COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – An investigation by The Gazette in Colorado Springs is exposing a dangerous culture of drugs, cheating and sexual assault by cadets at the Air Force Academy.

Most of the cadets under scrutiny played football for Air Force. The Academy superintendent is calling for an investigation into the athletic department.

Documents reveal startling details about parties where cadets smoked synthetic marijuana, drank themselves sick, and may have used date rape drugs to sexually assault women.

In a statement, Academy officials say several cadets have already been kicked out and prosecuted.
