Some Reed students complain of marijuana bust

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Some Reed College students are complaining about the police raid on a campus apartment that arrested two 20-year-old students accused of marijuana possession and delivery.

At a student senate meeting Thursday they questioned why the administration chose to call Portland police after campus security officers found 2 to 3 pounds of marijuana and a small amount of ecstasy and LSD. College officials say it upheld an agreement with police on how to deal with student drug use.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/h5324u ) the debate reflects the tension in changing the college's culture of drug tolerance.

The two juniors were evicted after Tuesday's arrests, but they can continue to attend classes.
