* Designer drugs: psychosis, instant paralysis and brain
damage, death.
In addition, "date-rape" drugs Rohypnol and GHB may
cause a weakened or unconscious state often followed by
amnesia.
Drug and alcohol abuse can reduce the body's resistance to
infections and bring about malnutrition, organ damage, and
mental illness. Overdoses of almost all these substances
can cause psychosis, convulsions, coma, and death.

Legal Sanctions

In Pennsylvania, the purchase, consumption, transportation,
or possession of alcoholic beverages by a person younger
than 21 is punishable by a loss of driving privileges and
fines of up to $300 for the first offense and up to $500 for
subsequent offenses. (18 Pa.C.S.A. § 6308; 18 Pa.C.S.A.
§ 6310.4.) Misrepresentation of age to procure or furnish
alcoholic beverages for oneself is a summary offense
punishable by a fine of up to $300 for a first offense and
is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500
for a subsequent offense. All such violations are also
punishable by a loss of driving privileges. (18 Pa.C.S.A.
§ 6307.) Misrepresentation of the age of another for the
purpose of procuring alcoholic beverages for that person
is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not less than
$300. (18 Pa.C.S.A. § 6309.) The intentional and knowing
sale or furnishing of alcoholic beverages to a person less
than 21 years of age is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine
of not less than $1,000 for a first offense and $2500 for
subsequent offenses. (18
Pa.C.S.A. § 6310.1.) Manufacturing, making, altering,
selling, or attempting to sell a false identification card is a
misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not less than $1,000
for a first offense and not less than $2500 for subsequent
offenses. (18 Pa.C.S.A. § 6310.2.)
The penalties for the unlawful possession, use, or
distribution of illicit drugs are more diverse than those
governing underage drinking and vary depending upon the
nature of the drug involved and the nature of the activity.
For example, unlawful possession of 30 grams or less of
marijuana or eight grams or less of hashish, for example, is
a misdemeanor punishable by a term of imprisonment of up
to 30 days and a fine of up to $500 or both. (35 P.S. §780113[a][31] and [g].)
At the other end of the scale, the manufacture, delivery, or
possession with intent to manufacture or deliver heroin or
other narcotics is a felony carrying a penalty punishable by
a term of imprisonment of up to 15 years or a fine of up to
$250,000 or both. (75 P.S. § 780-104; 35 P.S. §780-113[a]
[30] and [f][1].) A complete summary of penalties related to
unlawful possession, use, or distribution of alcohol or illicit
drugs can be found in the Campus Safety Office. Individuals
seeking advice regarding drug or alcohol-related laws should
consult legal counsel.
