Question: Drug use in Professional School???
« on: May 20, 2008, 02:02:46 PM »
I am a 0L and I am curious to know if people continue to use drugs while in professional school.  My ex-girlfriend is currently in medical school, and she notified me that many of her classmates use drugs, namely pot and cocaine.  I honestly find it hard to believe that medical and/or law school students would continue to use drugs throughout their professional school experience.  It would be scary to know that your future doctor or lawyer is a recreational drug user. 

Seriously discuss...please tell me what you think.

My gf at medical school came out of her pharm lecture where cocaine was discussed with an extreme interest in trying it.  That said, the party atmosphere at her school is pretty much limited to the straight out of undergrad crowd.  I wouldnt be afraid to accept help from a doctor or lawyer who may or may not have "smoked the pot" (and as Irrx has pointed out, I'd assume my lawyer was probably on viks anyways ;-) ).

Do you think it is cool for Attorneys to drink occasionally? Same thing, get high.

I was always under the impression that professionals drink because their life ISNT cool.

lol interesting, good stuff.  But I hope that you are sarcastically comparing drinking to getting high.

I am sure they differ in some aspects and are very similar in others, I wouldn't know. However by your screen name I would suggest you do.

Is your avatar in a police uni?  If so, I agree.
