Marijuana Possession/Use - Colorado Amendment 64

Although possession and use of marijuana consistent with the requirements of the Colorado Constitution is no longer a crime in the State of Colorado effective January 1, 2013, the possession and use of marijuana remains illegal under federal law. Consistent with federal law, including the Controlled Substances Act and the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act, the use and/or possession of marijuana continues to be prohibited while a student is on college owned or college controlled property, and/or any function authorized or supervised by the college and/or in state owned or leased vehicles.

Missing Persons Policy / Emergency Contact Registration

The College requests that all new students provide, on a voluntary basis, emergency contact information each year, in the event that the student would be reported officially missing during his or her time at LCC.

If a LCC residential student is suspected as missing from the campus, immediately contact a member of the Residence Life Staff. If the student resides off campus, contact the Lamar Police Department (719.336.4341).

All missing person reports made to Residence Life and/or Public Safety staff are investigated. If the Lamar Police Department determines that a student for whom a missing person report has been filed has been missing for more than 24 hours, then within the next 24 hours the college will:

Notify the student’s emergency contact;

If the student is under 18 years old, the college will notify a parent or guardian; and;

In cases where the student is over 18 and has not identified an emergency person, the college will notify appropriate law enforcement officials.
