    i have never heard of boston college scouring dormitories and then illegally forcing students to take drug tests in order to detect completely legal medications. also i have never heard of any university in the united states doing this.

      is to add birth control pills to the standard random drug screenings?  And just what makes it any more illegal than any other drug testing?

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.

        is there any school in the united states that requires students to take random drug tests for legal medications?  if i'm not mistaken, there's only one or two college's that have tried for force all students to take random tests for illegal drugs -- and im pretty sure those cases are all being litigated vociferously. you're positing a scenario that is exotic, dystopian, and completely beyond the scope of the situation being discussed here. it's a non-issue. we're not talking about swat teams kicking down people's front doors and dragging them away for possessing birth control. we're talking about the administration of a catholic university insisting that students in campus housing respect certain tenets of catholic church doctrine with respect to their behavior, and that they not use their dwellings on school property to distribute condoms.
