In today's world most job interviews require mandatory drug testing. Corporations, unions and even smaller companies require different levels of drug testing. Heck you can't work for the government or join the military without a ... Read More...
Chuck welcome to reality, You test every league and suspend all the players you have a major issue.
You no longer have any players.
Your interpertation leads the average individual to believe that you are a sheltered person.
Hockey players have Nausea, Depression Anxiety and sometimes they have bad days.
There is no problem in the game of hockey concerning this issue. These kids were doing it before they were in juniors. They did it while they were in juniors. They are still doing it and they will continue to do it while they are in college.
Chuck if you test all leagues you now have more than 70 d3 programs that no longer exist.
If mandatory drug testing eliminates 70% of the current NCAA Div III players from the level of play, the game certainly has a serious problem.
I agree with Chuck, junior hockey should introduce a drug testing program that is implemented and administered by the leagues. On-Ice officials could oversee 5 guys from each team getting tested before every game. The players would average 4 tests a season and never know when they are next. There are a number of national companies that conduct this type of testing and should cost less than $100 a year per player. That is a small price to pay to give colleges a clinically clean player.
The first dirty test gets a player the rest of the year off. The next and he is out of the game.
For the cost of a good stick, we can eliminate 95% of the problem.
Every dime spent on drugs is blood money. There are places in Mexico that are all but a war-zone due to casual drug use here in the United States. Children and innocent people are being killed every day in the name of drug trafficking. Bring that bloodshed to your neighborhood and then tell me this is a bad idea.
