USC Dorms Offer Marijuana Medicinal Vending Machines
Just like a certain marijuana ATM that was introduced to the world via Los Angeles last month, USC began their medicinal vending machine program this week in the dorms. No, it won't have any smokable green, but it will carry over-the-counter drugs and condoms. While most students quoted in a Daily Trojan article about the new service are excited about the program, they found someone unhappy with one aspect of it.
Ana Hernandez, a freshman majoring in biology, said offering condoms in the vending machines is unnecessary because students can already get them for free. "I think it's stupid," she said. "You can get condoms for free from RAs or go to the prevention center, but the medicine [offered] is convenient."[Daily Trojan]
