I definitely think that there should be harsher penaltes and punishments when it comes to alcohol and drugs found on campus. I think that if a college and university enforce such rules, it would help to take care of the problems and issues with drugs and alcohol on colleges and universities.
Yes, there should be stricter enforcement and punishments when it comes to alcohol and drugs found on campus, because if colleges were stricter, people would realize that it is serious behavior with serious punishments. Few students would risk getting kicked out of school so that they can party on the weekends.
Drugs and alcohol on campuses, especially college ones, are the least of the staff's worries. Instead of worrying about whether students have drugs and alcohol, the establishment should be more worried about other crimes, such as theft or damage of property, sexual harassment and breaches of academic regulations. Stricter rules on drugs and alcohol do not stop students from partaking.
The problems with alcohol and drug use stem from kids being put in a new environment, right around the age when it is legal to drink, within a society which glorifies escapism and creates emotionally unsatisfying social structures to live in. Alcohol and drug abuse will not be addressed by harsher penalties, but through re-examining the way the society operates.
