Random drug testing should be alowed in High Schools.

I will accept Con for this argument. Since Pro has failed to offer definitions, I will do so here.

Random - "proceeding, made, or occurring without definite aim, reason, or pattern" [1]
Drug Testing - for the sake of this argument, we will assume that a standard 5-panel drug test is being administered. The implication is that a school cannot test for a specific drug, as this would undermine the assumed "randomness" of the test.

Pro has failed to specify which country our hypothetical school is located, and under which government it is ruled--so, for the sake of the argument, Pro must either provide a form of government that our school is subject to, or must prove universally that "random drug testing" is beneficial to all high schools.

I'm sorry about that first argument. I am doing research on Random Drug Testing for High School and Junior High students in the U.S. Random drug testing is a very affective way to reduce drug use among teens who are under the influence. Its been proved that if you randomly test students, their peers will try to stop or be more responsible about using drugs.
