More in Ivy Drugs

It’s apparently not just Columbia that has a drug market problem.

Hanover, New Hampshire police recently arrested Dartmouth freshman Delos Chang. According to an article by Leslie Ye in The Dartmouth:

Delos Chang ’14, the secretary of the 2014 Class Council, was arrested on six counts of possessing illegal drugs — three of which are felony charges, three of which are misdemeanors, Giaccone said. Chang was released on bail, and a hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 3.

A student who lives on the same dormitory floor as Chang who asked to remain anonymous told The Dartmouth that Chang had said the College had asked him to withdraw.

Authorities declined to say what lead them to investigate Chang or what drugs they found in this room. They may have been tipped off when Change received a shipment of drugs in the mail however.

Obviously this is not the first time that a college student has ever consumed, sold, or possessed drugs, but college students do appear to be getting increasingly bad at managing drug-laden lifestyles, seriously. Coming right after that awkward arrest of a drug dealing gang at Columbia and all, Eve Binder at Ivy Gate is prompted to wonder what’s going on here:

Why [have] Ivy Leaguers… suddenly become so sloppy that they’re letting themselves get caught all the time, rather than successfully hiding cocaine in their hipster backpacks and the heels of their Frye boots like they usually do. One hypothesis: it has something to do with all the freaking LSD, which is making an improbable comeback these days along with its patron saint, Cher. Sooner or later someone’s going to realize that the Ivy League is swimming in a giant cesspool of scummy ecstasy-flavored Altoids.

Seriously, you go to really selective schools. Stop being so dumb. [Image via]
