Pot promoted as alcohol alternative

Last Thursday was the first
day of National Alcohol Aware-
ness Month, and to mark the
occasion, students on more
than 80 college campuses
across the country rallied last
week to support marijuana
as an alternative to alcohol,
according to an April 1 article
in The Chronicle of Higher
Education.
Safer Alternative for Enjoy-
able Recreation - a national
non-profit organization devot-
ed to educating people on the
relative safety of marijuana
versus alcohol - organized the
"Nationwide Day of Action" to
promote marijuana as a safer
alternative to alcohol.
According to the Chronicle,
students who took part in the
rallies asked their college presi-
dents to sign the Emerald Ini-
tiative - a document promising
"informed and dispassionate

public debate"on marijuana use.
While 135 college presidents
have signed the Amethyst Ini-
tiative - which calls for the
drinking age to be lowered -
none signed the Emerald Initia-
tive when asked last Thursday,
the Chronicle reported.
LOYOLA LAW SCHOOL
RAISES GPA'S
At Loyola Law School at Los
Angeles, all current students
and alumni who graduated
as early as 2007 are about to
get boosts in their grade point
averages, according to an April
1 article in The Chronicle of
Higher Education.
The law school - ranked
seventh out of20 California law
schools approved by the Ameri-
can Bar Association - is adjust-
ing its grading system to reflect
more accurately the academic

quality of its students, the arti-
cle reported. Those who are
affected by the change will see
their GPAs increase one-third
of a point. This will cause letter
grades to rise, turning a B into a
B+ and a B+ into an A-.
Loyola Law School Dean
Victor Gold said in the article
that the boost will help the
school's students as they enter
a competitive job market.
"We concluded that the
grading. curve was sending
incorrect information about
our students," Gold said in the
article. "And, frankly, it was
putting them at an unfair com-
petitive disadvantage ina pret-
ty tough job market."
NAACP SUES STATE OF
GEORGIA
The NAACP has filed a law-
suit againstthe state of Georgia,

claiming that the state "system-
atically" under funds Georgia's
three black public universi-
ties - Albany State University,
Fort Valley State University and
Savannah State University -
according to an April 2 report
by The Associated Press.
Accordingtothe AP,the law-
suit wasbased on a 2008 report
by The Legal Defense Coalition
for the Preservation of Public
Historically Black Colleges and
Universities. The report claims
that the state violates the Civil
Rights Act of 1964 and the 14th
Amendment by not providing
adequate funding for the state's
three black colleges.
According to the article, the
report asserts that discrimina-
tion by university administra-
tors resulted in the three schools
having "second-class status" and
"de facto segregation."
