    Drug Testing Kits

    Current

      The Union to sell Drug testing kits at a discount rate. Some students take drugs. We should be educating our students on safe drug use, not stigmatising it. RUSU should sell drug testing kits that students can have access to. This will ensure students know exactly what they are putting into their bodies. The Union should also maintain students' privacy by not recording personal details of students who buy drug testing kits.

    9:37pm on 7 Mar 17 Or educate students on drug risks and encourage them not to take them? why should it be accepted that students are performing illegal actions? its hardly a good message for the University to be saying "We are a place of learning, but also encouraging you to break the law"

    10:52am on 20 Mar 17 We should be offering drug testing kits alongside better education about drugs and drug usage. Whilst educating our students is important it doesn't actually actively relieve any of the major dangers. Education does go someway to helping but we shouldn't assume all students take drugs because they are ignorant for many it is an informed choice and we must work to help students without judgement. The students union is about welfare and you have misunderstood its aims if you think that this motion would be 'encouraging students to break the law'.
