The Strangest Ways Kids Get Drunk & High

I hate to pull a "kids these days, they're so crazy," because I've always hated hearing people say things like that. But holy sh*t, kids these days, they're crazy!

Friday Faves: 25 Things to Do Before You Turn 25

College moves fast. One second you're a freshman wandering around the campus with a lanyard and the next second you're crossing the stage and collecting a diploma.

3 Ways to Focus Without Taking Adderall

It's pretty evident that Adderall and other prescription ADD and ADHD medications are everywhere on college campuses. Whether you're getting it via script from your health center, the frat guy who thinks he's a dealer, or your best friend, these drugs are abused all over the country.

True or False: College Stereotypes

Over the years, college kids have developed a universal stereotype as sex-crazed alcoholic party monsters. And while that may be true for some of our classmates, it's a little bit off to say that this is all you can expect from campus populations. Or is it?

Alcohol and Drug Use Rises: Who’s to Blame?

45% of high school students don’t see a “great risk” in heavy drinking. And 68% of those high school students have had their first drink by age 14. Additionally, since 2008 the use of marijuana is up from 32% to 39% and the use of ecstasy is up from 4% to 6%.

How is Charlie Sheen Still Working?

It's no secret that Charlie Sheen is one of Hollywood's bad boys. And by "bad boys" I mean "has a serious drug problem." He's been in and out of the news for years for his addiction to drugs and the things (and prostitutes) he does while on them. Charlie clearly needs help... and a lot of it. So I have to wonder how and why CBS is sitting idly by as story after horrific story surfaces about their golden child.

Everything You’ve Ever Wanted to Know About Salvia

On Friday, pictures of Miley Cyrus hitting a bong circulated the Internet and quickly became the biggest news of 2010. (Seriously, even my mother called to tell me she saw "Miley Cyrus inhaling from a pipe on my AOL.") No one here in CollegeCandy Headquarters was all that surprised - she is a Disney star, after all.

Celebrities That Deserve a Cameo More Than Mel Gibson

I was so excited for the Hangover 2 to come out next year. So excited. Like already have my tickets, waiting in line starting now excited. And then news broke that a certain celebrity was going to be making a cameo in the sequel, much like Mike Tyson did in the original. Except this celebrity isn’t a boxing legend with a drug problem. It’s a middle-aged white guy with rage issues. Mel Gibson.

LiLo Going to Jail?!

Well, Lindsay Lohan is at it again… or is she? Following her DUI in August 2007, Lohan was ordered to attend alcohol education classes weekly. Now, in violation of her probation, it is reported that she has been attending every 21 days instead. A court hearing set for May 20 will determine if she will have to serve jail time because of the violation. The sad part is: this time, she didn’t actually do anything.

Everything I Know I Learned in 2009

Is it just me, or does it seem like almost every celebrity out there had some giant scandal in 2009? I feel like I spent at least 3/4 of the year crouched in front of the TV or refreshing my news on the internet just to keep up. From Michael Jackson's shocking death, to cheating husbands, to a family sending a silver balloon in the air and forcing their family to lie just to get on TV, the scandals have gone from serious and sad to very WTF worthy.

I’m Torn: Drugs

Before anyone calls the police and I wind up on the next episode of Cops, let me clarify. When I say "drugs" I mean marijuana/weed/pot/green/reefer/hemp/buddha/herbage, or whatever else you want to call it. Lots of my friends have touted the effects of weed, and some even smoke it every day as a way to relax from a hard day of boring classes and crazy professors. I've never tried it, but lately I've wondered why not.

Celebretard Showdown: Mischa Barton vs. Tara Reid

There are a lot of celebrities out there that simply disappear, whether it be voluntarily or due to lack of talent/rehab/Bermuda triangle. There are a couple that have massive amounts of issues, yet refuse to disappear. In fact, they seem to pop up everywhere, strutting around uninvited on every red carpet.
