Pacific Lutheran University is a liberal arts college in Parkland, Wash. With all the buzz about marijuana in Washington state, examining the policies regarding marijuana at PLU seemed necessary. According to campus policy, “Marijuana use and/or possession is prohibited on the PLU campus. PLU is obliged to follow federal law that prohibits marijuana use – as are all colleges and universities that accept and offer federal financial aid. Therefore, marijuana (cannabis) will continue to be considered an Illegal Drug under the terms of the PLU Student Code of Conduct.” Students at PLU had strong opinions both for and against the policy.
