"She says membership in the Religious Society of Friends requires her son to be truthful and obey society's laws."
Then he should obey the RULE that says he much submit to random drug testing. If he is a "good" Quaker than he has nothing to fear. Just because ones religion says "you must be good" dose not mean that you WILL be good.

Oh give me a break! I know that Quaker and Amish are not exactly the same, but, based on the same idea here, people think because of the religious beliefs that they are above our problems. They are not. I personaly know. I have had friends in that community that I met in my addiction days. Im in recovery now and I know one that is also. He was Old Order Mennonite, well, supposed to be lol. They are human too, and for any number of reasons turn too alcohol and drugs.Physical and sexual abuse will turn any kid to drugs and testing is a great thing because it may save the a childs life and point to the real problems. Drugs are usually a cover up to hide something. Even ,well especially religious people, tend to have alot to hide! what do I know? I am just someone in recovery.
