Despite recent legislation in Maryland, which partially legalized the possession and use of cannabis for adults 21 and older, the use, possession, sale and distribution of cannabis remains prohibited on University property. Cannabis remains a controlled substance under federal law and the University is obligated to comply with the federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act.
Please consider that according to the Lower-Risk Cannabis Use Guidelines*, “There is no universally safe level of cannabis use; thus, the only reliable way to avoid any risk for harm from using cannabis is to abstain from its use." If you are concerned that you or someone you know has developed unhealthy patterns of cannabis use, please contact Tony Dulaney, Clinical Case Manager at email@example.com , 410.837.5159, or by submitting a Compass Case Management Referral Form.

This is a new virus that has spread to countries around the world and it is recommended to avoid close contact with others, wash your hands, and avoid touching your face.
MPX is a rare disease caused by infection with the MPX virus, which is part of the same family of viruses as variola virus, the virus that causes smallpox. MPX symptoms are similar to smallpox symptoms, but milder, and MPX is rarely fatal. Anyone can get MPX and it as a public health concern for all.
