College is a time to find yourself; make new friends and experience new things. Many people experiment with sex, alcohol, music, fashion, etc, while others gravitate towards drugs. Most of the time, student stick to marijuana, but they do not go that heavily into the rabbit hole. But even party drugs like ecstasy or “E” can do damage to that student in the near future, and if use continues over time, in the long run. It may give you a special kind of “high,” but continued use could eventually render you mentally impaired.

Many people are still quite functional, but not to their original capacity. While others become totally impaired mentally.

As a freshman in college, Jenna was excited about being free to do as she wanted; no parents around to get on her case. She took full advantage of that freedom and started hanging out with some new friends she had met in her dorm. They coaxed her into trying a few things she had never done before – drinking alcohol, ditching class and eventually drugs. It started off with marijuana, but Jenna decided it was not for her because it made her “too relaxed and lazy.” They presented her with “E” and told her it was a pick-me-up. Since they were friends, Jenna trusted their judgment and did the drug. She started doing it on a regular basis for that feeling of sensation. But what she didn’t realize was the negative effects it was having on her body. Effects that went deeper than just what she felt on the outside. Jenna was found one day in her dorm, passed out from an apparent overdose. Her body was burning up. They rushed her to the hospital where she spent three days in a coma. Her family drove up to be by her side. Once she woke up, the noticed her speech was different and her memory was not the same. Now Jenna lives at home with her family. She functions well enough but still has severe memory issues.
