TCNJ Drug Policy
TCNJ has strict rules when it comes to possession, use or distribution of drug, narcotics, controlled dangerous substances (“CDS”) and drug paraphernalia. If you or your loved one allegedly possessed, used or distribution drugs at TCNJ, hiring a skilled criminal attorney is essential to protecting your interests. Our Ewing NJ Criminal Attorneys can assist you in this role with several former prosecutors that have been defending CDS charges in Mercer County for over 100 years between us. To speak to a lawyer immediately about the marijuana, cocaine, MDMA, LSD or prescription drug case you are facing, contact our Lawrence New Jersey Office at 609–683–8102.Drugs, Narcotics, Controlled Substances, and/or Paraphernalia
- Unlawful possession, use, purchase, or attempted purchase of Drugs, Narcotics, or Controlled Substance and/or Paraphernalia.
- Unlawful manufacture, distribution, or intended distribution of Drugs, Narcotics, or Controlled Substance and/or Paraphernalia.
- Misuse or misappropriation of any prescription or over-the-counter medication.
- Knowingly being in the presence of the illegal use of a Drug, Prescription Drug, Narcotic, or Controlled Substance.
- Disrupting the campus or off-campus community or engaging in any Policy violation while under the influence of a Drug, Controlled Substance, or Narcotic.
- The College’s highest priority is the physical and mental health, safety, and well-being of individual Students and the campus community. Therefore, no Student seeking medical attention by contacting either College or local authorities for a Drug overdose (nor a Student who seeks medical attention on behalf of the affected Student) and cooperates with and/or assists any medical, College, or law enforcement officials will be formally charged under the Student Conduct Code for the unlawful use or possession of a Drug. Although this does not relieve any Student or organization from responsibility for other Policy violations that may have occurred prior to seeking medical attention, the effort to seek help for the affected Student may be a mitigating factor in sanctioning. Affected Students may be required to complete an evaluation or other education programs, but will not face disciplinary charges or sanctions as prescribed through the student conduct process.
- Although New Jersey state law permits the use of medical marijuana within narrowly tailored circumstances, federal laws prohibit marijuana use, possession, and/or cultivation at educational institutions and on the premises of other recipients of federal funds. The use, possession, or cultivation of marijuana for medical purposes is therefore not allowed on any College property, nor is it allowed at any College-sponsored event or activity off campus.
