when I was probation we would pee in a cup, they guy would stick some cardboard thing in it and voila... They didnt charge for that, other than court costs and fees... so maybe they kinda did, but if you could buy 10's of thousands of those tests I'm guessing you'd get them pretty cheap.
Same thing with drug tests at work. Those don't cost me a thing. Just stick that cardboard thing into the cup. Not sending it out to a lab for some crazy scientist to gas fire spectromometer the stuff.

a reply to: KillerKellThat's all well and good but what about the people doing the testing? How many are they on say $50000 a year.
As for all you people lambasting welfare recipients, how about we make them wear red patches on their coats and if they test possitive for drugs they have to wear a yellow patch along side the red one. That's sarcasm you sanctimonious bas*****.

I don't like the idea of a cheek swab, I'd rather pee in a cup. Sounds like it will be used for DNA records if they are swabbing.

Like I said in that thread. They set aside $300k, they've currently spent $300. Basically what it means is they were going to test 300 people as a pilot study to see if it was viable to test the population at large. Then they tested a fragment of that sample. That fragment seems to be one person, which is how you get 0% because it's either 100% or 0%.
