Colorado cops give student his pot back
The University of Colorado Police
Department returned 2 ounces of medi-
cal marijuana to Colorado sophomore
cating the drug from himlast May, Rocky
Mountain News reported.
Nicholson, whose brother suffers
from chronic, debilitating pain due to
football injuries, is the legal caregiver
for his brother, allowing him to hold
and administer the drug.
After facing criminal charges for
drug possession and suspension from
the University, Nicholson hired an
attorney and threatened to sue CU,
who has since dropped the charges and
altered their rules.
The University still has a strict poli-
cy against drug possession on campus,
but students holding medical marijua-
na cards may now request to move off
campus to avoid school punishment.
AN UGLY MESSAGE
Last week a custodian at George Fox
University found a cutout image of Sen.
Barack Obama hanging from a tree
along with the words, "Act Six reject,"
spray-painted next to it, the Oregonian
Act Six is a program at the school
that gives scholarships to minority stu-
dents who show leadership potential
during high school.
Robin E. Baker, president of the
Quaker-affiliated institution with about
a quarter of its enrollment comprised
of minority students, met with Act Six
members and the entire student body
last week on separate occasions.
STUDENT CHARGED FOR THREATS
Colgate University senior George So,
who was accused of posting a shoot-
ing threat on the website JuicyCampus.
com, recently paid nearly $5,000 to law
enforcement agencies, the Post-Standard
The message was titled "I wonder if I
could shut down the school," and read:
"If someone put the effort into writing a
big long serious suicide note informing
all readers that he would kill over 100
kids, they could shut down the school."
Police then traced the online message
back to So, who received three years
probation and was required to write let-
ters of apology.
Colgate did not suspend or expell So for
making the threat.
EVOLUTION OF APPLICANTS
In addition to a written statement,
students applying to Michigan State
University now have the option to send a
personal, videotaped message with their
application, the State News reported.
Jim Cotter, director of admission
as MSU, said some students articu-
late who they are very clearly in writ-
ing, but everyone is different and this
enables disadvantaged applicants
Students can upload their videos to You-
Tube.com and sent it to college admissions
offices by registering with CollegeSupple-
ment.com for free.
