There is a study that shows that schools that do drug testing have the same rates of drug use among students as schools that don't. Big surprise. I wonder when the actual facts about DARE will come to the attention of the general public.

2) Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of reinous and herbal cannabis.

3) You have dope and tobacco, but no papers, discuss how you might make a spliff.

How do they find out if students are using drugs if they don't test them?

They find out through anonymous surveys.

Interestingly, no school tests all students. They test athletes, top scholars, suspected users, other smaller groups. They feel they can make the case that it's okay to invade these students' privacy for a "greater cause" (also because students have no great "expectation of privacy"). But so far schools have not branched out to test the entire school population on a regular basis. I think mostly because it's very expensive.

Re:
When you think about it it's terrible that surveys and tests are such a part of everyday life.
