A group led by an emergency room doctor and a former NATO commander on Monday began giving out drug testing kits and encouraged parents to use them at home on their kids.
Drug Free America Inc., founded by Dr. Doug Smith of West Palm Beach, dropped thousands of kits off with community leaders in Broward and Orange counties to make them available to parents who request them.Gen. Alexander Haig, the former leader of NATO forces in eastern Europe and now spokesman for Drug Free America, said the kits provide a good reason to parents to talk to their children about drugs.``It is integral that we, as a nation, unite in the war on drugs,'' Haig said. ``These kits and this campaign afford parents the opportunity to openly communicate their views of drug use to their children.''The kits are free and can be used at home. Results can be checked anonymously by telephone seven days after a urine sample is mailed to the national lab in a postage-paid envelope provided in the kits.The test kits include a small plastic cup for a urine sample and a vial in which to send it. They also include a code number for each kit so no names need to be used.Everything from the postage to the supplies to the laboratory results is paid for by Drug Free America through private donations, Smith said.The kits feature simple instructions and crisis telephone numbers for teens and parents.

Haig is another general that ought to fade away
All I can muster up as a rememberance of General Haig is when he stood on the portico and bleated out."I am in Control"We mostly laughed at his arrogance and ego.He was Sec of State and comforting us in the USA that the country had leadership (yeah right) during one of our presidential mishaps.CheersRainbow

I can see it now...
Hordes of children following around behind Rover and Fluffy intent upon collecting something that previously had less than zero value.Men in overcoats standing on street corners, saying "Pssst! Hey kids! Wanna buy some p---?" and then running for their lives form the newly appointed Pure P-- Police who doggedly hunt down such miscreants in the name of public safety.The seismic activity from George Washington, Jefferson, Franklin and others, spinning in their graves at the shenanigans we let our leaders perform on us must lead scientists to think the long awaited Eastern Quake is here.
