With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about drug policy (and drug use). During the holiday season, alcohol and drug use rates often increase, especially on campus. Students for Sensible Drug Policy does not condone nor condemn drug use; rather, we realize that it is a reality on our campuses and in our communities. We know that no drug use is completely safe, but as SSDP, we seek to reduce the harms associated with partying and drug use by advocating for harm reduction and sensible drug policy. A sensible drug policy is one that encourages people to take care of themselves and the people around them.
