Occasionally, you will see people smoking marijuana at parties and social gatherings, but the drug students turn to the most is alcohol. Many students seem to have the notion that alcohol is a legalized drug and that, therefore, they are above the influence. There's a palpable sense of invincibility that runs through each student, which many times leads to extreme partying. It’s not uncommon to see at least ten kids in one night puking and/or blacking out due to this delusion.
Because of the lack of nightlife at JMU, a large number of students resort to taking part in the drug and party scene. Marijuana is used, but on a smaller scale. Hard drugs are used, but depending on the person, it can be blatant or hush-hush. At times, the drunk bus can be home to drug usage and alcohol stored in water bottles. JMU turns up the intensity on drug safety in general education health classes (G100). Within these classes, kids learn of the risks of taking drugs and how they can avoid falling into that lifestyle in college. JMU police enforce drug safety, and students receive a good base of knowledge regarding marijuana and their future at JMU.
