Navy Developing New Tools To Detect Designer Drugs
Monday, July 2, 2012
Navy reviews its testing of synthetic compounds continuously, and also continually responds to production of new controlled and synthetic compounds, changing testing procedures and pacing the changes being made by producers.
The Navy reports that since it began testing for synthetic chemical compounds in March, a total of 101 urine samples out of 3,300 tested positive.
More than 1,500 Sailors got kicked out of the Navy in 2011 for using or distributing Spice.
