Challenging Drug Testing: An Interesting Article

Ever find yourself dealing with the client who wants you to investigate a false positive drug test? Here is a link to an interesting article on false positives. The article linked deals with marijuana false positives, which, as it turns out, can be caused from hemp seed oils. When dealing with challenges to drug tests, it is also a good idea to contact a private lab. Sometimes a lab can be useful in interpreting test results.

The chemist will tell you that the metabolite from hemp seed oil is different than that from "marijuana" when using GC/MS.
However, it is still possible to establish a defense based on the use of products, such as salad dressing, that are based on hemp seed oil.
Bozy is the person I have had testify against a client for the prosecutions in a hemp seed oil.
