Although rare, drug testing in schools continues to be practised in some European countries, where it is seen as a deterrent to use. This paper evaluates the effectiveness of random testing in schools, based on studies conducted among students aged 13 to 19 years, in the United States. Although different with regard to study design and the type of testing offered, all of the studies show that testing has little or no effect on drug use.
