Members of the Northeast Georgia Drug Task Force and UGA police searched the Creswell Hall room of 18-year-old Tatiana Andrea Galiano on Wednesday morning and found drugs, a scale and packaging for distributing drugs, according to police.

During the investigation, which was initiated by UGA police, drug task force members determined Galiano was selling pot and LSD to other students from her dorm room, Athens-Clarke police Lt. Mike Hunsinger said.

Galiano was in her room when police executed a search warrant, and she was arrested on charges of possession with intent to distribute a Schedule I drug, sale of marijuana and possession with intent to distribute marijuana, police said.

Officers also found smoking devices and pill containers, according to police.

Galiano was released from the Clarke County Jail on Thursday, after posting a $2,000 bond.

Other unrelated investigations are focusing on UGA students, but not necessarily for dealing drugs on campus, according to Hunsinger, commanding officer of the Northeast Georgia Drug Task Force.

Just trying to help her

Just trying to help her parents defray those high costs of going to college. Oh well. Sounds like she didn't make it through the first semester.

floridasun, I'll go even

floridasun, I'll go even further...drugs are found in just about every college, anywhere. I had a friend who went to Furman...drugs. Had another who went to Bob Jones University (is that still there?)...drugs. So, yeah, drugs are everywhere. I just find it interesting that this story made the Augusta Chronicle.

Here's another hot story

Here's another hot story right off the Morris News Service press: Man caught shoplifting at local Walmart in (insert your favorite city)...Come on, this happens every single day at every major university in the country. My guess is, someone at Morris dislikes this girl's parents. Why else would this get reported?

Well maybe it's the fact that

Well maybe it's the fact that we hear a lot about marijuana and cocaine but not so much about LSD anymore.....not to say it isn't out there. We just don't read about it in the paper. Never fails when I see the word LSD can't get the picture of tye-dyed t-shirts and hip-hugger blue jeans out of my head.

Your college years are pretty

Your college years are pretty much the only time in your life to take drugs like LSD; after graduation, if things work out, you’ll be too busy climbing the corporate ladder.

When you get to your late 30’s, if you have good health insurance, you’ll get back into drugs then: blood pressure medication and Lipitor.

And so it goes…
