With drug testing amongst students increasing in popularity, many high schools have now implemented varying policies about drug and substance use and abuse. Schools adopting drug testing systems initiate policies that contain some sort of drug testing program for students involved in extracurricular activities. Most of these systems include a punishment plan to follow those students whose drug tests come back positive, in attempt to aid in the rehabilitation process. The controversy concerning high school student drug testing continues to increase with educated arguments on both sides of the topic. Specific aspects of drug testing are disagreed upon, such as which students are tested, how often tests are done, and the disciplinary action taken,
Mandatory drug testing is a very controversial topic. High schools all over the world test and many have different opinions on the topic. Some believe that this is needed to keep kids drug free. Others, however, believe it is an invasion of privacy and is unconstitutional. The testing is mostly for people who are in extracurriculars.
Even the young athletes that play sport for different reasons begin to feel threatened by their performance and well developed physique. In most cases this would be another reason why students are taking steroids, because of the pressure they experience from their peers that are taking steroids. Even though the rate of steroid use for females that play sport is just below 10%, the numbers of high school and college athletes that take some sort of supplement with their workouts is still very high as it falls around the 40 to 50% margin (John Whyte, M.D., MPH, 2011). Other studies have shown that another factor responsible for increasing the numbers of steroid use in students is the readily availability of the drug to anyone. Steroids can be purchased legally or illegally on the street.
Even though using performance enhancement drugs can give athletes benefits, but it can also cause harm and severe danger as well, therefore using drugs in sports should still be illegal. Competitors would prepare harder and try to meet their goals while some will attempt to cheat their way by utilizing enhanced medications to expand their capacities even beyond. The want to win is very affected in the idea of games, and a few competitors will do whatever it takes to ascend to the top. Over the most recent few years, numerous competitors in various games have been caught using performance enhancement drugs. At the point when a competitor tests positive to participate in sports, the competitor is either disqualified or suspended for the entire game.
With two outs, Luken Baker singled through the left side, knocking in Cam Warner.

Head coach Randy Mazey dipped back into the bullpen and freshman Cody Wood gave up a two-run base hit to Nolan Brown, cutting the Horned Frogs deficit to 4-2. A wild pitch made it a one run game and Ryan McDonald issued a two-run double to Connor Wanhannen to give TCU a 7-6 lead.
An unreasonable search and seizure would be for example if a school facility member overheard some students talking about a person, let 's say this person 's name is Susan. The teacher overheard some students say Susan has ibuprofen on her. Now if the facility member went up to Susan and proceeded to strip search her after she tells them she doesn 't have any, this would violate her right to privacy. With it only being ibuprofen the right to her privacy weigh more than the government interest. So when the school strip searched her, they violated her privacy which goes against the
Next, the consequences for using steroids are huge. Lastly (transition), many athletes that use steroids are better than their opponents, by cheating. Athletes that use steroids should have bigger consequences. First of all (transitions), reports show that athletes that use steroids have a number of health issues. According to www.drugabuse.gov , all steroid users could get liver damage, heart disease, changes in cholesterol, and weight loss.While (conjunctions) males will develop breast, have shrinking testicals,
These drugs can be abused by students, and for that reason drug testing should be more intensive. During a sport all the athletes are required to do drug testing, whether or not they have drugs in their system. These athletes take a urine test which is then sent to a lab. Although that is very effective, some drugs do not show up in the urine like alcohol, oxycodone, methadone to name a few. If sport teams do both urine and blood testing, they could rule out more
Pierzynski vs. Michael Barrett, 2006 After a fly ball out, White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski tagged up and tried to score from third base. Pierzynski bowled over Cubs catcher Mike Barrett on his way to the plate and emphatically slapped home to score.

The benches cleared as a result, and four players, including Barrett and Pierzynski, were ejected from the game.

The specified medication involved in treating the disorder involves the application of ADHD stimulants meaning that if the drug is taken as prescribed by the medical doctor, the behavior and attention insignificance will be reduced remarkably. ADHD drugs are commonly abused by people through injection, insufflation, even rectal administration of the pills. Different research conducted has illustrated the illegal use of ADHD medication for their stimulating properties. Research indicates that students using the drug as a stimulant shows a positive increase in performance and cognitive skills (Vester, Brady and Galanter 78). Additionally, college students abusing the drug through using it as a stimulant state believe that the drug revives the body and the brain hence increase the ability to focus academically.
