Drug Test Urinalysis

Random Drug Testing in the Armed Forces

The United States Armed Forces takes a tough stance against drug use among the ranks. This is due in part to concerns over safeguarding the health of individual service members and officers, as well as for the purposes of maintaining proper discipline and order throughout the different branches of the military. One of the primary aspects of the military's anti-drug campaign is the use of random drug testing of all soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines.

The Department of Defense chemical labs test 720,000 urine samples on a yearly basis, and every individual who is serving on active duty is required to submit to at least one test every year. Members of the Guard and Reserves are expected to be tested once every other year.

The test may detect the presence of a banned substance such as:

  • Marijuana
  • Amphetamine
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • LSD
  • PCP

The results, however, will not be reported as positive unless the substance is found to be above a certain minimum threshold.

Defending You After a Failed Drug Test

In addition to random drug testing, service members will sometimes be ordered to provide a urine sample if they are suspected of being under the influence of drugs. The commanding officer may obtain a warrant in the event that he or she has probable cause to believe that a subordinate is high, or lacking this the service member may be asked to provide consent to submit to testing. A failed drug test, whether it is a random test or if the service member has been caught while under the influence of drugs, can have devastating consequences for his or her career. He or she may be given an administrative discharge or may even be court-martialed and convicted for a drug offense.
