Smarter Student Drug Testing (PDF)
We support random student drug testing (RSDT) as part of a school’s comprehensive drug abuse prevention program because we know that RSDT is one of the best new ideas for preventing teenage drug use. We also know that many schools using drug testing are not taking full advantage of the potentials of this impressive biotechnology. In this report we focus on which drugs to test for including anabolic steroid testing. We also look at cheating on urine drug tests. These are important, practical questions that are not addressed in most of the advice available to schools about RSDT.
