RE: Failed Drug Test
Just because someone fails a drug test doesn't really make them a loser,
I don't care what you are told about testing there is only a 70% chance it is right however the DOT test is abit more accurate but still in general there is a National FALSE POSITIVE rate of 20 to 30% a good example of this is a Rx dose of 800mg of ibuprofen twice daily will test some people positive for Weed.
if you dont demand a retest they will more than likely say you was positive for Weed,
another example I rely on is I worked on Gov. contract jobs and got tested twice a month randomly there was one guy who smoked pot like a champ and over the 3 years I worked with him he NEVER tested positive he always like clock work got a FALSE NEGITIVE.
Best thing to do with a positive test: fight it, deny it, NEVER admit it, If you know you was tested with a FALSE POSITIVE they will retest the other half of your sample and pry figure out they screwed up.
NEVER accept the test is full proof and never wrong , it is a human handled test " it is human to error "
As for future employers seeing the results if your friend is a driver then yes it will more than likely turn up on a DAC and 99% of the OTR jobs he will apply for will ask him if he ever refused a drug test or ever tested positive if he lied and they didnt find it I guess all would be well, but if it came back in a DAC and he lied about it on the application they pry wont hire him anyway,
as for the DAC report if you are out of work and looking for work you are able to get a free DAC report on yourself once a year, if you are working you can still peek your DAC report by paying $8.50 U.S.Dollars and sending a request letter to DAC with all your personal info S.S.# , D/O/B , Address , I forget what all they ask for you can find more info on DAC if you search their page here or contact then via. phone
(If this just happened I would wait awhile for the results to get to DAC and see if they do or do not show up there) Its kind of upto the employer if they turn them into DAC or not.
I my self never had a problem with the test but I have had work history in HR where testing was done and learned 1st hand about it .. Good Luck hope this helps ..
