Legal Ramifications

Any student who is found buying alcoholic beverages for a minor or selling unlawful drugs will be asked to withdraw from WWU.  Since this activity is a legal violation, the appropriate law enforcement officials may be notified.

  1. The Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 prohibits “the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession or use of a controlled substance in the workplace.”  A controlled substance is a drug placed under Federal Law for control or dispensing based upon the substance’s medical use, potential for abuse, and potential for leading to physical or psychological dependency.
  2. The Drug-Free Schools, and Communities Act Amendment of 1989 “clearly prohibits, at a minimum, the unlawful possession, use or distribution of unlawful drugs and alcohol by students and employees on its property or as part of any of its activities.”
