Mills College still held to federal law on marijuana

Proposition 64 went into full effect Jan. 1, 2018, making recreational marijuana legal throughout California.

For Mills, nothing has changed. Because we are still a federally funded college, we must adhere to federal regulations. However, once off campus, California State legislation takes over

In the Mills handbook it specifically addresses the new legislation.

“Due to the Drug Free Schools Act, when marijuana becomes legal in California in 2018 it will still not be allowed on the Mills College property or at official Mills events off campus. Enforcement steps may include unannounced room or apartment searches, private investigations and coordination with law enforcement officials.”

Oakland is one of only four cities in California currently issuing licenses for selling recreational marijuana.
