Parole/Probation Stories TAKE A WHIZ

Yes, there really are fake "accoutrement's" out there to help people pass urine tests. In the "Field" they are called "drops" as in ..."I have to drop someone" meaning, I have to take a urine sample from a client.
While in Saginaw, one of my co-workers detected something rather ODD. The..Um..well...SKIN TONE of the individual did not match the SKIN tone of his whizzzer. I found this article today..somehow..prosecution of the manufacturer's makes me sad. I don't know why.
Reminds me of a Black Client that had VERY VERY long fingernails. At a "drop" for her..she was..well Messing around down there too much...when..OOPS...out pops a Balloon FILLED with..Pee. Evidently NOT hers...and yes...THAT pee in the Balloon was tested--it was "dirty" also. Dirty pee means that drugs have been detected. Not a good thing if you are under Court order NOT to have drugs in your system.

Men guilty of selling prosthetic for drug tests

Two men whose company sold a device known as the Whizzinator that helped men cheat on drug tests have pleaded guilty in federal court in Pittsburgh. George Wills and Robert Catalano each pleaded guilty Monday to two conspiracy counts. They owned the California-based Internet company Puck Technology.

The Whizzinator is a prosthetic penis that comes with a heating element and fake urine. U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan's office says the goal of it and another device called Number 1 was to help people pass drug tests.

The devices were sold from 2005 to 2008. The California men are scheduled to be sentenced in February and face up to eight years in prison, a half-million-dollar fine or both.
