Should middle school students be drug tested?

Do you believe schools should test their students for drugs?

If so, at what age should the testing begin?

Is middle school too young?

For what reason? If they're just going to be punished then probably not. If the goal is to help kids who may be in trouble then maybe, but not just an across the board screen of everyone. I too would have failed a drug test in middle school.

If you are talking about band spots 4h and things like that.  Then yes they should have to take the drug test.

Keep them on track for high school.

Keep them away from drugs that could ruin their chances down the road of enlisting in college or getting a job.

Teaching repercussions of drug use would be perfect in schools.
