Special Announcement: Recreational Marijuana is NOT Legal for International Students

(Although the state of California recently legalized recreational use of marijuana, marijuana use is still illegal under U.S. federal law. Therefore, it is NOT legal for international students, because nonimmigrants and permanent residents are subject to U.S. federal law. Operating a motor vehicle or a bicycle under the influence of any drug or alcohol (or combination of drugs and alcohol) is illegal under California law. An arrest for DUI (driving under the influence) or for drug possession can have a significant, negative impact on one’s immigration status and future visa applications.)
