This Day In Daily History

Two RAs fired after being accused of smoking pot

Sept. 9, 1975 — A resident advisor from West Quadrandle Residence Hall’s Rumsey house was dismissed after being accused by a resident director of having his hand in a bag of marijuana. Another RA in West Quad was fired one week earlier for having his hand in what appeared to be a bag of marijuana.

The RA admitted to having smoked marijuana, according to the RD who discovered him.

The RA, however, denied this claim. Residents of the dorm believe that the sudden appearance of these violations is the result of more stringent enforcement of the rules, rather than a sudden wave of marijuana use.

One student reported that the first thing an RA said to him when he moved into the dorm was, “Do you want to get high?”

The RAs, who have the responsiblility of enforcing the rules of University Housing on their floor, may have been the reason the rules were not as strictly enforced.

The RD for West Quad, who is responsible for enforcing the rules of University Housing for the entire dorm, denied that he had been operating any differently.

Administrators didn’t want to comment on the situation until a dispute committee had finished reviewing their cases, and had made a decision.
