In response to a past incident involving marijuana, Chuo University has sought to fulfill our social responsibility in preventing drug abuse and our responsibility to educate students about the perils of drug use. To realize this goal, we established a Council to Prevent Abuse of Marijuana and Other Drugs within our university and have conducted integrated university-wide activities to raise awareness towards drug use.
We want all students to know that drug abuse not only harms the user, but also brings unhappiness to your family and all of society!
Furthermore, in the case of designer drugs which circumvent the law, it is unclear what kinds of substances are contained. Some of these extremely dangerous drugs contain substances which are very harmful to the human body. Never use such drugs.
Students who have any concerns regarding drug use should contact the Student Counseling Office or the Health Center. Our university will give first priority to your health and safety, and will introduce the appropriate medical institution.
