Is there a drug problem at The University of Alabama? (POLL)

Tuscaloosa Police Chief Steven Anderson said Tuesday that the 74 people (at least 61 of which were students at UA) might end up becoming a record number of arrests. While the majority of the 183 drug charges were dealing with marijuana, other arrests included LSD, cocaine, ecstasy, and mushrooms.

While marijuana might not seem like a serious offense considering it’s slowly becoming legal across the country, the fact that five organizations – TPD, UAPD, Northport PD, U.S. Marshals, Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office – came together for a two-month operation indicates the issue goes beyond “students being students.”

But we want to hear from the Tuscaloosa community. If anyone can answer the problem, it’s the people that understand the culture of the university. Please let us know what you think.
