Controlled Substances

Saint Peter’s University is committed to maintaining a drug-free environment for the students and employees. In our attempt to support (provide for) this drug-free environment (policy), the University is committed to enforcing the following policy:

  1. It is unlawful for a student or employee to manufacture, distribute, dispense, sell or use a controlled substance. Controlled substances include, but are not limited to, illegal drugs, such as marijuana, heroin, cocaine, crack, MDMA (Ecstasy), GHB, Ketamine, and Rohypnol. This policy also covers the distribution of prescription drugs including Oxycodon and Ritalin for use other than as prescribed. The use of these or any other substances for the purpose of altering perceptions and/or motor abilities is a violation of University policy.
  2. Any individual who violates University policy will be subject to immediate disciplinary action. This disciplinary action may take the form of probation, suspension, or dismissal.
  3. Any student or employee who violates the above prohibitions will be subject to all of the legal sanctions established by law.

NOTE: The definition of a “controlled dangerous substance” has been expanded to include any drug or substance which, when ingested, is metabolized or otherwise becomes a controlled dangerous substance in the human body.
