Presumptive Drug Tests
should be aware of the problems of these presumptive tests. They are not reliable and should not be used as evidence to prove a defendant’s guilt. An actual certified forensic lab test of any suspected contraband substance must be required before anyone’s guilt is established beyond a reasonable doubt. When representing clients, I always demand a “real” analysis before determining what strategy to use in defending my clients. Don’t settle for anything short of that level of proof.
