The Various Substances of the 8 Panel Drug Test

What's included in the 8 panel urine test? Methaqualone (Quaaludes) are hypnotic sedatives that are highly addictive. As the individual develops a tolerance, they will need more and more to achieve the same high, meaning they’ll eventually take dangerously high dosages. They were common club drugs and recreational drugs in the 1960s and 1970s but are no longer legally manufactured in this country. They were commonly known as ludes, disco biscuits, 714s, lemmons, lemmon 7s, mandrakes, mandies, sopers, or soaps.

This substance is dangerous because of its highly addictive attributes. Also, as the individual develops a tolerance, they will need more and more to achieve the same high, meaning they’ll eventually take dangerously high dosages.

Benzodiazepines are the most commonly prescribed depressant medications in the United States. Doctors often prescribe these to treat anxiety and sleeping troubles, as well as seizures and stress reactions like panic attacks and muscle spasms; but irresponsible usage can cause serious damage. Common benzodiazepines that are prescribed and include Xanax, Valium, and Rohypnol.

Particularly with the opioid crisis this country is in the midst of, the probability is higher than ever that there is some sort of drug use happening in your place of business. Furthermore, the changing marijuana laws have created a very gray area, where employers — and employees — don’t always know what their responsibilities and right are.

The price tag for not knowing your responsibilities and rights is a steep one. Drug use in the workplace costs employers billions of dollars every year in accidents, lost productivity, employer turnover, crime, absenteeism, and workers compensation claims. Can you afford this?
