You forgot to mention that the story this opinion piece refers to was prominently placed on YOUR front page too... Nice attempt at back pedaling...

I went to CSUMB and honestly comparing it to living in SF and talking to folks who went to private liberal arts schools, art schools, Cal, or UCSC the drug use is really nothing to write home about. Most parties there was a little weed smoking but not as much as parties I've been to at campuses and though I partied pretty hard there was rarely access/ interest in harder drugs or psycadellics. There also was 0 use of study drugs that I was aware of unlike every private college graduate I know who did mad amounts of speed, like I said this is coming from a very socially active person who was friends with all the crazy radicals at CSUMB, ranking at all as a druggy campus is total bunk and I'm not even a sober, anti-drug person.
