College, Scholarships, & weed question?

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by TheClassicToker, May 14, 2011.

  1. Hey people. Happy friday the 13th. :D anyways, I have a serious question I hope you guys can help me out with.

    I'm going to be going to community college soon. I got a full tuition scholarship from the board of trustee's for academic excellence, past work experance, and out of school activities. Alot of people have been telling me too be careful not to get caught with cannabis cause it might ruin my scholarship if I get charged with possesion of weed. I had to fill out some paperwork and read terms and regulations of the scholarship. There were 4 rules and regulations to the scholarship I got which I will list below. You will notice it does not mention anything about criminal activity.

    1. The scholarship will only cover spring and fall semesters.
    2. The scholarship will not cover fee's, books, or supplies.
    3. The scholarship is for full time students only.
    4. The scholarship may be canceled if I choose to change my major.

    This was an offical rules and regulations sheet from the college and as you see it does not mention anything about misderminors or illegal activity. Do you think if I got charged with possesion of weed, I could lose this scholarship? I dont think so because it doesent mention anything about criminal activity, but I'm checking with you guys too just be careful.

    PS: I live in PA and the law of PA says that anyone caught with 30 grams or less of weed will be charged with the misderminor of possesion and will have to face a $500 fine or 30 days in prision. Hope that helps and I'm excited to get an awnser back! :D

  2. bump, sorry, I really got to get awnsers for this!
  3. Ahh PA, I use to live there back when I was really young. All the way down in Danville,PA. But your question, I wouldn't know for sure, but I'm pretty sure there are some kind of regulations of criminal activity for scholarships. I hardly doubt they don't acknowledge it. I mean, it is a misdemeanor, so I wouldn't stress it much, but still, watch your back and don't let your guard down. If so, just smoke it at your house or property, and don't carry it till your in college.
  4. Well, I'm sure there is something in the "fine print" that says they reserve the right to revoke your scholarship at anytime. I am currently on a full ride academic scholarship to ASU and they told me the same thing with a similar set of rules (there were six of them) and another friend I knew who had the exact same scholarship got caught drinking and charged with an MIC. They revoked his scholarship. There was nothing in the terms to declare the right to revoke the scholarship specifically for any criminal activity, but the small print got him. Your best bet, don't get caught with weed. A scholarship is a beautiful thing for a college student. I would do everything I could to not fuck it up. Don't look for loopholes to prepare to risk it.

  5. Wrong, even once you are in college and actively on the scholarship, they have equal power to revoke it as before you entered college. Not to mention a greater reason to do so. If you really wanna risk it, go for it. I guess thats where you have to ask yourself if its worth it.

    Why are you worried about getting caught with weed? Just be careful and don't get caught, problem solved.

    As banana pants said, it is possible there are some other terms too. I bet they have an official document stating all of the agreements on their website or something, your best bet is to call them and ask them if those are in-fact the only rules. If those are the only rules, then you should be fine if you were to get caught.
  7. Thanks people. :) I'm very careful the way I go about buying. I'm not like most my friends that go and smoke weed while they drive or walk around town or do it in public. I do it at my friend's apartment inside his bedroom or with other friends at a party or something. Like I said I'm very careful about the way I go about smoking weed. I get paraniod to and often think about situations & have escape routes. haha. But I never saw any small print. Remember, this is community college and not havard.

    Also, can the school or employer find out about small misderminor charges in the state of PA?
