Campus Drug and Alcohol Policy

See student conduct handbook page 98:

Promoting a drug and alcohol free environment is everyone's responsibility. Halifax Community College supports and is committed to maintaining such an environment for all employees and students. The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession, or use of controlled substance by employees or students at any official college location or any location while engaged in activities on behalf of the college is prohibited. "Controlled substance" generally refers to drugs that have a high potential for abuse. Such drugs include, but are not limited to heroin, cocaine, "crack," marijuana, and PCP. They also include "legal drugs" which are not prescribed by a physician. Likewise, possessing, consuming, or serving alcoholic beverages at any college location is prohibited.
