On Nov. 8, 2016, the voters of California passed Proposition 64, which, in certain specific contexts, legalized non-medical production, sale, possession and use of marijuana by those ages 21 and older.
Please be advised that it will remain a violation of University policy to possess, sell, distribute, or use marijuana at CSU San Marcos. The university does not anticipate a change in policy and existing policies will be enforced.
While Proposition 64 does not have any provisions that limit use on college campus properties, the federal Drug-Free School and Communities Act (DFSCA) and Drug-Free Workplace Act require that CSU San Marcos take all reasonable measures to prevent the illegal use of drugs on our campus (including campus housing), and at University-sponsored events and activities. Failure to follow these laws would result in the University losing eligibility for federal financial aid for our students as well as federal grants and contracts. Marijuana is still defined as an illegal drug under federal law.
