Synthetic Urine Getting Flushed by States- 14 Apr
The synthetic urine market was on a tear throughout the last decade. However, over the last few years, it has faced an onslaught of state laws trying to curtail its use. While it is still legal in several states, it is a promising sign that more legislators throughout the country are beginning to take up the mantle and press for tougher laws. Total Reporting is staying up to date on any changes that occur and will keep you updated along the way.
Here are the big questions around synthetics we encounter when doing drug screenings:
Is Synthetic Urine Detectable?
The short answer is Yes. By using a process called specimen validity testing, we can determine the origins of the urine – i.e., whether it is human or synthetic. However, as of now, there isn’t an industry standard for determining if a specimen is synthetic or has been substituted with another person’s urine. While several states have made synthetic urine illegal, there hasn’t been anything stopping cheaters from crossing state lines to get the products.
Without actual direct observation of the collection, there is not any 100% guarantee that real urine isn’t being substituted. That’s why it’s so critical that you use a reputable company. Total Reporting can administer your testing and screening processes.
As you’ve learned from working with our highly experienced team, the drug testing procedures can go very smoothly. That isn’t always the case, with several background and drug testing companies failing to provide fully accurate information. Some reporting doesn’t stay within legal guidelines. We take the worry and confusion out of the entire process. Our platform design will keep stress and confusion at bay. Check us out and see how we can work even better together.
