Kansas City: Rockhurst High School will test all students for drugs
Program is believed to be first in KC area. Hair samples will detect drug use and evidence of binge drinking.
Beginning in the fall of 2013, every student at Rockhurst High School will be tested at least once a year for drug and alcohol use.
“It’s a huge shift,” Principal Greg Harkness said Thursday. It’s an unprecedented step among Kansas City area schools.
“But it’s one we need to do,” he said.
Not because the private Jesuit school has any extraordinary drug and alcohol abuse problems, Harkness said.
But because the school wants to help its students take a stand against illegal substances, and aid those at risk of abuse.

I think it's GREAT. ...............................................AS LONG AS THEY DON'T HAVE TO GIVE UP THEIR GUNS.
