With more and more companies requiring pre-employment and random drug testing it can be hard to get away with using in the workplace these days. You have probably done a good job or hiding your habit and keeping your composure, but you don’t have time to prepare for a drug test. And, this is why it is always important to have the perfect excuse on hand in the event that you do fail a drug test.
It Was Something I Ate
You might be surprised to learn how many people fail drug tests and they have never even seen a drug before in their life. This is because what you take in your body can alter or skew the results of drug tests. For instance, a poppy seed muffin or bagel can make you test positive for morphine or codeine (opiates).
However, it is also important to keep in mind that technology has changed and standards are being modified, so this excuse might not always pan out. In order to successfully pull this off, you are going to need to know what substances can trigger your drug of choice.
For instance, you are a frequent alcohol user you can use yeasty foods as an excuse. If you are a frequent purveyor of cannabis, you might be able to get away with saying you had a salad or cooked with hemp oil. Just know what your drug of choice is and what food source could have trigger the false positive.
I took Ibuprofen And Advil For A Headache
Over the counter drugs are not only good for curing certain ailments, but they have been helping drug addicts hide in plan sight for years now. These medications can mask some drugs and can even provide you with a valid excuse as to why you tested positive.
Ibuprofen and Advil are truly unique because they can provide a false positive for a number of drugs including cocaine, opiates, ecstasy and LSD. Keep in mind that some employers and labs might require you to fill out long forms before submitting to the drug test. The forms will contain all kinds of information including a section where you declare that types of medications that you are currently taken of have taken in the past 48 hours.
You Got The Samples Mixed Up
Testing labs are highly monitored and supervised, but they are monitored and supervised by humans. This means that this is always room for error. This one is a long shot, but it has worked for many addicts in the past or at least gave them enough time to actually clean their system.
If your employer or the lab does buy this excuse, you can guarantee that you are going to be retested. You had better makes 100 percent sure that you test negative next time, because another excuse will likely fail.
I Had A Bout With The Flu Or I Had A Cold
Did you know that some highly skilled individuals could use over the counter cold medications to formulate a chemical version of methamphetamine? That’s right, and this is because most over the counter flu and cold medications contain Pseudoephedrine. This is a synthetic amphetamine that is used in the making of meth. Of course, this excuse will only work if your drug of choice is amphetamine, but it is one that will prove valid.
The best thing about this excuse is that you will not need any written excuse from a doctor because you can simply buy these medications right over the counter.
Just keep in mind that you will probably be tested again or if you put down that you used these medications on the testing form, you might not be tested until days later. This will buy you the time that you need to come up with a plan.
My Doctor Or Dentist Prescribed That To Me
Dentists and doctors are commonly prescribing pain medications to help patients battle pain and other unwanted symptoms. This is a pretty good excuse, but bear in mind that it should be a last resort. And, it should be a last resort because you will actually probably have to produce a written prescription or an excuse from the doctor. If you were not really prescribed the medication it is going to be hard to obtain this written excuse.
My Hemp CBD Oil Must Have Caused This
Hemp derived CBD oil is a product that has been on the market for quite some time now. It is being highly praised for all its medicinal benefits. And, the best thing about the product is that it is legal because it contains such low amount of THC. In fact, it only contains 0.3 percent THC, which isn’t enough to get you high or cause you to fail a drug test.
However, there has been wide spread regulation problems with brands of CBD oil that contained more than 0.3 percent THC.
