According to a health assessment at the University of Texas, students are not as drug-loving as they think they are, the Daily Texan reports. The report says that 12.8 percent of students polled had actually used marijuana in the past 30 days, while students predicted 64.8 percent. Similarly, only 1 percent of students polled reported daily pot use, compared with a perceived 16.5 percent.
