SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Young voters helped pass laws legalizing marijuana in Washington and Colorado, but many still won’t be able to light up. “Everything we’ve seen is that nothing changes for us,” said Darin Watkins, a spokesman for Washington State University in Pullman. So despite college cultures that include pot-smoking demonstrations each year on April 20, students who want to use marijuana will have to do so off campus. ”The first thing you think of when you think of legalized marijuana is college students smoking it,” said Anna Marum, a Washington State senior from Kelso, Wash. “It’s ironic that all 21-year-olds in Washington can smoke marijuana except for college students.” But the laws are fraught with complications, especially at places like college campuses. At Washington State, students who violate the code face a variety of punishments, up to expulsion, Watkins said. The same is true at the University of Colorado Boulder, where the student code of conduct prohibits possessing, cultivating or consuming illegal drugs. ”If you possess marijuana and are over 21, you still may face discipline under the student code of conduct,” Huff said. Gary Gasseling, deputy chief of the Eastern Washington University police department, said that while they await guidance from the state Liquor Control Board, which is creating rules to govern pot, one thing is clear. ”The drug-free environment is going to remain in place,” he said.
Didn’t I just write something about colleges that sums this up? Can I just copy and paste it? Something is awesome: ban it. Something is legal: don’t allow it. Because you’re far more important than things like “the law.” Just keep babysitting everybody and treating adults like children. All good. So true what Anna Marum said too. Kind of funny that 18-22 year old college kids went out in full force to vote for legalizing weed and succeeded so now weed is legal…for everyone except them. Ah well, you stoners will be just fine hanging tapestries over your windows and smoking secretly on your dorm room floor like you always have. It’s cooler that way anyway.
