Members of the University community are subject to federal, state
and local laws. Illinois law prohibits the possession or use of
marijuana, narcotics and hallucinogenic drugs, either in the
refined or crude form, except under the direction of a licensed
physician or dentist. The possession, use, intention to distribute,
sale or distribution of illegal drugs, controlled substances,
narcotics, drug paraphernalia, or any hallucinogen without a
medical prescription or appropriate authority are prohibited.
Violations of these regulations may result in disciplinary action,
ranging from a written statement of an official warning up to legal
civil actions and expulsion from the University. Individuals
convicted of unlawfully possessing or distributing illicit drugs
and alcohol may face misdemeanor or felony charges, which are
punishable by sanctions up to and including imprisonment.
