Should high school students have to take a Breathalyzer test before entering school dances?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 9, 2005
“I don’t think drugs or alcohol have any place at school, but that sounds somewhat ridiculous and expensive. The teachers should just use their best judgment when letting them in.”
“No. They are just there to have fun. As long as it’s not out of control, they should leave them alone.”
“I think Breathalyzer tests in general are an invasion of privacy without probable cause. I don’t think minors should have to take them without their parents’ consent unless they have broken the law.”
“I would say yes. First of all, they’re under 21, so it’s illegal for them to drink. Second of all, it might prevent them from driving drunk to the dance.”
