De Villiers is no cheatTommy Conlon Pieter de Villiers accidentally ended up with a cocktail of cocaine and ecstasy coursing through his bloodstream after he and his Stade Francais team mates went out for a feed of drink after beating Harlequins.

The South African-born French rugby player is now facing a ban of two years after a random test on December 18 picked up traces of the drugs.

If his statement is any thing to believe, Pieter de Villiers probably had received an unfair deal.

High school drug testing tests for recreational drugs and steroidsSince the advent of steroids in baseball and the rampant steroids use even among high school and student athletes, steroid testing is now mandatory in nearly every level of competition.

University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) athletes are also subject to testing by the university and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

According to Roy Rudewick, UTA’s athletic trainer, their policy involves up to three offenses only. Steroids may be a problem in baseball but recreational drugs such as marijuana, cocaine and the likes are more rampant.

A 2008 study conducted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse showed that about 1.5 percent of high school seniors have used steroids but more than 30 percent of the respondents have used marijuana.

Out of the 16,000 respondents, 192 admitted to steroids use and 4,800 admitted to marijuana use.

Rudewick said athletes are selected once a month for random steroid testing. That means an individual will get to be tested six times in one school year. Although their drug testing focuses more on recreational drugs, performance-enhancing drugs are also included.

NCAA on the other hand, tests for more drugs and substances that are not included in UTA’s drug testing.
