Prevent Drug-related Crimes
Protect your future and your friends’ future!
Say “No!” to drugs!!
Use of illegal drugs including marijuana has become a major social problem.
Cultivating, using and possessing marijuana and other drugs are strictly prohibited by law, and are subject to severe disciplinary actions under the University’s Academic Rules and Regulations.
Reference: Agreement at the Meeting of Deans Concerning Article 57 (Disciplinary Actions) of the Academic Rules and Regulations (December 19, 2007)
Under the disciplinary actions prescribed in Items (1) and (4) of Paragraph 2, Article 57 of the Academic Rules and Regulations, a student will be required to withdraw from the University if he/she falls under any of the following for whatever reason:
- Illegal possession of narcotics, stimulant drugs or other illegal drugs
- Commission of an assault using a weapon and so forth
- Commission of an heinous crime (e.g., murder, robbery, rape, arson)
- Commission of a traffic offense (e.g., dangerous driving causing a death, hit-and-run)
Abusing drugs, even if they are not illegal drugs, will damage your body and mind and destroy your relationships with your family and friends. It may even destroy your life as a student and your personality.
What drives people into drug abuse?
- Deception by alluring words: “It’s great for dieting.” “It will relieve you of your tiredness.”
- Peer pressure: “I’ll be ostracized if I’m the only one who doesn’t take the drugs.”
- Stress: “I want to forget bad things that have happened to me.”
- Curiosity: “I just want to try it once.”
We strongly urge our students to be rational and strong-willed in resisting the temptation of illegal drugs such as marijuana, and to be aware of your duty as a student, and to act sensibly.
