Drug testing coming to Detroit high school

My gut reaction to this is very negative. Id be interested in visiting a school where this is already happening and hear about the impact, positive and negative.

Finney High School in Detroit received a federal grant Wednesday to start randomly testing some of its students for drug use as early as this fall.

Kanzoni Asabigi, the deputy director of substance abuse prevention at the Detroit Department of Health and Wellness Promotion, said the three-year pilot program could lead to random drug testing at all public high schools in Detroit.

It’s also ironic that this pretty drastic action is being taken when, last I checked, underage drinking and drug use was a bigger problem in the suburbs.
