would have been helpful for them to order an etg test if i had consumed eh ? has been almost 10 days back now thank you all for your posts .
ETG test are too expensive for a probation office to administer frequently, which is one of the reasons you have to go to a private lab.
Hope you are able to explain the situation to a Judge.
Best of Luck.
i thought they were only around 35 dollars but its been way to long now
The cost of a 5 panel drug screen is usually in the $35 range in my experience with referring clients to different labs. However, ETG testing is a slightly different animal, as not every lab offers the testing. In my experience ETG testing is usually more than $35 per test.
Further, from a probation office / court administration perspective - $35 per test is VERY expensive. Especially when the probation office is in charge of looking over the shoulder of a few hundred individuals - the dollars add up quickly.
Either way, I hope your issue has or will work itself out in the end.
