Today State Initiative 502 (I-502), the legalization of possession and use of a small quantity of marijuana for those 21 and over, goes into effect. HOWEVER, it's important to know that possession of marijuana is still a federal crime. As a state institution that accepts federal funds, we are bound by federal law. Therefore, it is still illegal to posses or use this drug on campus. Thank you for helping us follow the federal law so we don't lose our funding.
