Higher Education And Marijuana Policy: Is Cannabis Allowed On Campus?
The decision by voters in California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada to legalize marijuana for adults over 21 years old has cultivated a campus cannabis conundrum at higher learning institutions across the US. Overshadowing the legalization in these states and the new medical cannabis laws passed in Arkansas, Florida, Montana and North Dakota; has been whether appointments to the president elect’s cabinet will trump any of these gains in cannabis policy. If you go to a college in one of the 28 states or D.C. that has legalized cannabis for adult use or has medical cannabis laws, there are limitations all students should know about.
The college campus setting and campus sanctioned areas present the college student a conflict in a citizen’s right to cannabis under state laws that are being neutralized by campus rules. In order to maintain funding, college administrators must enforce a campus cannaban which includes dorm rooms and off-site fraternities, sororities and other school-sponsored activities. Unfortunately, though legal at a state level, cannabis is still illegal on college campuses because of the federal funding they receive. Federally-funded institutions of higher education must comply with regulations such as the Drug Free Schools, Communities Act and the Drug Free Workplace Act.

The instant effects are relaxing and pain relieving, a loosening of the muscles and a light numbing of the mind. A great appetite stimulant. Diablo has a THC content up to 20% with a short flowering time. Descended from Blueberry, Grapefruit and South African Sativa.
Turns Out Buying Marijuana is Popular at Christmas, Too
Check that plate of cookies twice before diving in for a post-Christmas treat: It may leave you feeling very naughty or awfully nice, depending on how you handle marijuana edibles.
There are far more cannabis-laced treats lying around households who patronize legal marijuana retail outlets this holiday season. USA Today reports a 21 percent spike in business at dispensaries in California, Colorado, Oregon, Washington and several other states, with the top-selling items being edibles, including cookies and brownies.
In other words, people are buying exactly the kind of present “Santa” may actually want on his plate after a long night arranging everything under the tree (not to mention working overtime in order to pay for it all).
