State of Ohio Drug Testing News
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Ohio ranked as one of the top five states with the highest rates of deaths relating to opioid overdoses in 2016. Research revealed that there were over 3,600 deaths, a rate of 32.9 deaths per 100,000 persons, relating to opioid overdoses, which is a shocking rate of double the national average of only 13.3 deaths per 100,000 persons. Not to mention, the heroin-related deaths also jumped from 355 in 2012 to 1,478 in 2016.
According to the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy, in August of 2017 new rules went into effect that limit opioid prescriptions for patients, generally a seven-day supply for adults and five days for anyone under 18, in order to help decrease the dependence on these drugs, as well as to dramatically decrease the amount of deaths being caused by opioid prescriptions.
The possession, sale, trafficking, and cultivation of marijuana is illegal in most states, although the federal government still considers it illegal throughout the nation. In addition, a growing number of states is allowing for the medicinal use of marijuana by those who have obtained a physician’s recommendation.
Recreational use of marijuana remains illegal (but decriminalized) in Ohio, although the state does allow medical use of the herb. House Bill 523, which took effect on Sept. 8, 2016, established the basic framework for medical marijuana in the state. While there are no dispensaries set up, eligible patients my obtain a state-issued patient identification card to use as an affirmative defense.
Ohio has substantially loosened its marijuana laws in general. The possession of less than 100 grams (roughly 3.5 ounces) of cannabis, or the transfer of less than 20 grams (i.e. giving it so someone else), are considered “minor misdemeanors.” This means these are not jailable offenses, but are punishable by up to $150 in fines and a possible driver’s license suspension for a period of six months to five years.

What is a drug test?
A drug test is a technical analysis of a biological specimen, for example urine, hair, blood, breath, sweat, and/or oral fluid/saliva-to determine the presence or absence of specified parent drugs or their metabolites. Major applications of drug testing include detection of the presence of performance enhancing steroids in sport, employers and parole/probation officers screening for drugs prohibited by law (such as cannabis, cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin) and police officers testing for the presence and concentration of alcohol (ethanol) in the blood commonly referred to as BAC (blood alcohol content). BAC tests are typically administered via a breathalyzer while urinalysis is used for the vast majority of drug testing in sports and the workplace. Numerous other methods with varying degrees of accuracy, sensitivity (detection threshold/cutoff), and detection periods exist. A drug test may also refer to a test that provides quantitative chemical analysis of an illegal drug, typically intended to help with responsible drug use.
