Absolutely in favor of drug-sniffing dogs: It successfully keeps lots of drugs off campus, reduces the need for the teaching staff to be drug-monitors, and most importantly gives kids a very plausible reason to refuse drugs. Rather than the age-inappropriate 'my parents will kill me' they can simply say, 'the dogs will find it'. Marijuana is not what it used to be, and kids are highly susceptible to problems. 9% become chronic users, higher rates of psychosis, unintended pregnancy, etc. Dog monitoring / deterrence is effective, and relatively inexpensive, and now we know it works. Our kids are, by far, the most precious things in our lives; lets keep them healthy.
On Drug-Sniffing Dog Contract Considered for Renewal

Well done! Ventura, Camarillo, Bishop Garcia, and other schools have this. This is not a constitutional issue - marijuana and children is a problem.
40% of California High School kids have used marijuana, and 9% will use daily. Marijuana is much more potent than in past times, with much attendant psychological problems, medical concerns, increased pregnancy and STD, poor job performance, not to mention reduced lifetime earnings and accomplishment. Anything to reduce this will benefit our kids.
Thanks to the school board for all they do on behalf of our kids, and for having the courage to do the right thing.
Our community found 750 million dollars for a new hospital building, but can't find 6 million dollars to maintain our schools and our kids' education?

So, a first attempted murder is essentially a freebie?

Great article! Thanks, such information I didn't even know I wanted to know.
Interesting how the Baltic culture blamed the dead, rather than attributing a village's ill-fortune to (soon to be not) living 'witches' as occurred in Salem, Mass.
