Four Atlantic Coast Conference schools have some form of drug-screening program for their athletes and two more schools say they will soon implement testing, ACC officials say.
At the NCAA convention last month, a proposal was on the agenda that would have authorized drug tests, but the motion was tabled for a year.
Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, North Carolina and Clemson have drug-screening programs for substances like cocaine and marijuana. Maryland and N.C. State each say they want to have drug testing at their schools soon.
"Believe me, I'm ready," said Maryland Athletic Director Dick Dull. "Drugs have not been a big problem at Maryland in the four years I've been AD, but I feel testing is legal and I feel the integrity of the sports demands that it be done. But, there are certain constitutional rights which must be considered." . . .
