Came across a wonderful story out of Olive Hill, Kentucky from WSAZ.

NEED A HOME DRUG TEST KIT FOR SOMEONE AT YOUR SCHOOL OR SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY? CLICK HERE.

Kids actually were supporting a program that advocates drug testing in school and in the home. And for those who participate by being tested at school, or having their parents test them, the kids receive a t-shirt that they can proudly wear that says “Screened and Clean.”

Here’s what the students had to say:

“If there’s a party and kids are tempted to do drugs, and the parents might test them when they get home, they’ll think twice,” –student Morgan McGlone

“It will help the relationship between parents and kids. Because too many kids think they can get away with it – and they shouldn’t get away with it.” –student Sarah Crum

“If the parents are using drugs, I would say, ‘If you test me, then I should be able to test you,’ so it’s fair for one or the other,” –student Kansas Cox

We often encounter resistance about home drug testing, and many times, it’s the parents making up the most excuses. On top of it, they rarely discuss drugs and the anti-drug message at home with their children. It’s one of the leading reasons why 2,500 children try drugs for the first time every day.

This screen and clean program sets a great example, and like one student said, if the popular kids are wearing the shirts, maybe more kids will want to hop on the bandwagon!
