A Special Message to the CSUSB Community:

With the recent passage of Proposition 64 (California Marijuana Legalization Initiative), it is important for the CSUSB campus community to understand what influence this new legislation has on campus. As a recipient of federal financial aid funds, CSUSB is required to follow federal law, which supersedes the new legislation in California.  Federal law requires the campus to maintain a drug-free community, prevent illegal drug use, and discipline those involved.  Consistent with the Federal Controlled Substances Act, it remains illegal at CSUSB to possess, use, consume, transport, cultivate, and/or sell marijuana on campus, including campus housing.

For more information on campus impacts due to Proposition 64, please contact University Police at 909/537-5165 or the Dean of Students Office at 909/537-5185.
