Heh, I'm sorry Matthew777, but I had to laugh as well when I read that.
I think I know what you mean right now, but when you stated that you signed up for substance-free housing, you mentioned that it was due to illicit drug use. Illicit typically means illegal, which means it isn't allowed in the U.S. at all. You also stated this as a reply to dantxny's post about narcotics. Which are also not legal for recreational use, at all, anywhere, in the U.S.
Substance-free housing is not talking about illicit drugs, becuase illicit drugs are not allowed to be in this country at all, even in the housing that allows substance use. At least not in civilian hands for recreational use.
But really, I must say, I've only lived in the midwest and the south, maybe the left coast is just that liberal.
