How Columbians experience drugs

  • Illustration by Tiffany Fang
  • From the editor:

    “College is a time of experimentation.”

    And so goes the refrain. I’ll admit—my own experimentation has been rather vanilla with drugs, I think.

    But it’s hard to have a basis for what your peers are doing. After all, the only real way to get an accurate sense of student wide habits and trends is large scale surveys—which, by virtue of the fact that we’re college students and generally only do things when there is free food or the crushing fear of failure as motivators, are often inaccurate.

    In creating this week’s spread, my objective was not to strive for any sort of representative sampling of the campus population’s drug use. Rather, I was interested in simply having four different drugs, four different narratives, and four different ways to understand how drugs shape our lives at Columbia.

    For all our pomp and circumstance about intellectualism and our late night philosophizing, I think we often fail to engage meaningfully with drugs—thoughtfully with drugs. Too often, we are solely academic in our approach, or too personal and close to the experience, or maybe just blotto ourselves, and in no condition to think about drugs properly.

    Or perhaps mid-use is the best time to think about drugs.

    Not that we’re endorsing that or anything.

    Yours,

    I was just seeking this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it
    in your web site. I wonder what's the lack of Google strategy that
    do not rank this kind of informative websites in top of the
    list. Normally the top websites are full of garbage.

    Coffee and cigarettes are drugs? This school is lamer than the church of latter day saints.
