Listed below are links to weblogs that reference drug free school zone:
That sign is in need of a hyphen anyway. They were all over Frederick County in the nineties, with the appropriate apostrophe between drug and free.

We had one installed at my high school the year I graduated. Over the four years I attended, a definite thug element to the school culture had more prevalent. I always figured the sign was best written as "School Free Drug Zone". It fit.
Don't get me wrong, I had some great teachers and went off to college well prepared. But I was also in the honors and AP classes. I heard that the "regular" classes were barely controlled chaos. The hallways and lunchtime certainly were.

I may be wrong but there are also drug laws that increase the penalties for possession/distribution within a certain distance of a school, and these signs are supposed to be at the distance. So unlike the Nuclear-Free zone signs, these signs are not part of a political/social movement but a legal warning.
