UConn Ranked First in Marijuana Activism

New England was well-represented on High Times’ list of colleges.

 

Maruijuana magazine High Times says the University of Connecticut leads the way when it comes to marijuana activism.

High Times wrote:

The Huskies of UConn SSDP have led the pack this year in reforming marijuana policy both on and off campus. Most notably, they played a huge role in helping pass medical marijuana legislation in Connecticut by hosting rallies, coordinating student-lobbying efforts and testifying before lawmakers. No wonder UConn won the “Campus Change” award at the 2012 International SSDP Conference in Denver this March. 

New England colleges were featured several times in the top-20 list. Northeastern University in Boston was ranked second, Brown University in Providence, R.I. was ranked fourth, University of New Hampshire in Durham was ranked seventh and and University of Rhode Island in Kingston was ranked ninth.

The article noted that marijuana legalization is being considered by voters in three states and “students have been playing a vital role in ending the War on Pot.”
