Interesting press release about the problems of field drug test kits that are so ubiquitous, yet keep giving false positives and really messing up people’s lives.
However, there is now conclusive evidence the field drug tests falsely indicate the presence of drugs when used on numerous natural products such as soap, soy milk, essential oils and chocolate. […]
“We are alarmed by the growing number of people who have been taken to jail for simply possessing organic products,” says Ronnie Cummins, Executive Director of the Organic Consumers Association (OCA). “This is an attack on people who have adopted an organic natural lifestyle, whether it’s the food they eat, the soap they clean with or the perfumes they use. What kind of world do we live in where nursing mothers’ have their babies taken from them and are subjected to coercive interrogations to generate false confessions, over healthy organic foods like raw chocolate,” says Cummins who co-founded the 800,000 supporter strong OCA.
Here’s the line that grabbed my attention:
The American Civil Liberties Union’s (ACLU’s) Drug War Project is also contemplating a class action challenge to the drug war testing industry.
I even like the wording of that sentence.
