Why Do We Need to Know

If teenagers have drank in the last 80 hours? I mean that's like 10 days or something. And I'm not going to do the usual big brother out to get teenagers rant because a)Who likes teenagers? b)I have no clue if this is a trend, an isolated event or a media sensation. It just popped up when I went to yahoo to check the email account that I use for my "friends" in Thailand and Vietnam.
PEQUANNOCK, N.J. - Some teenagers who drink over the weekend could be in big trouble come Monday morning: A New Jersey school district plans to institute random urine tests capable of detecting whether alcohol was consumed up to 80 hours earlier.

This however, does get me a bit hot.
The EtG test costs about $20, Reynolds said. The school's overall testing program is funded by a three-year, $120,000 federal grant.

Just great. Not only is my money going towards NOT getting teenage girls drunk, it's actually going towards discouraging teenage drinking. Thanks for making me work twice as hard. Really appreciate it.
