Student Drug Testing – not the same as TB tests

A bill in California has bi-partisan support and would ban universal random drug testing of students, and only allow drug testing if administrators have “reasonable suspicions.” A companion bill would allow for testing of athletes specifically for performance enhancing drugs.
Naturally, this reasonable approach doesn’t sit well with the Drug Czar’s office, which is trying to boost the income of testing companies, so they sent their resident quack Andrea Barthwell, who testified that universal random drug testing of students was like testing for tuberculosis, and urged testing all students to “stop the spread.”
I hear there’s an epidemic of lying in government. We’d better institute random lie detector tests to stop the spread.
