Prop 203 Gives Medical Marijuana The Green Light
Arizona Proposition 203, "a ballot measure asking the state's voters to legalize medical marijuana," just barely passed by less than .1% recently. This new law enables physicians to prescribe two and a half ounces of marijuana every two weeks to "patients with serious debilitating illnesses, including HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, Alzheimer's, Crohn's disease, cancer and multiple sclerosis. Patients who live more than 25 miles away from a licensed dispensary are allowed to grow up to 12 plants in their home as long as they have a permit and doctor's consent." Read the full story here.
Question: Can you direct me to the procedures for a torn seal during a DOT Urine collection?


Occasionally, the tamper-evident label/seal provided  with the CCF will not properly adhere to the specimen bottle because of  environmental conditions (e.g., moisture, temperature, specimen bottle  material) or may be damaged or broken during the collection process. When this  occurs, the collector should use the following corrective procedures:
(a)  If the seal is broken while being removed from the chain of custody form or  during the application of the first seal on the primary bottle, the collector  should transfer the information to a new CCF and use the seals from the second  form.
(b) If one seal is already in place on a bottle and the second seal  is broken while being removed from the CCF or is broken during application on  the second bottle or while the employee is initialing either seal, the  collector should initiate a new CCF and provide an appropriate comment on the  “Remarks” line in Step 5. The seals from the second CCF should be placed  perpendicular to the original seals to avoid obscuring information on the  original seals and must be initialed by the employee (both sets of employee  initials should match). The collector should draw a line through the Specimen  ID number and bar code (if present) on the original seals to ensure that the  laboratory does not use that number for reporting the results. The collector  should not pour the specimen into new bottles.
(c) In both cases, the  collector should ensure that all copies of the original (first) chain of  custody form are destroyed or disposed of properly (e.g., shredded, torn into  pieces). (DOT's Specimen Collection Guidelines)
