More “The Office” and Drug Testing

Published by:

You may remember that I posted a blog awhile ago with a hilarious video from the TV show The Office. It seems like Dwight was trying to be a anti-drug enforcer and he ended up looking like a big ol’ idiot.

If you liked that, you’re in luck people. Here’s some great deleted scenes from that same episode of the The Office. Who knew drug testing could be so funny?

Wow, I felt like a salesperson there. Maybe I’m in the wrong department? I know drug testing is serious business, but what’s life without a little bit of poking fun at that stuff you’re not supposed to laugh at? But remember: if you think a friend or loved one is using drugs, a home drug testing kit could save their life!

Pot Makes Your Brain Go To Pot

Published by:

You remember those old “This is your brain on drugs” commercials with the egg frying in a pan? Everyone knows that drugs cause damage to your brain, but I bet you didn’t know that marijuana can have life-altering effects on your brain as well. So many people think of marijuana as a drug that, while it can impair you for a while, doesn’t cause permanent damage. But think again.

Marijuana use has been shown to be linked to the development of depression, suicidal thoughts and even schizophrenia. Those are very serious mental health disturbances!

It seems that if you used marijuana from the age of 18 onward, you are six times more likely to become schizophrenic. Six times more likely! So much for no serious side effects, huh?

So people can continue to kid themselves or acknowledge the fact that, as with any drug, marijuana alters your brain chemistry, and with persistent use, can cause permanent, irreversible damage.

You can help prevent drug use in your home by using at home drug testing kits that detect up to ten drugs at a time. Put a stop to drug use today.

French Coach Thinks NZ Rugby is Druggy

Published by:

Some coach in France by the name of Bernard Laporte thinks New Zealand and England rugby players aren’t being tested enough for drug use.

He says the problem occurs because international players only submit to urine drug tests and that just isn’t quite enough.

However, at the World Cup this year in France, everyone should be happy because drug testing is thoroughly enforced.

Even so, I don’t know what the big deal is. England, from what I understand, has a full-time officer in charge of making sure no players use drugs. That’s pretty committed to preventing drug use, if you ask me! I wonder if they use hair drug tests?

A Good Look At Meth

Published by:

Found this video on YouTube today. Just look at what methamphetamine does:

Disgusting isn’t it? Well, all but the Mr. Bean, part. So I guess that’s my public service announcement of the day. Don’t do meth, people! If it makes you look like this on the outside, imagine what it does to you on the inside?

If you are concerned a loved one may be abusing meth, try a drug testing kit. It may not seem like it now, but a drug kit that can detect meth very well might save a life.

Drug Testing For Mayor?

Published by:

So what happens when you run for mayor in the twenty-first century? You submit to drug testing, that’s what. But Herman Morris, a mayoral candidate in Memphis is a-okay with it.

Morris voluntarily took a 10 panel drug test and provided both urine and hair samples for the lab. He was screened for both illegal and prescriptions drugs and was found to have no drugs in his system at all. He thinks that all mayoral candidates should submit to this test.

However, not all candidates are too happy. Some feel focusing on drug testing on candidates is “distracting” and a means of veering attention away from the actual campaign.

Regardless of what happens, Morris is setting a standard by which other candidates and professionals can be measured. After all, if sports pros need to be tested, then shouldn’t those that hold the power of the city, county, country or what have you be tested as well?

TLC Reality Star Arrested For DUI

Published by:

Matthew Roloff, star of TLC’s reality show “Little People, Big World” was arrested on June 19 after failing a sobriety test. It was about midnight after police pulled Roloff over after he was seen swerving all over the road in his van.

It takes some doing to hide a DUI for over a month if you’re in the entertainment business. Granted, “Little” may not be the biggest show on the air but I’ve seen it and it’s pretty good! Too bad this guy had to get behind the wheel after drinking. Not only is it dangerous to himself and all those on the road with him at the time, but it also sets a really poor example for those kids he has at home.

I wonder if they’ll deal with this in later episodes of the show?

Anyway, the point is, Lena says don’t drink and drive. It’s not smart and it’s a surefire way to either A. end up in jail or B. kill someone. Neither are really great options, so before you chug-a-lug and hop in the car, think twice. Call a cab, set up a designated driver or, here’s a novel idea, don’t drink! Or else I’ll install one of those alcohol detectors in your car. Yup! I’ll do it!

Stress: Good and Bad

Published by:

Most of the time, stress is thought of as a very negative thing. After all, that overwhelmed feeling we sometimes get can be disconcerting. This is especially the case when you have a lot to deal with in your life and the thought of having to deal with anything else makes you want to crawl in a corner.

However, stress is actually a good thing. In appropriate levels, that is. Too much stress is, of course, bad. But a little bit of stress keeps you alert, active and prepared for life.

Luckily, you can keep tabs on your stress levels by monitoring the hormones in your body–DHEA and cortisol primarily.

A home testing kit makes keeping track of these hormones a breeze. A Stress Check Test kit is the best way to monitor your stress levels and to ensure your body is dealing with stress in an appropriate manner.

There you go. Some actually useful information after all of that Lohan business!

Lindsay Lohan Does It Again

Published by:

This is good day to have a blog about drugs, let me tell you.

I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Lindsey Lohan was arrested this morning at around 2 once again under the suspicion of DUI. Again! Rehabbed twice and still getting behind the wheel drunk? Not cool, Lindsay. Not cool at all.

It just gets weirder and weirder though. Apparently Miss Lohan was chasing another car that contained the mother of her assistant. So, we have a recently 21-year old alcoholic behind the wheel, chasing a woman all the way to a police station. She failed that whole, “walk the line” test so she was hauled inside for DUI. But what did they find her pockets? Yep, you guessed it! Cocaine!

This girl is on a serious downward spiral. Part of it is comical because her life is like straight out of a soap opera. However, to be real for a second, it’s really pretty sad. She has a serious problem and every time she gets behind the wheel inebriated, she’s endangering her life as well as everyone around her.

Rehab doesn’t seem to be doing it for her. I guess she’s checked back in though, but not at Promises this time. We all know how well they seem to be working. Just look at Britney Spears! Good Lord!

Hopefully whatever rehab treatment they’ve got “sticks” this time. Girl needs some tough love, that’s for sure. An ankle bracelet isn’t going to cut it. She needs daily drug testing or something. Completely random drug testing and tests for everything, even whippets, or whatever the heck it was she was using in rehab.

Again, good day for blogging, bad day for Lindsay.

These Spiders Are High On Life

Published by:

Well, not really. When I started to watch this video I thought it was serious at first. Ah, the lovely things people do with stock footage on YouTube.

Pretty funny stuff though, don’t you think? Spiders on the rampage! I like the caffeinated spider the best.

I feel slight pangs of guilt at making light of such an important subject. Spider drug use is on the rise, but we can put a stop to it with drug testing kits.

Well that’s enough of that. Have a good rest of the day.

Paula Abdul Does It Again

Published by:

Paula Abdul is denying that she drinks (even a little bit) once again. She seems to be in a never-ending cycle of denial, don’t you think? I know that chronic pain can be debilitating, but she just acts plain old drunk!

Well, regardless of the real reasons for her antics, she’s currently blaming American Idol judge Simon Cowell for the perception that she’s added a little something extra to her trademarked Coke cup.

Apparently, Simon made some remark that the reason she was acting so strangely was that she had something other than Coke in her Coke cup. Ha-ha. Lame joke, but the notion has caught on.

Personally, I doubt some off-hand comment Simon made had anything to do with Paula’s inebriated appearance. Her actions are definitely louder than words could ever be.

I think someone needs analcohol test.
