    Should Hand Sanitizer be banned from public schools?

    Some parents are worried that the 60% alcohol in hand sanitizer will lead to school children trying to get drunk from drinking it. Others are worried about the flammable nature of alcohol. Some school districts have already banned it. What do you think? See article below for more information.

    I thought that they were going to go with the whole, "It breeds more anti-biotic resistant strains," but then I saw this depressing line of reasoning. I assure anyone here, that teenagers have far les retarded methods of getting wasted.

    I don't get the whole "hand sanitizer" bit. Maybe thinking has changed, but when I worked in a hospital the infections control nurses told us that alcohol was really a pretty poor germ killer.

    I agree that flammability should be a concern.

    I never have been drunk, and had no desire ever to be so as a kid, so I guess I don't get that problem either.

    I don't believe that Hand sanitizer should be banned in public. If I were are going bann anything, make it the Swine Flu.

    Of course us good republican right wingers are strongly hoping that those dam democrats who want heath and medical care well get the flu and pass away.

    Is it really all that surprising? I, too, have never been drunk, nor have I ever had the desire to be.

    I think kids should be prevented from drinking hand sanitizer or setting it on fire.

    It's called child control.

    I think it is an extreme rarity to not have been drunk once in ones lifetime.
