Like it or not, drugs have been finding, and always will find their way into our nation's public schools. There is a gigantic market for these teenagers to get into drugs ranging from alcohol (most popular) to cigarettes, dip, and marijuana. At my school, there is even an epidemic of cocaine coming down from a dealer in Atlanta, GA. How can we possibly stop the drug trade and use in the school system without invading the rights of the students/parents? I believe that to stop the drug trade in the U.S., we must first stop it in the schools, because that is where the majority of users get hooked. I am not saying alcohol is bad, but the secondhand drugs such as cigarettes and marijuana, and the harder drugs such as cocaine need to controlled more heavily, without taking the rights of the citizens of our nation.
