A New Jersey school district is adopting a new policy that allows officials to randomly test students. The test they'll use can detect alcohol as much as three days after its consumption.
When students test positive, their parents will be told. They'll also get counseling, but won't be kicked off teams or kept from after-school activities.
The school superintendent believes it'll keep students from giving in to peer pressure to drink.
Officials acknowledge the tests can produce false positives after using things like mouthwash and Balsamic vinegar. But they say a student generally has to have one or two drinks for the test to register.
The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey calls the tests an invasion of privacy.
