You Can Now Purchase Urine OTC

Synthetic urine that is. On August 3rd, the Kansas City Star published a piece about synthetic urine being sold all around the KC metro area. This synthetic urine is meant to be a cheat for employee drug tests, but this pee isn’t fooling anyone anymore.

Where You Find Synthetic Urine

It’s as easy as asking the cashier in your local convenience store. The product is kept behind the counter and sold with specific wording (i.e. for sexual use or practical joke use) on their packaging because, obviously, it is illegal if marketed for its true purpose.

You Can’t Cheat a Drug Test With It

Real urine is between 90 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s a small window. The only reason it would ever be higher is if you had a fever while you took the test. Lab techs will now note the temperature and toss the sample if it’s not in that 10-degree temperature range so they won’t waste resources.

Lab Prevention Helps Some

Most testing sites provide lockers for individuals to store purses, bags, backpacks, even large sweaters. People with looser clothes are asked to turn out their pockets to prevent concealing a faked sample in their clothing. Unfortunately, some people still manage to smuggle it in.

A Waste of Time and Resources

The lab does not care that you snuck in fake urine to falsify a test; they care that you snuck it in and wasted their time and resources. If a technician spends a good portion of their day sifting through fake drug tests for pre-employment screening, there are legitimate medical tests that have to wait longer in line for their results.
