    There may have been somewhat of an increase due to the law, but overall, it's definitely because of the Common App.

    Orr inherently distrusts anyone who has not shat in public. If you could provide a reference or two, I'm sure he'd be much more open to your point of view.

    Loosened marijuana restrictions are the front porch of a university.

    story from Little H's frosh orientation back in August...

    student presenter is going through a slide deck, talking about dorm and university policies, mostly boring stuff. gets to the section on alcohol, spends ~30 minutes and several slides talking about the evils of alcohol: correlation to date rape, drunk driving, medical issues, emotional issues, alcholism, poor academic performance, etc... Finishes on alcohol rant .. next slide is marijuana: ~7 seconds stating "CU is a non-smoking campus -- you should know that" ... next slide and he's now talking about the dining halls or something totally different. pauses, remembers he forgot to say something, goes back in the Powerpoint deck to the weed slide and says "oh yeah, you shouldn't smoke if you've been drinking alcohol".

    Just a CYA so they can say they warned you when something comes up.

    :nod: Any increase is probably cancelled out by parents who don't want their kids to come here now because of the Devil's plant. You might see an increase in transfers though. We were already a pot Mecca for kids who were suspended or kicked out of their previous college for Mj use.

    I'm sure most students who are applying to a university for weed probably had CU at the top of the list anyway. We don't won't students who didn't do their homework.
