Hear we go again: ‘Mobile drug testing, there is no escaping it’. But there’s a very large defect in this statement by the NSW Police Force.
When someone wants to buy a product that involves chemicals it is required by law that the product for sale lists what the chemicals are and the safety measures to be taken.
If someone happens to be stopped for a roadside drug test, there is a very sound reason to ask the police officer what are the chemicals that are present on the stick they want you to lick.
When this happened to me I was told it was nothing and to proceed with the testing. This is the defect that exists with the drug testing.
Being chemical sensitive the only option I have is to refuse the test and put my case before the court.
I have this information from the ombudsman as I inquired about the chemicals involved in the drug test and as it stands by law I am breaking The Law if I refuse the drug test.
From my own research, the chemicals impregnated on the drug test stick are not suitable for human consumption and there are no indications from the police or the testing device what the chemicals are, that they want me to ingest.
If I am stopped again for the drug test I will be facing court to put my case. It is very reasonable to expect a full disclosure from the police of the chemicals involved in the test, that they want me to ingest.
They are classifying me as a law breaker if I say no to the test.
Something is wrong with the drug testing laws. Say no to the test and ask the court for a full disclosure of the chemicals involved in the drug test.
Then time is needed to research the implications of the effect of the chemicals on a human being.
