Penn State does not condone the medically unsupervised use, possession, sale, manufacture, or distribution of drugs that are illegal, that may involve medical or psychological hazards to an individual, or that may lead to interference with the rights or privileges of others.  When such activity occurs on campus, the University will initiate appropriate measures, which may include disciplinary actions.
