"The test wouldn’t be used to finger any single person as a drug user."

I`m glad they can`t finger any single person with that test. Makes me feel a lot safer about my drug use.

yeah, another waste to america`s tax money..no no it cant be used to fix drated up roads... it goes to idiotic studies like this to see whihc state had more drugs in their poo...come on! its obvious rich areas have lots of drugs... it usually has to be bought by a supplier... and a poor city/ state wont have lots of $ on hand to buy drugs... come on people... poor people dont do drugs.. they sell it to those richie boys..

Excellent for completely useless, but relatively accurate, statistics about community wide drug use. Maybe when they start seeing real numbers about marijuana use, and take the demographics of the are into consideration, things will change. It will be a real eye-opener to some people when gated, secured, rich as God communities show high percentages of marijuana use.

So much for it just being the low-lifes.

They said they can`t tell how many people in a community are using drugs, so it`s actually really pointless.
