A survey which will be conducted by youth in the community may confirm that hard drug useage is a problem for kids in the area.

Melita Caissie, an alcohol and drug counselor from the Nisha Family and Children's Services Society Astra program, is conducting the assessment with four local youth.

Youth will be helping with the survey over their spring break, asking kids to fill out questionnaires at popular youth hang-outs in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.

"I think that youth will be more inclined to answer to youth," she said.

Schenectady International Inc. recently imposed a random drug testing requirement for all workers.

The Fourth Amendment guarantees us that we have a right to privacy, unless there is probable cause. Drug tests violate our constitutional right to privacy and presumption of innocence.

The worker is forced to defend himself against a charge without any evidence or suspicion. Workers are now treated as guilty until proven innocent. While lower courts have established random drug tests as unconstitutional for many state and federal agencies, unfortunately the Constitution only protects citizens of the government and not of private companies.
