Responsible Action Exemption (Medical Amnesty)

“I don’t want me or my friend to get in any trouble, but she is really wasted and needs help.  What should I do?”

Get help! At the University of Mississippi, students who act responsibly by getting help for a friend who is dangerously intoxicated will not be found in violation of University alcohol or drug policies.  This pertains to all students who seek help for their friends and all students who receive help.

If you are on campus and have an emergency, do the right thing and call our University Police Department at 662-915-7234 or dial 911 from anywhere.  Your friend is worth it.
