The Board of Regents Handbook, Title 4, Chapter 20, Section 4, states the Nevada System of Higher Education's (NSHE) alcoholic beverage policy. It governs storage, possession, and use of alcoholic beverages by people of legal age. It also mandates disciplinary action against “any student who exhibits offensive behavior on university-owned or supervised property while under the influence of alcoholic beverages.” Use and possession of alcohol and drugs are addressed in the Student Code of Conduct. Legal sanctions are governed by the Nevada Revised Statutes. Such sanctions result from a police report filed with the District Attorney’s Office. Legal action may take place concurrently with campus disciplinary action.
The following conduct is prohibited:
(s) Use, possession, or distribution of alcoholic beverages without authorization (except as expressly permitted by System or Institutional regulations, such as the Alcoholic Beverage Policy), or public intoxication. Alcoholic beverages may not, in any circumstances, be used by, possessed by, or provided to, any person under 21 years of age.
Alcohol will only be permitted on the Great Basin College campus and properties when pre-approved in writing by the president for a specific event. During that event alcohol will only be served to those persons presenting verification they are of legal drinking age in Nevada.
The following conduct is prohibited:
(t) Use, possession, manufacturing or distribution (hereinafter “use”) of marijuana, heroin, narcotics, or other controlled substances, use or possession of any illegal and/or unauthorized drugs, prescription drugs, and drug paraphernalia or being under the influence of illegal drugs except as expressly permitted by law. Use, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana on any NSHE or NSHE foundation owned or leased property, or at any NSHE sponsored or authorized activity, is expressly prohibited.
The Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) is sympathetic to the medical needs of our students, employees and visitors. A growing number of states, including Nevada, are enacting laws decriminalizing or legalizing the use, possession, delivery, manufacture, growth, distribution, production, and/or cultivation (hereinafter “use”) of medical marijuana. Federal law prohibits the use of medical marijuana on college and university campuses that receive federal funding. The following provisions shall govern the possession and use of medical marijuana on NSHE property.
The Board of Regents recognizes the Nevada Legislature’s stated commitment to a program evaluating the medical use and distribution of medical marijuana to be conducted by the University Of Nevada School Of Medicine. Any NSHE institution may engage in medical marijuana research that is conducted in accordance with state and federal laws and regulations, provided that the following are obtained: (a) the prior written consent of the president of the institution, after consultation with the institution’s general counsel; and (b) legal authorization from the proper federal authorities for approved research purposes.
