Carl Albert State College Drug-Free School and Community Policy.
Carl Albert State Coll., Poteau, OK.
This pamphlet, designed for distribution to students and employees of Carl Albert State College, Oklahoma, reviews the risks associated with alcohol and drug use and establishes standards of conduct relating to drug use. The section detailing health risks covers overdoses, chemical dependency, ill health, and the accidents which can result from loss of control due to drug use. The section on standards of conduct makes clear that the consumption or possession of alcohol or other drugs on campus, in campus housing or at any campus functions is forbidden. A section on sanctions treats the possible penalties incurred for violation of school policy, the possibility of involvement of law enforcement authorities, and the responsibility of any offender to seek treatment or counseling. There follows a section on the Oklahoma State law regarding alcohol (blood alcohol levels for driving under the influence, transporting open containers, legal age limits, county variations on regulation of the sale of alcohol) and illicit drug legislation (use, possession, distribution, cultivation, and manufacture). The following section lists penalties under federal law particularly in relation to the Controlled Substance Act of 1971. A final section lists titles of area referral sources such as the Carl Albert State College Drug Education program, and area treatment facilities. (JB)
