Substance Abuse

UMPD investigates incidents of illegal drug use and underage consumption of alcohol.

Actions taken by UMPD vary based on the substance(s) involved, the amount of the substance(s) involved, and other contextual information.  According to Florida state and federal laws, anyone found in possession of illegal substances, including marijuana or any other prescription drug without a verified prescription (see the link on the left-hand side for the latest information on medical marijuana usage in the state of Florida), will be subject to arrest and, in addition, will be referred to the Dean of Students office for further disciplinary action.

For prevention information, assistance, and resources about alcohol and drug abuse, please visit the websites of the UM counseling Center and PIER 21 campus organization.
