Like almost any other university, there are drugs present on Princeton's campus. The drug scene on Princeton's campus is not very visible, but it is present. With the strong presence of eating clubs as the main dining and social option for students, alcohol is the source of the majority of strain in the relationship between administrators and students. Each weekend, a number of students have to visit McCosh Health Center, or "get McCosh-ed," for alcohol-related issues. Other than alcohol, marijuana is the most prevalent drug on campus.
Increasingly, a small minority of Princeton students have started to use drugs other than alcohol and marijuana. A recent article in the Daily Princetonian reported an increasing presence of drugs such as cocaine and Adderrall on campus. Because of the academic pressures, some students opt to use prescription drugs, such as Ritalin, to stay awake to do work. Most students at Princeton do not use drugs, and it is by no means a widespread problem.
