In today’s Pope Center piece, Duke Cheston writes about the apparent increase in drug use among college students.

This shouldn’t surprise anyone. Combine an academic environment in which, for many students, course demands are low and (thanks to grade inflation) the consequences of sloughing off are not severe, with students who are enrolled mostly because they’ve been told that it’s essential to get a degree just because it’s now expected, and you get a lot of drug abuse.
