US student suspended for taking birth control at school

The Washington Post has an article about how some schools in the US have gone so far on their zero-tolerance drug policies that they have lost perspective. A student in Fairfax, Virginia faces expulsion over taking her birth control pills over lunch. The school does not allow any drugs, even over the counter or legitimate prescription drugs.

Without understating the damage that drugs can do, the US as a whole has lost perspective in the 'war' on drugs.
