Wake up people, it isn't the 70's anymore. You can't "just follow the haze" to find the dopers. Pot is found in every demographic including the jocks. No offense WHS kid, Windsor isn't exactly a metropolis, get into bigger high schools, you will fine more use, everywhere. I disagree with this policy, but what do you expect from the nosey leftists that want to make your decisions for you.

They tried to do this when I was in High School (20yrs ago). It could not pass because it's falls into "right of privacy". Students have right's; what they do out of school is not the schools business.
I do not support this non-sense.
So the persons "right to privacy" spercedes everyone elses rights? How about the right to learn without disruption? Or the safety of others? I think IF a student wants to get high and stay home, that is their right..BUT once this student chooses to get high and bring it to school and share his/her high with others, that is when they give up their right to privacy

Opinion from a WHS Kid wrote:
This is a total waste of money: Last semester our school WHS told us that they couldn't even afford tissues and copy paper yet they spent donation money on a useless flatscreen t.v. for the commons.(That no one watches). Now our WHS technology department is in need of and has been in need of new equipment for the auditorium...and like always that request will probably be ignored. The money that should be spent on the school for the students will instead be spent on drug testing athletes. And FYI...majority of the students who do drugs do not participate in sports. Drug use is a matter that should be dealt with outside of the school, just check our academic records...drugs really haven't taken a major toll on us in that category if at all; so whats the reasoning for all of this? I hope it's a good one.
These drug tests would and col be funded..I, as well as other parents in this community would hightly support funding this endeavor..I would also support making the kids whom test positive to reimberse the school for the test..It HAS taken its toll on academics in this school district..Lookat the failure rate among seniors...I personaqlly know one kid who is a pothead and a senior last year and will be a senior next year..What a waste...He has NO ambition at all..You are correct, these dopers dont do sports...I support 100% random drug testing on ALL students..That would be equal for ALL and no reason to involve the ACLU
