On Nov. 8, 2016, California voters passed Proposition 64 legalizing the use of recreational marijuana among people over the age of 21. This law went into effect on Jan. 1, 2018. It is essential to understand that Proposition 64 does not change Loyola Marymount University policy: Marijuana in any form is prohibited on all university property, leased buildings, housing, parking lots and at all university events. Using, distributing or possessing marijuana remains illegal under federal law. The federal Controlled Substances Act criminalizes possession and distribution of controlled substances, including marijuana. The Drug Free Schools and Communities Act and the Drug Free Workplace Act require that Loyola Marymount University, as a recipient of federal funding, establish policies that prohibit marijuana use, possession and distribution on campus and in the workplace. Violating the university’s policies may be grounds for discipline, which may include participation in a treatment program, with a maximum penalty of termination of employment. The university’s Drug Free Campus policy can be accessed here. If you have any questions about the policy, please contact Human Resources at 310.338.3733.
