They have been drug testing athletes at West for year years!!!! My children went there 5 years ago and they were testing them then!!! A very positive thing!!! But it should not just be the athletes that get tested!!!

I wouldn't have thought that ANYONE could test a minor (child under 18) for anything at any time.

It is starting in the fall around our football season and they can randomly test anyone and get them out of class

Drug test teachers , they are the responsible ones that lead the children. Most athletes aren't the ones that are drug abusers, however you might be shocked when you find out who is using drugs at the schools .

Lets drug test the parents. Hell lets just drug test everyone if you have a drivers license. Why not?

Okay . Let's just drug test all Americans . Might as well , I know I'll pass so it doesn't really affect me, however when students are getting tested and teachers are not being held to the same standards it seems unAmerican. Teachers should be tested as the students , responsibility in the school system should start at the top. Are we setting a good example by testing students ? Most every job does randoms , when we see an overflow of education majors in the next 4 years , will we wonder why ?

well west high school has been drug testing their athletes for an extremely long while. I believe we should test all students. it would only benefit us. We actually just had a state writing blitz on this subject.

It should take action soon!

Right any athlete-including Cheerleaders who are athletes by the way-will/can be drug tested anytime-the policy is being re-introduced and will be enforced in the 2012-2013 year.

We should start drug testing all Americans with drivers license. If they fail even for Alcohol we should revoke their license for no less than 3 months. Alcohol and drugs are killing this country and drastic actions must be taken. Who cares about peoples rights.....

Everyone please get in line for your testing. Remain calm and make sure you have your papers ready for the inspectors as you approach the table. This is for everyones' safety. All self responsibility is no longer valid. The state will regulate all child welfare desisions. Parents will no longer be responsible for ensuring their children are following laws. All students will be consired guilty and have to be tested to ensure they are in compliance. All adults will also be tested for drugs, alcohol, and sexually transmitted diseases. Any adult with an std will be castrated. That is for the public good. Also, all children and adults will be placed on a health program. Body mass index will be logged and the government will send you your new diet guidlines shortly. You will be repeat tested on a monthly basis to ensure you a remaining within guidlines and you diet will be adjusted accordingly.

Best regards,

Not the school's job to keep kids off of drugs. None of their business. The school system is to educate the students for 180 days. It's not rehab.

I think they ought to test the kids. The problem is it's never random and druggies know if they quit using pills/coke/meth for about four days, they'll test clean.
It needs to be a surprise and then a couple of weeks after that, hit them again with a surprise test. THAT'S the way you catch the druggies. I'm going to be talking with the school board next week about this and pushing for action.
Get ready little pillheads you gonna do a lot of community service and hopefully be in trouble with your parents, if they aren't as worthless as you.
This is going to get us some really good discussions on here soon, as dozens of druggie kids are exposed.

盬ow you guy really took this and ran with it lol.. ill be the first to say my opinion doesn't matter and i didn't even go to a morristown high school but I've heard you guys do tons to prevent drugs from getting in the schools. i also heard u still have a big drug problem but i know plenty of other school that do as well.

盉ut the real question is these drug tests.盰ou guys seam to have made this an all or nothing debate ie. drug test no one or test everyone.盉ut i don't think eithers the answer.

盕irst of all you would need a state law for any type of testing everyone plan. STUDENTS STILL HAVE RIGHTS PEOPLE, EVEN MINORS.盩hat said students who play sports or do any thing that reps the school in public are fair game.北盩hese aren't my opinions btw there the supreme courts.

盕inally i have some words for both sides of this argument
盰ou guys shouting to test everyone have the students best interest at heart but your blind.盰ou guys completely underestimate high schoolers and there need to be rebellious.盰our idea sounds great but if even have the students at west or any high school was caught you'd lose half the school.. no pun intended.
do these kids need a wake up call yes but not this way. I've seen ro tolerence first hand and was the wake up call in my life but i have friends who didn't have the family and friends and money to help like i did. the system didn't work for them
北SO be careful what you wish for do-gooders
