How much money are you willing to invest in these drug tests? I would rather test the high risk kids who are willing to take anything for a college scholarship regardless of health risks than a chess club smoker. How many high school choir members are dying of heart attacks on the auditorium floor?

Quoting EireLass:

Choir students don't smoke MJ?

Quoting kidlover2:

Because students who play sports are more likely to take steroids and other performance enhancing drugs. Choir students... Not so much.

Quoting EireLass:

Choir members could gain easy access to medications as well.....hence my question: Why sports and not choir?

Quoting Queen_Bree:

Maybe because a person who is on drugs could gain easy access to medications which could be used or sold. And could put lives at risk if they are under the influence. Most health care majors require and internship of some sort where live people are in their care.

i had to for choir in high school. i thought that was a little stupid. now if they are on a sports team sure. AS for college sports teams and medical majors

I'm not willing to invest anything in the testing. I'm against drug testing. How many baseball players in high school have died of heart attacks? How many girls soccer players have died of heart attacks? How about the archery team? Cheerleaders?

I agree. I don't want to drug test anyone. That's a private company's job to do.

Your confusing. Your previous posts appear to say you think certain groups of students should be tested as you feel they are at a higher risk. Now you don't want to drug test anyone. ???

You said why sports and not choir. I was giving you a reason why. I don't favor drug testing anyone.

Yes, I think they should especially if they are active in any after school activiities including sports. If they are showing signs in school that they are under some type of chemical influence. The school should bring it up to the parents attention, but if the parent refuses to get their child help. They school should have the right to use other means to find out if the student is using drugs.

Our choir has a ton of drinkers. More than in football probably. Everyone in choir, clubs and sports can be randomly tested for alcohol or drugs.

I would like to know if my kids were doing drugs.... so yes but I feel like as a parent you can not allow it for your own child... I think it should be a choice to opt out.....
