so in class today i heard an interesting piece of news... it may be just happening in idaho (or trying to be passed in idaho) that the gov't is gonna give 2000 dollars to students that test drug free to use for college...
it hasnt been passed yet, but i think its a good idea
i mean... i dont do any drugs (i get drunk once in a while)
and i could use that money...

the teacher said it may be 2000 dollars per year or per semester... but theyll test you in college too.

this sounds great.

anyone heard about this?
your thoughts on it?

Just go without drugs for about 6 days before the test and its an easy 2000 for college.
I don't do drugs

I say this because my friend did a dumb thing and smoked weed a couple days before our high school blood drive(which he participated in)

Yeah poeple could easily pass the drug tests though and get an easy $2000 - not a great idea imo.... still good for students tho!
#9
idk... it may be a national thing
i dont know

but yeah.
i think its a great idea
but seriously
is society getting that bad that the gov't has to pay you to do the right thing(s)?


to dylpikle:
its probably waaay random... im sure theyre not gonna just tell you what day theyre gonna test you so thay can give away 2 grand...

Idaho doesn't have any relaxed marijuana laws, so it wouldn't affect that state.

i doubt anyone in college has glaucoma.

i'd love to get this scholarship and continue to use drugs they can't test for, just for laughs.

Stupid. Good for the drug-free students I suppose, but unethical.


Not really if you think about incentives and externalities then it gives more students the incentive to be drug free

This would be way easy to bypass. Just binge smoke all you want and stop for about a week.

There's an easy $2000 for your efforts.
#19
Hmm, Idaho is just a state over...but then again I would probably pay a lot more for tuition than that per year for being an out of state student.

sure, why not? For all the people saying "omg wut a stoopid idea drugs are great", what difference to you? Either way you wont get money, so don't be selfish and try to say no one else should get any.
I don't know how much money the US has to throw around, though. But then again we're in debt a few billion anyways, so what's a few more gonna do
#21
I'd just wait until I got my 2,000 bucks and then I'd buy $2000 worth of Weed, Shrooms, Acid, etc and go balls out.

I don't smoke weed anyway, so if they introduce this in Massachusetts that'll be great for me.

Sounds like america is just trying another approach to control and divide people.

"Okay Mr. Junkie, since you've failed your 14th drug test, I suggest you rethink your habits and become like myself; clean, law-abiding, and drug-free. You don't want to be ignorant and without a career do you?"

****ing suits.

This really looks like a deep hole that they are attempting to fill by throwing money at it.

Damn that would be sweet. I haven't done any drugs in my life so I'd love to have this over here in CA.

This thread reeks of FAIL. Because I smoke marijuana once a month and like to do ecstasy once in awhile I get cheated out of money? I guarantee you I can still get better grades and work harder then half the people who are drug free. Not to mention, you can get drunk every night and still qualify? How is that fair? I mean alcohol is the drug that screws around with college students the most. Why should marijuana or other drug users have to take the fall? Get it through your heads that drug use is not unethical, and it is up to the person using to ensure that they moderate intake and keep their priorities straight so they emerge from university in control of their life. This scholarship is highly unethical and I wouldn't want some drug-free prudes who are proud of the fact they're clean to get free money.

Doing drugs is the right thing...

Hmm? Hate to break it to you, but alcohol is a drug.

Well, looks like I won't be getting money that way in college...
