Teens have few rights in drug exams

So, what rights do teens who are younger than 18 have when it comes to drug tests? Guy Jinkerson, who practices criminal law in San Jose, broke it down for us:

AT HOME: Parents ``can do whatever they want -- search kids' rooms, check their e-mail and invade their privacy,'' Jinkerson said. If a parent wants to administer a urine drug test to their child, the teen can't protest any more than ``I don't have to go right now.'' And teens can't stop parents from submitting test results to police as evidence of drug use. Because the test was given by a private citizen instead of a law-enforcement official, there is no (legal) question of consent.

AT SCHOOL: A principal or other school official can't force a student to take a drug test. He or she can, however, call police to take over an investigation of a student who appears to be under the influence.

THE POLICE: Officers can't search your car or force you to take a drug test of any kind (blood, breath, urine) without probable cause.

IF YOU'RE CAUGHT: If you are prosecuted for drug use, the penalty for your first offense depends on the type of drug. Marijuana will most likely result in informal supervision by a probation officer. Harder drugs, such as methamphetamine, cocaine or hallucinogenic mushrooms, will probably result in court supervision and the fulfillment of certain requirements, including community service.

That is how it is with everything until you are 18.
