Image by Rob Shenk via FlickrSchools in Crawford County, Ohio, have implemented a random drug test policy for students involved in sports and extra-curricular activities. Five of the six districts in the County now permit the random testing.

Image via WikipediaIt’s not every day Mothers Against Drunk Driving is accused of acting like a radical fringe group, but today the American Beverage Institute did just that, calling MADD an “anti-alcohol group that has been hijacked by the modern day temperance movement.”  The offense?

That Amendment outlawed the production, sale, transportation, import, and export of alcohol. The era during which alcohol was illegal in the USA is generally known as "Prohibition". The enactment of national prohibition took away...
