Can anyone out there shed more light on the validity of the Compulsory Drugs Testing Program. I am particularly annoyed by its existance. Not that I use illegal substances, its just that one can fail a BFT (I am old school) and get in more trouble (Remedial PT, interview without coffee etc), than if you were to fail a CDT test. I have personal experience of a unit that back in 19** had several failures on a random CDT. Two individuals in particular, failed the test. One was below the "cut - off" level for the permitted amount of "dope" in his urine. The other was way above, having smoked the night before. A "cut-off" level similiar to the alcohol drink-drive level principle. Why are we not told about this "cut-off" level in drugs presentations? The individual (Soldier A) who was below the cut-off level recieved a slap to the wrist. The individual (Soldier B) who was above ......a mere three month warning order. I feel this is contray to CDT information that says that if we are caught we will be discharged. Some three weeks later both Soldier A and B were late for PT. Soldier A was jailed. Soldier B was let off, I enquired as to why and was given the reply that if he was jailed he would be discharged because he was on a three month bender. I thought that was the whole point of three month benders, to remove people with discipline problems? We were briefed not to make comment about Soldier A or B due to potential repercussions. A few days after the CDT another Soldier in the section failed a BFT and ended up on remedial PT for nearly six months, having been publicly disgraced and ridiculed in front of the regiment by the CSM and his own section OC. In comparison, why dont we then have remedial drugs training? What are your thoughts on the whole subject?
