Drug Testing...is it really all it's cracked up to be? Personally, It's a mixed bag. One one hand it does help some people abstain from drugs. On the other hand, most people who do drugs work . Consequently, either the testing is flawed or they are really good at masking the effects of the test. In addition, I think drug testing actually drives some people to switch from marijuana (3 weeks in your system) to dangerous and highly addictive drugs like cocaine and heroin which will flush out of your system in a few days. In addition, young people have turned to GHB which is not only cheaper than getting drunk it will not give you a hangover and is impossible to drug test. So for ever action we take there is a reaction that is taken by those who are determined to get trashed. 

Consequently my read on the situation would be to have drug testing where odd behavioral activity  dictates  and  when accidents occur.  For students though, I'd recommend it highly. Kids need guidance in order to avoid the drug laden minefields of youth. This would help (drug testing) steer them clear of the minefields.
