Marijuana & You

As more and more states legalize marijuana for recreational use it becomes increasingly important to stay informed of risks, research, trends, and potential benefits of cannabis. In Washington State, individuals 21 and over can purchase marijuana at licensed stores; however, the use and possession of marijuana on the Puget Sound campus is prohibited.

Unlike alcohol, the majority of Puget Sound students do not use marijuana regularly, despite popular misperceptions. If an individual chooses to use marijuana, it is important to understand the potential not-so-good outcomes and recognize that like any other drug, marijuana can be addictive.

The information on this page is geared towards educating the Puget Sound community about cannabis and aims to provide objective, science-based resources.
