Most anwsers here state that there is NO DRUG USAGE in SRM that’s completely NOT true for Main campus(Kattankulathur) , IDK which campus they are talking about, but if you want to know about the main campus(Kattankulathur) here’s whole picture:
Few things you need to know before getting into the anwser:
BAD PARENTING is not reason or in any way related to People doing DRUGS! It never depends on one’s parents.
Good guys do Good things, Bad guys Do Bad things is WRONG!. It’s completely stupid to even assume that.
NOT all who do drugs are Addicts or failures in studies!!
Now coming to anwser:
Every University has some people doing DRUGS. – YES, I AGREE
But DRUG usage is more prevalent in SRM than In Most other colleges in india. PERIOD
I have friends from most top universities in the country(VIT, SATHYABHAMA, MANIPAL, LPU, IITS, GITAM, BITS). All of them were shoked when they have seen DRUG usage scenario in SRM.
Drug usage is not limited to any particular GENDER, PLACE OF ORIGIN of student, all kind of students do drugs(passive or light or heavy)
In 1st year students do them in Hostel itself!! After that once they shifted to outside residencies there’s no one stop it’s completely thier wish.
I have seen even toppers do drugs, lightly of course. There many students who do drugs regularly (once in a week) and have good acads(if u consider < 7.5 as good). There are many addicts too, a typical class has atleast 2 Drug addicts(students who do drugs daily they can’t even come to class with out smoking up)
Having said this there are people who destroyed their academics due to drugs.
There are all kinds of drugs I’m going to categorize them according to usage:
MARIJAUNA : very high usage, easy to get there are at least 2 dozen peddlers operating at any given time in campus surrounding. Cost’s 500 bucks for stuff worth of 15 mid sized joints( if u know what i mean)
LSD: Moderate usage (usually if there’s a concert or some party). Little hard to get one has pre order it to have. costs 1000–1500 per strip(one strip lasts 8–10 hours approx)
Medically prescribed drugs: Moderate usage, easy to buy just have to go a medical store. Costs 20 times MRP.
Cocaine : very rare, very hard to get, costs like hell
Getting addicted to drugs purely depends on friends you make in SRM, not by your parenting or ur place of origin or your intellectual level.
It completely depends on you to do or not do
