In this statement the topic of illegal drugs (such as marijuana, cocaine, and narcotics) used for socalled 'recreational' purposes, and some prescribed drugs (such as barbiturates and amphetamines) used for illicit purposes, is addressed. The focus of this statement is not on drug use in children and adolescents, which the Academy strenuously opposes but on proposals for involuntary screening for drug use, whether in schools, athletic programs, or the physician's office.
