Because they're children away from home for the first time surrounded by lots of other equally foolish young people.

Out of interest, is it your opinion that anyone who smokes weed is a fool?

Because a lot of them think it should be legal, they meet more like minded people and it's easier to get. Also the smell is pretty obvious so you can't exactly go back to your parents house smelling like it.

Well I suppose just because they think it's fun.
I don't really think that they do it because they're stupid, which seems to be the opinion of a few so far. I've never personally tried it, since it's illegal so I don't know if I could trust any source that it comes from and I don't really have the money for it.
But Cannabis is far less likely to kill you or cause you long term problems than drinking alcohol.
If you smoke too much of it, you can get really anxious, but that eventually passes and you can't become physically dependent on it. 24 hours after using it your cognitive functioning will be pretty much as the same as it was before, and that's after using an excessive amount.
Sometimes if a person has a underlying psychological condition cannabis could trigger it, so it definitely is not for everyone, especially if there's a history of mental illness in the family.
It can be abused, but many legal substances can be abused with much more serious consequences. It's just something else that needs to be used responsibly.

I think the interesting question is why cannabis, not another drug. Different social groups outside university tend to different drugs, but weed is pretty common at uni as the drug of choice. I guess one factor might be that there's a lot of it around, so I'm guessing it's cheaper (supply and demand etc)? Also it's not the most extreme drug effects wise, and most students probably want a gentle-moderate high rather than a full blown psychedelic experience when they're working the next day.

disclaimer: I don't take drugs, but have experience of drug taking in my social circle

have had it many times before but only on a social basis and even then its passing it around with mates. tbh you sort of grow out of it in the end (well i did). would much rather a cigarette and few beers then cannabis tbh

It is cheap, easy to use and cures boredom. Also it is great fun.
