    I love the way you bring in almost half the population, and have them on welfare. It's hilarious. They'll drug test the babies too. I call bull**** on this whole thing, and the govt won't pay $50, they'll pay less because the company will be able to start a separate lab on the money brought in for this.

    At the risk of being a "post Nazi", could you please use the "Reply With Quote" button when replying to specific quotes. I really like your responses, but find them hard to follow contextually if they're separated from the person to which you are responding. Especially so when only a portion of the quote is included.

    Exactly. Some are able to function as users/abusers, some are not. And for some who can function, it's only a matter of time before it catches up to them. Does not change the fact that for many, use/abuse either spirals them into poverty or keeps them there.

    Dilution will work in a home test but labs tend not to fall for it anymore so warm water will work.
