Medical Marijuana is one of the hottest topics in Michigan but Michigan State University wants no part of it.

MSU freshman, Gagan Sandhu said, "They usually have dogs that come in every once in a while. someone's already been caught and suspended from MSU."

University officials say the campus abides by Federal Law and is drug-free. MSU spokesman Kent Cassella released a statement that said, "MSU’s policies have not changed. Students and employees may not use or possess marijuana on campus. However, MSU will make certain accommodations for registered patients by waiving the requirement for them to live on campus or by allowing them to end their housing contract and move off campus without penalty."

Even with these stict rules in place, students say finding pot on campus isn't hard.

"I have smelled it walking into buildings in resident halls," said MSU student Alex Barber.

"You can find it if you go looking for it," said MSU student Erik Bates.

Students and staff do not feel that marijuana is a large problem on campus. At a medical marijuana dispensary near campus, an employee said that 30 percent of its customers are college age. These local dispensaries will have to hault their sales of marijuana until February due to the moratorium imposed by the East Lansing City Council. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
