Hmm... not a bad idea. Free Tuition -- After a Drug Test West Virginia joins other states in offering free tuition at community colleges. But the new law is unique in asking all students seeking eligibility to pass a drug test. Starting in July, students in West Virginia seeking to take advantage of the state's new tuition-free community college program will have to submit to a blanket drug test. The policy makes West Virginia's free-tuition legislation unique nationwide. Frankly, these seems like a good idea. Why waste money on druggies?
