Parents in Milan are being offered free urine-testing kits so they can
find out if their teenagers are using illegal drugs. In a part of the
northern Italian city, which is controlled by the right-wing National
Alliance party, almost 4,000 families will receive a coupon they can
exchange for a kit to test for widely used drugs, including cannabis
and cocaine.

The kits, available free to all parents of children aged 13 to 16,
are similar to pregnancy tests in that they need to be dipped in urine
for a few seconds and then they give a positive or negative reading
for a variety of drugs.
