    What's that Lor? The story was just for information purposes. Am considering keeping this thread more updated but I don't know how many actually view the archives without responding for privacy reasons or if people come and see nothing so leave.

    Houghchrist - I fit were me, if at all possible, I would find another school as a mandatory U/A to go to school is to outragous to me. Athletes, Maybe, although I doubt they test for steroids. To me this is a invasion of my privacy and it is unprintable what I would tell them. Good luck, hope the Pain Monster is not being too bad - Take care.

    I wouldn't test the entire body--I'd just test their brains!!!!!!!!!!

    what utter nonsense! guess they have too much money to spare in that school??don't misunderstand me-I'm certainly not advocating kids to smoke pot.

    just realized how old this thread is. think parent's can buy a home testing kit nowadays right?

    You know Alex44, some things are just not worth getting upset over. When I started with my Pain Management Dr. I signed a contract. I read all the rules and regs. so it wasn't news to me.

    My problem with the drug test is the cost!! I had one done a couple of months ago. I got a statement from the hospital, where they have thier blood and urine checked.

    Well, I almost fainted when I saw the statement was for over 700.00 $. I thought the last time I did the urine test done it was almost 600.00$$. I don't know at the moment who I need to talk to about it, but I will find out .

    My family Dr. does my complete blood panel once about every 3 months. they check for everything I can think of and it has NEVER been close to the test my PM does.

    So, I didn't read the artical but I suppose I should. If it's a private school I would think they have a right to do what ever they want to do. I may be wrong about that, things change so fast I can not keep up with it.

    So Alex, I'm not trying to pick a fight, just wanted to get that little tidbit off my mind! Our health care system is in a horrible mess and I see no end in sight.

    I hope you are feeling better, Alex.

    JO6 thank you for your reply and no, I take no offense to your opinion. I have NO problem with Being tested for pain management. What I don't understand is why they give you an instant read cup ($10-20 Dollars and then feel the need to send it out for a Gas Chromagraphy test at $800.- a pop. I am on medicaid and this much money could help a lot of people. I am fortunate that my plan covers this, they TRIED to bill me and I raised heck and I have gotten no furter bills since. sae with the schools. Yes, it is important for our kids to be drug free, but at what cost? Our schools are failing now - think of the cost involved with testing the whole student body ( no pun intended) and how that money could be used to further their education. all this teaches them is to bow to authority because they say so. I can see it for extracurricular sports, activities,etc, Sort of, but Kids and adults are systemically being stripped of our rights. How many people can tell me what the 1st.,2nd. 4th. 5th. and 14th amendments are in the bill of rights - Any Takers? Hope YOU are doing well Jo6 - Happy Holidays
