Undercover feds report problems in drug testing of truckers

| 11/1/2007

The U.S. government says it’s relatively easy for truckers to cheat on random drug tests and get away with it.

According to MSNBC, undercover federal investigators posed as truckers at 24 drug-testing sites and found that 75 percent of the time, the testers didn’t restrict access to items like water or soap that could be used to alter the test’s outcome.

The investigators were also able to take drug-masking products that are available over the Internet into test sites without being caught.
