Policy Content
Trinity University prohibits the use, possession, manufacture, sale, and/or distribution by its students of any illegal drug (or drugs) in any amount regardless of location. (Because it often contains unknown ingredients, and because of health and safety risks, possession or use of synthetic marijuana is prohibited.) Because legal hemp often contains trace amounts of illegal THC, which will show up in field testing as marijuana, hemp is prohibited because it can’t be discerned from illegal marijuana. CBD oils and related products that are legal are generally permitted.

Trinity University prohibits use, possession, manufacture, sale, and/or distribution of any substances used or intended to cause impairment, including intoxication or hallucinations.

Any act that results in another person involuntarily or unknowingly consuming any illegal drug (or drugs) or dangerous substances and misuse or sharing or using of prescription drugs from others is prohibited.

Trinity University prohibits the use and/or possession of paraphernalia used for smoking tobacco, illegal drugs, and/or dangerous substances. Paraphernalia is defined as any item designed, produced, or used for the sole purpose of consuming of noted substances as well as any make-shift items that are constructed specifically for consuming of such substances or used for drug consumption. Paraphernalia includes hookahs as well as any device designed to mask the indications of use of noted substances.

The University offers assessment and referrals for treatment of drug abuse. These services are offered by Counseling Services on a confidential basis to members of the University community who seek such assistance.
