Eight at Pot Party Expelled by Brown

Brown University has expelled eight undergraduates for using marijuana. The university had remained silent about rumors of an early December off-campus marijuana party involving up to 16 Brown and Pembroke students despite inquiries from the Brown Daily Herald, the UPI and the Providence journal.

No Details Released

In accord with university policy the expelled eight were not identified. The university has refused to say how or when it learned of the party, when the students were expelled, or whether any more students will be disciplined. Apparently, the Providence police learned of the episode only recently.

The Brown incident follows one at Cornell. On March 2 two Cornell students were arraigned on marijuana charges which grew out of a local, state, and federal investigation after a Connecticut College girl became ill on dope obtained from a Cornell friend.
