MIDDLETOWN, CT (WFSB) - Wesleyan University in Middletown made a national list that ranked marijuana usage among colleges and universities.

The Princeton Review released a "Reefer Madness" list of the top 20 schools in terms of pot usage.

Wesleyan came in at number 4.

Researchers said they surveyed 140,000 students at 385 colleges on a number of school-related topics, including academics, college life, fellow students and themselves.

Marijuana use fell under their "social scene" topic, which asked students the question "how widely is marijuana used at your school?"

Answers were given in a percentage range.

The University of Vermont, Pitzer College in California and the University of Rhode Island rounded out the top 3.

Other nearby schools on the list included the University of Maine at 7, Ithaca College at 17 and Syracuse University at 19.

Nice to see CT tops the list in something positive for a change. But if people were really concerned (and they have no reason to be), then they should support the legalization of recreational use. Colorado saw an immediate and steady decline in marijuana use by school children after it was made legal.


I blame the system on any out of control kids, I blame Dr Phil and DCF. Parents for having kids they can't control, The system for allowing this to happen, Dr Phil with the "Don't spank your kids" and DCF for getting involved just to make Money.
