It's been atleast 3-4 years since my last random drug test for work, so maybe I'm out of the loop as to what's normal now a days. Any test I've ever taken was a piss test.
So the wife is starting a new job, and was hesitant about her drug test today. She doesn't smoke much, and has definitely been long enough for herb, but she'll partake in a vicodin here and there. Long story short, she went to the new jobs office today to fill out paperwork, expecting to be sent to a different facility to do the drug test. NO. The HR chick opens her desk and pulls out a kit. Saliva swabs her on the spot. They sit there for minutes watching the thing process and she passed. Has anyone else ever heard of this? She'd have been SOL if she got Quickfix, or anything else, if she thought she wouldn't pass.
Just a heads up for anyone else going to new job drug tests.

the new saliva drug tests are getting common and are supposed to be easiest to beat. i know a heavy smoker who got past one recently using mouthwash and hydrogen peroxide.

I love swab tests. They really just check if you have been under the influence recently like the past 24hrs. not like blood and urine that go back weeks. I think that is a fair test, even though I am completely against random testing and testing should only happen by court order, such as work place accident, or car accident

Cussing and swearing is not allowed on this forum. This is the very first rule.

The saliva swab is level 1 stuff. The only thing they catch, is people off guard, crazy easy to pass.
