State of Rhode Island Drug Testing News
According to the Clinical Services of Rhode Island, substance abuse seems to be prevalent and problematic in Rhode Island. As each year passes, is it clear that opioid addiction has become an epidemic as it continues to rise. Research reveals that approximately 40 percent of high school students in Rhode Island admitted to using marijuana in a 2011 survey according to the Department of Health and Human Services. To no surprise, in 2008 Rhode Island took the lead in the United States for rates of marijuana (10.3 percent) and alcohol use (63.1 percent).
However, in 2015 WPRI News reported that over 45 percent of the 258 drug-related overdose deaths that occurred involved fentanyl, which is an opioid that is high up on the opioid epidemic chain in the crisis America is in.
Marijuana in Rhode Island
States began softening their stances on marijuana in the 1990â€™s, during which California became the first state to legalize the medical use of the herb. Other states followed suit and also decriminalized the possession of small amounts for personal use (typically punished by a fine).
Eventually, a few states legalized the sale and use of recreational marijuana, contrary to federal drug prohibition laws (although the federal government has a â€œhands-offâ€ approach to states that have chosen to legalize marijuana). Curiously, federal law still classifies marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance â€” alongside heroin and other hard drugs â€” despite public opinion and published studies on its medical efficacy.
Marijuana laws vary greatly from one state to the next, with some states even imposing prison sentences for the possession of relatively small amounts. There are also broad differences in regulations among the states that have legalized medical and/or recreational use of the drug.

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.
