Brett Kavanaugh on Drugs

 

 


Allow mandatory drug testing at school for at-risk youth

A 2012 case concerning drug testing--for which Kavanaugh wrote a dissenting opinion--is also revealing. The federal judge argued that mandating drug testing of government employees at specialized residential schools for at-risk youth doesn't violate the Fourth Amendment.

"A residential school program for at-risk youth who have a history of drug problems can turn south quickly if the schools do not maintain some level of discipline," he wrote. "To maintain discipline, the schools must ensure that the employees who work there do not themselves become part of the problem. That is especially true when, as here, the employees are one of the few possible conduits for drugs to enter the schools."
