School Drug Testing

First, it was student athletes. Now, the Supreme Court has ruled that other high school students may be subjected to random drug tests.

The ruling now covers students who join any competitive after-school activity. The court says it's a reasonably effective means of fighting drug use. A former Oklahoma high school honor student had challenged the drug testing policy.

Her lawyer says all the experts say such drug testing is counter-productive. The experts say the best way to keep kids off drugs is to get them in after school activities.
