Nevada has plenty of action, but that doesn't mean we can't care about folks elsewhere. :-)

We usually are able to settle things amoung outselves around here, no need for the ACLU. Haven't seen much they were for that I wasn't against and vica-versa. There are some exceptions but not many.

Just my thoughts.

Haven't fully made up my mind on this drug testing thing. Is having a road check by the law illegal?? They do this regularly and are able to write tickets for things that are wrong. May be we should have hall checks and stop everyone on a hall periodicly.

If my child were taking drugs I would want every means possible used to stop them and those who were supplying them.

Rights are debatable-It wouldn't hurt my feelings if several South American drug lords were to walk out of their houses to find they had a bad case of lead poisioning waiting. This would probable violate their rights.

Oh I see. The "mission", one would think, would be very clear. I shouldn't have to lay it out for you. Just think about it for a minute or two. If you can't figure it out, then our "mission" is not asking your help or opinion.

BUT, your opinion is something you have every right to share. :-)

When it comes to teenagers "w/o cause" doesn't apply. The fact they are a teenager is good enough cause.
I support drug testing in high school, especially with the meth problems in the mountains.
If you knew the stats on teenage drug use you might would agree...Yes, even some of your kids have experimented with drugs or use them, and you don't know it! Do I hear denial in the audience?

You seem to have little purpose here, other than "stirring"

When posters try to reachout and find what your goals are, you become evasive and vague.

I wish you well in what ever it is you are trying to achieve, if you would only tell us what that is.

I dont exactly know what your objective is, but let's see how this compares:

1.) Do you have teenagers? If yes, then have you had each one drug tested? If the answer is, No, you have no idea, period!

2.) If you have teenagers, do you keep open ears and a quiet mouth to listen to what they are REALLY telling you instead of the words, you here in syllables? If you don't have teenagers, then you have no idea.

3.) IF they legalized this "drug testing" in our schools, what are they going to do? Send them home? Pay for their "substance abuse program" or send a search warrant out for the home? What will this drug testing say to our youth?

My opinion, and yes, I know what they say about opinions, but for one thing I am NOT a parent who is in denial. Luckily, I've not had to deal with hard core drugs with my kids, and truthfully, I am told more by THEM that I often times want to hear. But I am a mother who listens to my kids, not the words, but WHAT THEY ARE MEANING IN EACH WORD. I was a teenager in the 80's. Free spirited teenager. Nothing will happen to me...kind of teenager. I seen my best friends turn to drugs, I watched their lives go down the drain. I seen their appearance often times look almost grotesque from all the 'using and abusing' but there was one thing I KNEW beyond a shadow of a doubt, I knew I had a family that loved me REGARDLESS of what I done. Even proved that in the Spring of '85, I had to tell my parents I was going to be a mother. I was only 15. Was I raised right? Yes sir/ma'm, Went to church faithfully, dated the preacher's son. This month the "Preacher's Son" and I will be married 21 years with a 20, 17, 16 year old children. Yeah life was tough. But it made US tough! Do I regret my "choices"? No! Because, looking back, I see a "borderline" wild child who would of probably ended up with someone who wasnt as good to me as my husband is today. I looked in the "wrong" directions back then. I liked the wild side, that was my attraction. Devasting to a mother and dad who could lay whatever I wanted at my feet, I was an only child. At 16 years old, I went into "Adult mode", stayed in school, worked nights full time, and was married.

Yeah, Sorry, I drifted off subject there, but there's a few things I believe in, One is communication begins at home. Sex Ed should START at home between the child and the parents. We let the gov't "throw" free birth control to our kids and say "Hey...Do it! But use protection!" Now the gov't is going to say, "Ok, take the drugs, we'll test you during school hours, on school grounds, kick you out of school. But we'll send you to a rehab and you can come back and We'll do it all over again!"

People, DON"T LET THE GOV'T RAISE YOUR KIDS! IT'S NOT WHAT THE GOV'T CAN DO FOR YOU OR YOUR KIDS, IT'S ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR KIDS! WHY CAN'T PARENTS, SCHOOLS, ETC. GET THAT IN THEIR HEADS? I know because we are raising a generation from a generation that government took over into the lives in school. From prayer being taken out of the school, to keeping every one who wouldnt work on welfare. (nothing against welfare if you need it...)

I AM the parent. Those kids are MINE. Until they reach the age of 18, I AM responsible for them. I don't want to stand on the sidelines of their education and be the school or gov't's cheerleader for "aid'ing to my children"...Teach them their education, treat them with respect, DISCIPLINE THEM LIKE IT USED TO BE IN SCHOOL, but keep the "Testing" and the "LABELING" on paper to be sent home for the parent to do. Not the school officials.

And as far as that "principal stuff" goes? If that is the least of our worries as parents of who is in our school system. We have got it made! An "EMAIL" is not going to corrupt my high schoolers! It wasn't sent to the kids but to adults. Yeah on school time. But let's back up and ask this...What have you or whoever done on company time that cost your company or the boss was paying you to do that wasn't in your job description?

I usually dont post under such topics as these. Too political for me to argue. I do however have very strong opinions about these kind of topics which i usually keep to myself. With all that said, Lady you posted well. I couldnt have said it any better. Don't let the government raise your kids. Remember when they took paddling out of school and the bible? What happened then? Chaos. Thats what. Kids started acting any ole way they wanted with the attitude that you cant whoop me. I'll call the cops or DFACS if you whoop me. I think the Dare program does a fine job teaching our kids about the dangers of drugs and drinking. My kid knows way more than I thought. But drug testing--- I dont think so.
