Beginning this school year the state of New Jersey will test nearly 5% of the some 10,000 high school athletes who will participate in state tournaments. New Jersey is the first state to administer steroid tests to high school athletes in such a wide-spread manner.
Athletes will be chosen at random and tests will be analyzed by the UCLA Olympic Analytical Lab in Los Angeles. Each test will run about $175���a large reason why many states have not taken the lead on this issue. It���d be great if this forces the other 49 to step up and take some immediate action.
