(Studio: Bob Schieffer) Survey results showing a decrease in drug abuse among teens, but an increase among young adults, reported.

(Atlanta: Byron Pitts) Two students, Lindsay Earls and Daniel James, who are suing to avoid undergoing drug testing because of their participation in extracurricular activities, featured. [EARLS - says she was made to feel ashamed.] [JAMES - says people assume he does drugs because he refuses drug tests.] [ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) Graham BOYD - says the students getting tested are the least likely to use drugs.]
