    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.
