P#!* off – fake urine unethical for drug testing


An Australian store is selling fake urine to help people pass drug testing in the workplace or on the roads.

The controversial store has been slammed by many as unethical. The Police and legal experts have also criticised the store and warned people not to use the product, as getting caught trying to pass a test is likely to lead to more significant consequences than getting caught behind the wheel or in the workplace with drugs in your system.

Integrity Sampling’s Michael Wheeldon, who appeared on major television this week, agrees that anyone who tries to fake a drug test is unethical and also setting themselves up for significant trouble.

“The other thing that this story does highlight is the benefits of using saliva-based testing for drugs,” Michael says. “Using saliva to drug testing, as we do at Integrity Sampling, is fast, accurate, non-intrusive and, more importantly, is witnessed throughout the entire process, thus eliminating the ability for the sample to be tampered with.”
