Recreational marijuana still banned on University Campuses

campus

BOZEMAN - Recreational marijuana sales became legal this year in Montana, but that doesn’t mean it’s allowed everywhere.

It’s still against policy if a student 21 years or older purchases marijuana and takes it onto Montana State University or University of Montana's campus.

“We certainly recognize the new dynamic with dispensaries all around campus and across the river downtown. So, you know, last spring was a learning opportunity for us, but there were no major incidents,” University of Montana communications director Dave Kuntz said.

The short answer is the federal government hasn’t legalized recreational marijuana. MSU says since they receive federal funds, they must adhere to all federal laws.

The University of Montana has the same policy.

The survey was conducted on 19 to 60-year-olds from April to October 2021 and found that 43 per cent of young adults (aged 19 to 30) claimed to have used cannabis 20 or more times over the course of the previous month — a 34 per cent increase from previous survey results. These increases were also present in people aged 54 to 50, but to a lesser degree.
