I've got a vague feeling that drug testing in schools is one of those policies the government reannounce every couple of years to create some headlines so I'm inclined to think this is another Home Office gimmick.

i can tell you in all seriousness that of the druggies in scholl , only mthe silliest admit it in survey's, this figure, i would content, could be tripled.

It should be the parents responsibility, but the government doesn't allow the parents to apply any sanctions to their own children. So I think it is the governments fault. Unfortunately this will be used for more government interference, rather than the less that is really needed.

David, someone doesn't agree with your views on drugs . . .

My own belief is that the war on drugs has been lost and cannot be won. More creative solutions are required than simply saying harsher punishments and zero tolerance.

Richard,
You're sounding too defeatist! Each of us has the power to win our own personal battles against addictions and temptations and hence the war can be won if the spiritual strength of the nation is revived.

I just think that there are plenty of people out there who are not interested in the slightest in winning their own personal battles against addictions and temptations.

They have decided, rightly or wrongly, to take drugs as a lifestyle choice and the prospect of imprisonment or other punishment will not dissuade them from this.
