There are many: false positives with screening tests for methamphetamine and other stimulants, but if you have a report that gies that kind of number, it would sound like a more sophisticated test was done, like gas chromatography and mass spectroscopy. If you are using other street drugs, lots of them are cut with other things, including forms of speed. If there was no chain of custody on specimen,mistakes occur
