As a parent, I believe we should not be in denial about drug and alcohol use -- especially at college. Our kids will be experiencing adult freedoms for the first time and probably make many various and sundry mistakes. That is how the learning process often happens.
It is for this reason I support the "Good Samaritan Policies" being championed by Anthony Varriano. I would like my adult child to know there is a policy in place that would prevent students from being penalized by the school or arrested by the police if they call 911 for a life or death situation resulting from drug or alcohol abuse.
I think the MSU Police Chief, Robert Putzke, is incorrect. I believe every college and university needs to implement a formal policy about this issue. The sentiment "typically students don't get penalized ..." is not good enough for me, as a concerned parent. It is SPECULATION on the Police Chief's part that this policy would be abused by individuals.
"To get the policy implemented, several university departments including the Dean of Students would have to discuss it." Please, to all responsible departments and to the Dean of Students, implement this policy. This won't make the students party harder it will make them party safer.
