Washington Courts Reject Random Student Drug Tests

Item: Wash. court: random drug testing unconstitutional/Rachel La Corte, Associated Press

More Info: The Washington state Supreme Court ruled today that random drug testing of student athletes is unconstitutional, finding that each has “a genuine and fundamental privacy interest in controlling his or her own bodily functions.” The court ruled unanimously in favor of some parents and students in the lower Columbia River town of Cathlamet who were fighting the tiny Wahkiakum School District’s policy of random urine tests of middle school and high school student athletes.

Question: What do you think of the unanimous Supreme Court ruling?
