Do you think there should be mandatory drug testing for all high school students? I do. If there was, then I think there would be a lot less drug usage in high schools. Students would be more afraid to use them if they don't know when they will be tested. I think by testing all high school students, the drug rate will go down.

Drugs are one reason violence happens. When you use a drug, it is killing your brain cells and you don't know what you are doing. If they tested the students with a drug test, then I think there would be a lot less violence going on.

If the students are doing drugs and don't know when they are going to be tested, maybe they will just stop doing them. I think they are scared to be caught, so if they don't know when they are going to be tested, they can't do them.

I think doing it a mandatory way is a good way, so they don't know when it's their turn.

When one person gets caught, then will be punished, so I think that will make the other users scared to use the drugs, knowing the consequence. They will probably go to jail, so when the other drug users find that out, they will be scared to do the drugs, because they might be tested.

If the mandatory drug testing does happen, then there will be better grades because the users won't be coming to school high. It would make most of the drug users not use drugs before school or after school, because they might be tested that day or the next day and they drug wouldn't have worn off yet. So the students would pay attention in class and get better...
