So it's the private school's prerogative to enforce criminal laws now? Would you be ok with the school requiring every student to keep a camera in their car to make sure the student never broke traffic laws?

It's a private school and they CAN do it, but its retarded. This country is mindlessly immature when it comes to what people do in their private time.

I'll assume, that you picked up that little statistic out of high times. The truth is that the majority of kids don't touch that poison, and they don't need to be intermingling with pot-smokers and dope-peddlers.


It's more like 40% of highschool kids according to the Journal of Addiction Medicine.

I'm sure the number goes up in college.

So you're right. It's not a majority. It's a very large minority. So we'll just put half of our kids in jail.



So...gonna stop trolling?

Great troll

My high school did random D&A piss tests and if they had reasonable suspicion, they would fork out the money to do a folicle test. I still drank and partied on the weekends but made the decision that getting kicked out of school for drugs wasn't in my best interests. Private schools can do whatever they want and parents/students know the consequences of breaking the code of conduct or whatever. If they don't like it, then they don't have to enroll at that institution.
I'm all for the legalization of weed btw.

They can go back years if your hair is long enough but the standard test is 1-1/2 inches of hair to go back three months.


Glad I don't have long hair.You could probably smoke my hair and catch a buzz.

I went to a high school that did this and I was drug tested once. They didn't do ALL, of the students. It was just random. And it only happened once to me.

Drug testing by hair is extremely expensive. Not sure why they would do it that way

It could just be a threat to scare some of the students.

Yeah, I think that's enough, I should probably do some work. But drug testing high school kids IS pretty retarded.

Testing by cutting hair lends itself to less accusations of sexual misconduct?

I remember reading that if you purposefully cut down on your hair they treat it the same as refusing to pee in a cup for a drug test.

A good kid?

you said yourself he routinely broke the law, simply being smart doesn't make someone a good kid.

Good thing they never tested for alcohol use in your school, right fin?


They did at school events with a breathalyzer, I didn't drink then because I played sports.

Nice police state. Next you'll be kicked out because your friend was snorting his ritalin and you didn't tell on him.

I love how our law is so infallible. It's for idiots, let be honest. Keep the idiots in line and let everyone else do what they want. Who follows these laws anyway?

ETA: It's a private matter, not a public one. If you think your kid is using drugs then be a parent and test them. Don't shirk off resposibility to the school.



I have no problem being responsible for my kids, but I can't enforce testing by other parents so I'll let the school take care of that.

It's BS that they make all kids do this but I wouldn't mind if they tested my kid when he gets to HS

If you shave ALL your hair it's treated that way. They can take a sample from any hair as long as it's long enough.

We drug test (randomly) any kid that takes part in extra curricular activities.

I think it violates privacy rights and punishes kids who do more than just attend school. I understand the point, just find it hard to make a kid who is trying to better themselves with extra participation miss games/seasons/high school "careers" because at 15 they wanted to smoke a little pot.

Either way when the testers show, it is funny to watch kids scramble as text messaging and social media allows the information that drug tests are happening spreads like wild fire.

Our kids just pee in a cup. No hair testing.

re: Kansas City high school will randomly drug test all their students -hair samples


They did this my senior year in HS for any one in a sport or extra curricular

It was dumb, if you didnt have enough hair then they took off some of your leg/arm hair if possible.

I remember some girls being physically upset because they had to cut their hair

It was dimb because i knew guys that smoked that morning and nothing happened to them. And its very expensive
