I graduated high school last year. If the school I was at, which was a predominately white, middle class public school in northern CA would have drug tested I would conservatively guess that roughly 60% of the students would be found to have used it in the past 28 or so days that a urinalysis tests for. They would also (probably) be surprised to find out that roughly the same amount of the honor roll students, or more would have also been found to have used marijuana. I think that the schools would not actually implement widespread drug enforcement more than they already do. As it stands now, the police on a regular basis bring their drug sniffing dogs through the halls and search for drugs in lockers, since its school property they can open and search a locker whenever they want for any reason. Most of the school sports do the "pee on a stick" drug testing if you get the physical exam from the school itself, failing that will preclude you from participating in school sanctioned sports. But the real reason why the schools around where I live will not implement widespread testing is because they cannot afford to lose students. Since public schools in CA get paid from the state based on daily attendance they will more or less avoid a major cut in enrolled students. Since the administration of schools and the teachers are all friends and know each other, they watch each others back and will not allow such a widespread drop in students, and ultimately money coming into the schools.
