The new synthetic drugs that have been flooding the market have been a growing cause for concern for employers. To get around testing positive for marijuana, many employees have turned to synthetic marijuana due to the inability of companies to test for the presence of it in a urine sample—until now. An ABC News article released last week revealed that employers will now be able to determine if employees are using synthetic marijuana products like Spice.

Recovery Associates’ onsite drug testing laboratory uses state-of-the-art technology to test for a number of synthetic drugs, including Spice, Bath Salts and Kratom.

“I think we are going to see an increase in the number of people seeking treatment for synthetic marijuana. Addicts experience a tremendous amount of denial during their active addiction. It’s hard for them to admit that they have a problem until they start experiencing negative consequences. Losing your job as a result of your drug use is kind of hard to ignore,” states a drug and alcohol counselor at Recovery Associates.
