The problem is that parents do not do anything. I see no reason to not test for drugs, considering how much use they have.

IR15HEarth. Where I live "recreational" drugs are far more common place than performace enhancing drugs, and, the majority of people that take these drugs are not in sports teams. I guess things are different in America.

From what I understand, high school sports (particularily American Football) are taken far more seriously in the States.

Really though, drug testing in highschools is a misallocation of resources, IMHO.

JeffroGreat, more surveillance. :rolleyes:

Mighty hypocritical of Bush considering he did cocaine during his youth, don't you think? And aren't the republican ideals for less government intrusion? I really don't like where this country is going to be headed in a couple of years...

No...

He made a mistake, he has publicly admitted it and said it was a mistake. If you smoked reffer in high school, does that mean your kid should be able to do it? Some things are worse than being a hypocrite, and sitting back and letting someone destroy himself is one of them.

My reaction? Good, I'm honestly glad to here it. Even in the rather well-off northern suburbs you can smell pot in the bathrooms, makes me pissed as hell.

Can you tell that I hate stoners?

IRI5H and Eon, they definatly are. I had to take at least half a dozen steriod tests during my senior year alone. We take it very seriously here.

But sports teams are an excellent place to start. While only a small fraction of the general population is addicted to drugs - a significantly larger proportion of people in sports teams use drugs of some sort. Anyone who has taken algebra understands this concept.;)
