    I am 19 years old and in college living in a dorm. I had a bit of alcohol zipped in a backpack behind my dresser. During the thanksgiving break, a room search was done to make sure everything was in order and all the trash was taken out and all that (this was for everyone). When i got back, i found my backpack open on the floor and the alcolhol taken out. Then i got an email saying that i was caught with this and all that. Is this ok for them to go into my backpack and snoop around like this. Dont they have to have a reason of suspicion that i had alcohol in the bag or in my room for them to go into my personal belongings??

  • What are some cities in Mexico with good public transportation and no drug cartel?

    Best answer: Guadalajara is a good suggestion, or any of the colonial towns like Puebla, Guanajuato, or Zacatecas. The drug cartels don't operate in most of Mexico, because the people there aren't the ones who use drugs. The drugs are sold to people from the US- so the drug cartels mostly operate along the border.

  • How to stay safe while traveling abroad?

    Normally at home I have pepper spray on my keychain. I never had to use it but my college campus had some violent incidents so it was given as precaution. Of course I take precautions (not going out late at night alone, being cautious of my surroundings, etc) but I plan on traveling a lot in the next few months to different countries in Europe and Africa. You can’t bring pepper spray in your carry on, is there any sort of self defense item that is allowed in carryons on planes? Clearly things like tasers, knives, etc aren’t allowed but I’m so used to having my mace with me at home, I would feel more comfortable as a woman traveling in a new environment if I could have something that can help defend if needed.
