Manufacture, sale, distribution, dispensation, possession or use of alcohol and controlled substances by University students and employees on University property, at official University functions or on University business is prohibited except as permitted by law, University policy and campus regulations.

All state laws regarding alcohol and drug use apply on campus, as it is not a sanctuary from state law. All drugs made illegal by state and federal law are also prohibited by University policy.
