The Do's and Don'ts of Marijuana at Citrus
This workshop is held the first Monday of every month to discuss the rules and limitations of marijuana use on Citrus College campus. It goes over the consequences if these rules are broken, as well as possible alternatives to marijuana use for students. This is not an anti-marijuana campaign, but rather an informational session to educate students and avoid any issues of misconduct on campus.
