Students for Sensible Drug Policy
Members of the Staff: I know that the tragic events of the past few weeks have caused many of you to feel the same sense of distress and pain that are being felt by so many students, parents, and faculty. In particular, I know that many staff share my feelings of frustration and alarm about the use of dangerous drugs by Reed students, and you want to do something about it. I have one specific suggestion. There will be a community-wide discussion of drug use and the honor principle, sponsored by a student group called Students for Sensible Drug Policy, on Monday evening, April 5th, at 6:00 pm in the Vollum Lecture Hall. I would hope that, if you can spare the time, you would consider attending, if only to get a better sense of how students feel about this issue. Colin Diver
