Colorado colleges blaze the way


Despite state-level legalization, federally funded colleges in Washington and Colorado remain adamant about keeping marijuana off their campuses.
Title 21 of the United States Code, otherwise known as the Controlled Substances Act, outlaws marijuana use across the country, including land-grant institutions like WSU and other universities.
“It’s kind of an interesting situation,” said Mackenzie Whitesell, the director of health for the Associated Students of Colorado State University. “Even though it’s legal here in the state, because it’s illegal at the federal level, it’s not allowed on campus.”
