Not My Kid campaign

On July 29th , the "Not My Kid" non-profit launches a valley-wide campaign encouraging parents to drug test their kids. Shane Watson, manager of Parents & Faculty Programs, says we must have open dialogue between parents and kids about risk of drug use. Also, help kids avoid peer pressure by empowering to say, “No, I can’t; my parents drug test me." Lastly, drug testing alerts the parent if their child is using drugs and how they can respond to the situation.

Here in Phoenix, parents may visit any of the locations between July 29 and August 4 to pick up their free drug test kit:
