According to the Department of Health and Human Services, the
number of college students who use drugs has gone down significantly
in recent years. That’s not to say that drug use isn’t prevalent
on college campuses. At some schools, the number of students who
abuse drugs is greater than 50 percent.
You’ve heard it a thousand times before, but it’s definitely worth
repeating: don’t use drugs. You’re just going to waste your college
career, make a fool of yourself, and flush a lot of good opportunities
down the toilet. College students who use drugs have more difficulty
keeping their grades up than those who don’t. And you will literally
be putting your life at risk every time you get high.
