  • Tim McKinney's papers only say he was clean and sober long enough to pass a pee test. It says nothing about 5 minutes after the test or today. You can not take one point in time and extrapolate it to eternity. I have no idea if Tim McKinney is clean and sober today or not but your rationale is absurd.

  • I appreciate your reading my blog and commenting; I never know if folks see these things or if they just go into the wind.

    You are more or less correct about the usefulness of drug tests since usefulness varies from about 12 hours to 45 days depending on a lot of factors including amounts ingested, type of substance, and the physical characteristics of the person being tested. Courts, apparently, find them useful since they rely on them heavily in cases such as McKinney's. Similarly, sports teams, airline companies...etc.

    Ultimately, it becomes a matter of trust. Do you trust the drug test process? Do you trust the person being tested?

    Anyway, thanks again for reading the blog and for your very good comment.
