Fact: 27% of UNH students use marijuana

This morning I was sitting in the MUB food court waiting for my next class to start. A specific table tent advertisement caught my eye, and surprise surprise, it was the latest statistic from UNH Health Services. It read: "Do you know that 73% of UNH students DO NOT use marijuana." That is a pretty strong majority of students who don't some pot, but then I thought about that for a second. That means that 27% of UNH students, or more than 1/4, do smoke pot. 27% is roughly 3,000 students, which is enough to fill Williamson, Christensen, and Stoke. TWICE! That is true because that exact phrase was used on their ad that said 27% of students report not drinking. 1 out of 4 is a lot more than you may think. I really think Health Services should just stop it with these facts, because assholes like me will always turn them around. One out of every four students uses drugs and breaks the law and Health Services is proud of that fact! Yay, go Wildcats! In spirit of that fact, here is "Alabama High Test" by Old Crow Medicine Show: (Any yes, he does say "Higher than a Wildcat")

Have a good weekend. 

Stay classy, not UMassy.


  1. You're not an asshole...Unless I am an asshole too which I don't believe is the case. It is just simply reverse math...nothing really characteristically asshole about it-if anything we are observant.

    I also saw this on Friday and immediately wondered why revealing that 1/4+ of the UNH population has used marijuana seemed like a good idea. I don't think this ad is going to last very long. But I might be wrong...hey it might show up on a bus like the other one.

  2. i don't even want to know the stats for umaine...
    though i have an idea what they are

  3. "assholes like me" hahaha
