Summary

This paper discusses the implications of drug usage for higher education. Drug use is not new. However, today there are several problems associated with drug usage: (1) ignorance, (2) semantics, (3) communication, and (4) change as a constant in the world. The reasons for student drug use are discussed. Students use drugs because: (1) they are preconditioned to the legitimacy of drug usage; (2) they want to rebel; (3) they want to escape; (4) they are encouraged by peer group influence; and (5) they are searching for spiritual discovery. Some of the cultural contextual factors include: (1) the generation gap; (2) the educational level of students; (3) the effect of mass communication media; and (4) the awareness of poverty and injustice. Recognizing the various factors, institutions can respond by: (1) creating a climate of openness and trust; (2) making sure information is available; (3) providing source credibility; (4) assisting in the dessemination of alternatives; and (5) attacking the basic problem.
