So are they testing for PED's too? I like this idea, but I would love to
see it statewide, and to add on the test for PED's. I would support a test
preseason for PED's. As bad as recreational drugs are, I believe that to an
athlete who wants to be more competitive, earn a scholarship and win awards,
they are more likely to try PED's. They are the drugs I would be more
concerned about with athletes. It's been known for years that some programs
turn a blind eye to students usings PED's in football. A testing program
would help get rid of most of those cheaters.
Despite going down the slippery slope of giving up our civil liberties and
privacy, how much will this program cost? I mean we have teachers getting
paltry raises, if anything, and class sizes over 40 in our secondary schools. I
think there are more pressing manners. If parents and others open up their
eyes, they don't need to a drug test to find out what they need to know...
