Drug Testing an Entire College

Textbooks? Check. School sweatshirt? Check. Urine specimen cup? Only if you want to stay in school.

A drug-free demand greeted new students Wednesday at Linn State Technical College, a two-year school in central Missouri that has enacted what may be the most far-reaching drug testing policy at a public college or university in the country.

But the move by Linn State to enact widespread drug tests of the general student body appears unprecedented – and no small point of pride for administrators at the state’s only technical college.

Good idea.  And I’m surprised BYU doesn’t do it already.  But you know where they really need to enact this?  UNC!  Those people… Well, you know how Carolina is…
