’t. They’re illegal, addictive, and can be very dangerous—even deadly.
Consider these facts:
- Club drugs can dull your senses and impair your judgment and coordination.
- Mixing club drugs with alcohol or another depressant can be extremely dangerous, and possibly even kill you.
- Club drugs, which can make you unconscious and unable to move or remember what you did or said, are often used in date rape.
- Ecstasy has long-term effects on your body. Months later you may experience memory loss, confusion, depression, and anxiety.
- GHB can cause loss of muscle control, unconsciousness, seizures, and coma.
- Ketamine can cause hallucinations, amnesia, and respiratory problems.
- Rohypnol can cause weakness, anxiety, and unconsciousness. When mixed with alcohol, it may cause death.
