This is good.

Get teens used to the idea that government is the nanny and can intrude into your privacy at any time because it is "good for you."

Then they won't question the Patriot Act or the NSA or the hollow shell that was our Constitution. They"ll understand that Big Brother loves them and only wants the best for them.

The article did not specify who was doing the testing and this should concern everyone. Any student tested for drugs should be at the approval of the parents and by private physicians who report the finding to parents only.

A childs medical condition is none of the schools business. If a student is required for drug testing which I encourage for all students entering high school and on a yearly basis and filed with schools records as part of voluntary vaccination records pass or fail information. If parents and student don't want the schools to reveal drug testing records then that can be cause not to allow student participation in extracurricular activities.

As a parent I would have welcomed mandatory private drug testing of students in high school, its the most vulnerable years of a childs life to get hooked on drugs and gives parents a heads up to care for and educate their children against drug use if they had the knowledge they are users.
