This is insanely poor journalism. I understand the implications attempting to be made, but the “evidence” to support these supposed conclusions is laughable. 2 miles on a college campus is not close by any party standards. Cocaine was not the drug the five overdosed on. Most Indiana college kids keep the TV on to March Madness all month regardless of what activities they may or may not be participating in. Whatever point you’re trying to make, start with credible facts, reliable sources, and MAYBE you will be able to provide something the public can actually be informed with.
