You might have heard marijuana is a great way to wind down and relax. It is legal in some states, so it can’t be all that bad, right? The truth of the matter is using marijuana can result in a misdemeanor and possible jail time. Marijuana is still illegal in Louisiana and Southeastern is a tobacco/drug free campus. In additional, marijuana has serious health effects as you will learn in the enclosed article. Does it still sound like harmless fun? Before you start thinking marijuana is just an easy way to have a good time and get high, remember to ask yourself, “Is it worth it?” and choose wisely. This message is brought to you in partnership with the TRACC Coalition, Florida Parishes Human Services Authority and Southeastern Office of Student Advocacy and Accountability.
