Have to submit a urinalysis for a job. How useful are at home tests?

Have to submit a urinalysis for a job. How useful are at home tests?

Not sure of question: How useful are home tests for what?

Better you stop using than trying to avoid detection. ...Read more

Can elderberry trigger a false positive on a UA? I am in recovery for alcohol and submit to regular drug/alcohol screening

Can doctors test for THC at prenatal visits without informing you first?

Can doctors test for THC at prenatal visits without informing you first?

Some states (but not California, as far as I know) DO require testing of pregnant women, typically at childbirth. ...Read more
