to heroin,But even among
students here who smoke pot
every day and trip, speed, and
snort coke, heroin is common-
ly seen as a drug too dangerous
to try even once.
And most ;students tend to
think that a junk habit and
academic survival at college
are mutually exclusive.
"I didn't do that badly in
school here," Karen recalled.
"I came out with a three-point
average. But I felt I could have
done a lot better."

Karen recalled, pulling her long
brown hair back over her head.
"I was paying $25 a spoon.
Normally, that much dope cost
only about $20, but I was cop-
ping really good stuff. I could
have stepped on it and sold it,

"I used to cop in Southfield,"
she continued. "A woman I1

own use, and she used to sell
it to me as a favor. She cops
from a woman in Detroit.
"THE MONEY came from
my parents. They supported
me. I made ends meet by using
practically all my money forI
dope. By the middle of the!

I'd write checks on the money
I'd be getting for the nex
month.
"I spent a lot of money," she
remarked, lighting another cig
arette. "That's one of the mai
reasons I decided to use meth
adone.
"My parents don't know
ever used heroin," she added
"I think they have their susi
picions, but they don't know.
"When I go back to school,'"
Karen said, "I'm not sure wha
I want to study. But medicine
is pretty much out of the pic
tbre now. I might want to g
into something like business ad-
