The University of California prohibits the use, possession, and sale of marijuana in any form on all university property, including university-owned and leased buildings, housing, and parking lots. Marijuana is also not permitted at university events or while conducting university business.

California voters recently approved Prop. 64 legalizing the use of recreational marijuana among people over the age of 21, but that did not change UC policy. Marijuana remains prohibited on all university property and at all university events, except for approved academic research that complies will all federal registration and licensing requirements.

Federal law still prohibits the use or possession of marijuana, and institutions receiving federal funding must establish policies that prohibit marijuana use, possession, and distribution on campus and in the workplace. Violating the university’s policies may be grounds for discipline or corrective action, which may include required participation in a treatment program, with a maximum penalty of dismissal.
