Rehab backing for new drug tests
(01-21 13:03)

A survey conducted by a drug rehabilitation school has found that most of its students support a proposed mandatory drug testing scheme.
Eighty students interviewed by Christian Zheng Sheng College backed the proposal. But two thirds were concerned about possible abuse of power by the police.
A public consultation on whether law enforcement officers should be empowered to force people they suspect of taking drugs to undergo a test will end this Friday. --RTHK
