Drug Testing
(wgvu) - A three-year pilot program could lead to random
drug testing at all public high schools in Detroit.
The Detroit News reports Finney High School received a federal
grant Wednesday to start randomly testing some students for drug
use as early as this fall.
Kanzoni Asabigi, the deputy director of substance abuse
prevention at the Detroit Department of Health and Wellness
Promotion, says it could later be expanded to other high schools in
the Detroit Public Schools district.
The U.S. Department of Education and the White House's Office of
National Drug Control Policy says Detroit will get $165,300 the
first year, and similar amounts for two subsequent years. A total
of 20 states will get $5.8 million.
