Ask a Cop: Will I get in trouble for using fake urine?

Q:Text ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/SolidText ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/Solid$ID/NothingText ColorText Color$ID/NothingText ColorText Color My job has a new drug policy for our drivers they just started this year of random drug screening. Occasionally I smoke marijuana and take my mom’s muscle relaxers for my back pain. I am afraid I am going to lose my job. My friend suggested that I buy some fake urine just in case I get picked. Will I get in trouble for this?

A: Yep, you sure can, but the fake urine seems to be the least of your worries! In Indiana the possession or use of synthetic urine for the purpose of defrauding an alcohol, drug, or urine screening test commits a class B misdemeanor.
