To Pee or Not to Pee!
Drug-testing giant Psychemedics has won approval from the US Food and Drug Administration for a
new test that detects the presence of THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana, in human hair.
According to Psychemedics, the hair test allows for the detetection of drugs used as long as
three-months prior to the time of testing. The company also touts the ability to keep the suspect, er,
employee or student, under surveillance while the sample is taken - a problem for urine drug testers
who encounter people who dislike being watched while they go to the bathroom.
"Psychemedics' hair analysis has consistently proven to be more effective than urinalysis and other
methods in correctly identifying drug abusers," claimed the company web site. "In fact, when hair and
urine results were compared in 'side-by-side' evaluation, 5 to 10 times as many drug abusers were
accurately identified with the Psychemedics hair test."
"Psychemedics is the only company to have any FDA-cleared hair test, and we now have them in all
the major drugs of abuse categories," bragged CEO Ray Kubacki in a statement announcing the FDA
approval. Psychemedics developed a hair test for ecstasy in 2000, and has since issued press
releases shrilly announcing a huge ecstasy abuse problem.
Psychemedics provides drug testing services to more than 2,200 corporations, as well as the Federal
Reserve, five of the nation's largest police departments and numerous school districts, according to
the firm's web site. Its corporate headquarters are at 1280 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge, MA,
and it has a toll-free phone number - (800) 628-8073 - for people wishing to contact the company.
