Illicit drugs have long been alluring to college students, who are in a stage of life where they are finding their path and pushing the boundaries of their independence for the first time. However, today's drugs are becoming more available and perhaps more dangerous than ever before.
The issue surrounding college students and recreational drug use was highlighted last fall, when two college students died at the Lost Lands Music Festival in Licking County. According to WHIZ News, two concert goers were found unresponsive at the festival, which had about 40,000 attendees. The two unresponsive individuals received medical care and were taken to a hospital, only to be pronounced dead a few hours later.
