yes i do agree on testing all school employes for drugs.This should have been done a long time ago.If there is nothing to hide then why are so many people aginst it.I would hate to say i quit my job because of a drug test.I guess who you are and where you live doesnt work any more.Im glad.

I disagree. Drug tests cost money and there is business in that that tax payers have to pay for and they would be completely useless in catching hard drug users so all that you would do is put marijuana smokers out of work that are responsible working adults. Marijuana isn't even as much threat as alcohol and I don't want my tax money to go toward the useless attempt to catch hard users.

I forgot to add that its useless because hard drugs are out of your system in 3 days. Drug testing at work places have proven that real drug users can get work easier than pot smokers. Its a complete failure
