Do you know some kids want their schools to provide random drug-testing as a tool to say “NO” to peer pressure? Are you aware that passive drug-sniffing dogs are a way to keep kids safe while educating them about substance abuse? Are you aware that 11 out of 14 high schools in the Chicagoland area have closed campuses?
