Students who wanted to learn more about the controversy surrounding the legalization of marijuana attended a debate hosted by the Young Americans for Liberty April 1 in the Alice Haynes Room. There were three debaters at the event, Detective Tim Meacham of the University of Richmond Police Department -- although he was not representing the viewpoint of the URPD -- along with Thad Williamson and Jessica Flanigan, who are both professors in the Jepson School of Leadership. Flanigan said all drugs should be legal, and people should be able to buy heroin at Walgreens, if they are so inclined.

It only took about five minutes to crack 70 percent of University of Richmond students' passwords in a test last year, which did not associate the passwords with students' NetIDs, security administrator Anthony Head said. Many students are just now realizing that they need to update their passwords to conform to new security restrictions for their NetID accounts to access their gmail and other campus network services. The process of changing password lengths began last year, Head said, with the faculty and staff resetting their passwords near the end of the year.
