Drug Free Zone
The State of New Hampshire has adopted a "Drug Free Zone" law (NH RSA 193-B), which is applicable to both public and private schools including Phillips Exeter Academy.
Under the State of New Hampshire law, any person who manufactures, sells, prescribes, administers, dispenses or possesses with the intent to sell, dispense or compound any controlled drug or its analog, in a "Drug Free Zone" will be subject to strict mandatory penalties, including imprisonment and fines. Such activity also violates the rules of Phillips Exeter Academy and will be treated as a major offense subjecting any student to possible dismissal from the Academy.
A "Drug Free Zone" is defined as an area inclusive of property used for public and private school purposes and within 1,000 feet of such property and within or immediately adjacent to school buses.
Consistent with the Memorandum of Understanding between Phillips Exeter Academy and the Exeter Police Department, the police will be notified immediately of any illegal sale or possession of a controlled drug.
