The Whizzinator should be well known by anyone visiting this website. But just in case you’ve been living under a rock, you can find out what it is by visiting their website here.
Are the Whizzinator’s days numbered? I just read a really disturbing article. Two undercover cops in Pennsylvania each ordered one, which sounds like it started a domino effect that ended in federal charges being brought against the president and vice president of the Whizzinator’s parent company, Puck Technology. Holy s***!
The charge is conspiracy to defraud the government – specifically the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, which oversees drug testing programs in federal workplaces. Note that these are federal workplaces we’re talking about here. That covers a lot of workers, but right now this would presumably only affect you if you work for the government. According to the article there’s talk of some kind of plea agreement, and you can bet that it will include some provision for the Whizzinator not being available to federal employees.
If you’ve spent any time on my website at all then you know I’m a huge advocate for the dilution method, for all kinds of reasons. But for people that work in a situation where they can easily get away with passing a drug test using the Whizzinator, then hey – I’m all for it, man. For that reason, I think it should DEFINITELY be an option for people.
I don’t think the Whizzinator is going to disappear overnight or anything like that, but the reason this article is really disturbing to me is that once there’s a case like this that is won in court, then it sets a legal precedent that can be used in other legal cases. It’s like ‘a foot in the door’, so to speak. A door pot smokers do NOT want to go through… The danger is that things like detox drinks might start getting closer inspection too.
Mind you, this all has to do with commercial products being sold to help people pass drug tests. As far as exchanging information about how to pass a drug test goes, that’s not in any danger because of our First Amendment Rights. I mean, telling someone how to pass a urine drug test seems pretty tame as long as it’s still legal to tell people how to make bombs, right?
Anyway, just a heads up if you happen to be a federal employee. It looks like you might have one less option for passing a drug test here pretty soon. If you’ve ever even considered trying the Whizzinator, you might want to make that purchase sooner rather than later.
