Children have the right to receive accurate and objective information about drugs and drug-related harm, the right to protection from harmful misinformation, and the right to privacy.
In accordance with this right, States should:
i. Undertake evidence-based and human rights-compliant prevention measures, including in schools.
ii. Avoid excluding children from school due to risk-taking behaviours and take measures to ensure their access to education.
iii. Avoid random drug testing, sniffer dogs, and strip searches in schools.
