Just Pray That It Doesn't Happen to You

July 19, 1986

A strong case for random urinalysis testing of professional and college athletes has been made since the deaths of Len Bias and Don Rogers. However, many people are against testing because they think it strips people of their rights.

As an enlisted man in the United States Navy, I am subject to random urinalysis tests, and when asked to submit to tests, I have no feelings of betrayal or loss of rights. I do sleep much better knowing that co-workers I depend on do not use drugs.
