Drug use and it's consequences should be taught at schools. Some kids will choose to use drugs regardless of what they learn, but if it prevents one from using then it is a success. There are posters showing rotten faces due to spit tobacco use - perhaps they could show infections from sharing needles and even photos of people who overdosed. Maybe the thought of their own demise would scare them straight.
They tried with D.A.R.E. and it was a giant failure that backfired with more kids trying drugs than before. And mandatory drug testing of all students would be a violation of privacy. Just let them smoke their reefer. Who cares?
Most college students and high school students are buying drugs in these modern times of decadence. If you are requesting help from the government like with a student loan or scholarship or research grant or even a few free academy books the you need to take a mandatory drug test in order to reduce the number of people currently on drugs. The same for teachers if they work for the government or any other public school employees. If you are unemployed and currently on food stamps or any other government programs then all your children should get tested for drugs even if they are in private schools.
