MCCC has a strict policy on drug use.
“Students are prohibited from the following when attending classes, on campus, or in any vehicle used for College business: ‘the unlawful use, possession, transportation, manufacture, sale or other distribution of an illegal or controlled substance or drug paraphernalia.’ “
