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...
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.
