What You Need To Know About Digital Drugs In Lebanon

Posted By :

The last time I heard about “digital drugs” was a couple of years ago when they decided to ban them in Dubai If I am not mistaken. I don’t know why the phenomenon just got to Lebanon, or at least the Lebanese media just found out about it, but I second Gino that you have to be stupid to buy this stuff. Moreover, I am not sure how the Lebanese authorities are planning to ban this thing as it’s impossible to do.

Anyway, if you’d like to waste your precious time reading about these drugs that were a hot topic 3-4 years ago, here’s a couple of links I recommend:

USJ Suspends Student Elections: All Universities Should Do The Same In Lebanon

Posted By :

Saint Joseph University issued a statement earlier today and stated student elections will be suspended for the current academic year. The decision came after NDU suspended its elections following the quarrel that took place between Lebanese Forces and Free Patriotic Movement students on Wednesday.

I think all universities should do the same and take some time to re-asses the whole election process and reformulate it in a way that keeps politics away and doesn’t allow politically affiliated candidates from running as independents and deceiving students. Student elections should be 100% academic. Until they figure out a way to do so, elections shouldn’t take place.

I am sure every Lebanese who traveled to Ayia Napa has been to Senior Frog’s. It’s the best place to kick off the party there as it’s always crowded and there’s always live entertainment. Well guess what? Senior Frog’s is coming to Concrete 1994 in Sin el Fil, Beirut for two nights on November 21 and 22.

Regular entrance tickets are at 45$ and 55$ (65$ at the door) and VIP tickets are at 100$.
