The 2014-2015 college academic year has just started for most colleges and universities. Here in Miami, students have been back to campus for about a week now and classes have just begun. This is a very busy time for Freshman and returning students alike. New and old friends are meeting up and enjoying themselves all around campus and town.
As I warn every fall, students should be extra careful in these first few weeks of the semester when the police are out in full force patrolling for typical college student illegal activity like drugs use and underage drinking. Many campus police and local police forces will be doing undercover and sting operations looking for drugs and alcohol in and around campus.
Drug and alcohol violations can be serious and have major consequences for college students. Any such arrest for violation should be reviewed by an attorney. Good luck to all the college students (and parents) out there this semester!
