Once the paper is tacked down on one end, you can work your way down the rest of the seam by tucking and sealing the joint to the end. Finally, pack the end of the joint to help ensure an even burn. A pen is great, but you can use just about anything. Some good options if you’re on the go: the tip of your shoelace, the drawstring on your hoodie, or a small stick. If you’re not planning on sparking your joint right away, you may want to close the tip with a twist.
Step 7: Enjoy (and innovate!) Other ways to roll a joint. Some people have even transformed joint rolling into an art all on its own, rolling their cannabis into a unique mix of functional origami. Another trick is to use a dollar bill to help roll a joint. Simply fold a dollar bill in half and put your ground weed in it. Roll it back and forth, slip a rolling paper behind it, roll it up, and give it a lick. Other joint variants you can try rolling are a cross joint (two joints crossed in the middle, giving you three ends to light), a pinner (a thin joint), or an L joint or tulip, which have extra amounts of weed stuck on the end.

Employee’s Negligence Claim Against Laboratory Dismissed Where Drug Test Results Were Accurate. Commercial laboratories owe a duty of care to drug testing subjects and the failure to follow established procedures may be a violation of that duty in certain circumstances, according to a recent decision by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. However, given that the employee could not demonstrate that his drug test results were inaccurate, his case was dismissed. Florentino Rodriguez, a long-term employee of the District of Columbia, was required to submit to a random drug test pursuant to the District of Columbia’s Mandatory Drug and Alcohol Testing Program for Safety-Sensitive Positions. Defendant LabCorp certified his test results as positive for the presence of marijuana metabolites, and he subsequently was terminated from his position as an Urban Park Ranger. While Rodriguez did not deny that he used marijuana, he filed suit against LabCorp, alleging that the laboratory failed to follow government-mandated drug testing procedures and therefore improperly reported his positive result to his employer. Specifically, he alleged LabCorp violated the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations (which incorporate the United States Department of Transportation drug testing provisions), by failing to confirm, in writing, whether Rodriguez had a positive initial urine screen. According to the regulations, a laboratory can only report a drug test result as positive if the specimen exceeds the “cutoff concentrations” for both the initial screen and the confirmatory test. The cutoff concentration for an initial screen of marijuana is 50 ng/mL. Rodriguez claimed the report submitted by LabCorp to his employer failed to indicate whether LabCorp complied with these procedural requirements. Therefore, LabCorp “denied [him] a fair test in compliance with . government procedures.” In deciding Rodriguez’s negligence claim, the Court held that testing laboratories owe testing subjects a duty of care, as it “is entirely foreseeable that an employee who submits a specimen for drug testing will suffer adverse effects to his or her employment if the laboratory erroneously reports a positive result.” However, the Court declined to decide the “open question” whether that duty requires strict compliance with quality control procedures. Instead, it dismissed Rodriguez’s negligence claim on the basis that the report stated clearly that LabCorp conducted an initial screen of Rodriguez’s urine specimen and that such screen exceeded the 50 ng/mL cutoff concentration. Therefore, there was no actual violation of procedure and Rodriguez’s claim could not withstand LabCorp’s motion to dismiss. Hi everyone, first i'd like to thank those of you who took the time to read the post and help me out. I have quit smoking about a month now and recently I have found out that I have to take a urine drug test at Labcorp on 5/13/13. By the time my drug test date comes, it would mean that I have not used for about 5-6 weeks. I have bought an in home drug test from CVS called First Check Home Drug Test and absolutely failed. The line that shows that a person is negative was completely blank. I have been told that these in home drug tests has a cut off of about 50 ng/ml. it says that the Labcorp cutoff is 15 ng/ml., but the standard drug screening cut off at Labcorp is at 50 ng/ml. Does that mean that even if my ng/ml level is lower than 50 by the time I take the test, they will still do the more in depth testing with the gc/ms to confirm the results? Side Note: Before I stopped smoking, I have been smoking a gram everyday for about 6-7 months of the most potent stuff I was able to get my hands on.
Recently I started drinking lots of fluids, taking 2x 250mg so that it = 500mg niacin pills made by NatureMade (starting taking pills on 5/2/13 which was yesterday), and some cardio exercises (started on 5/2/13 which was yesterday). I am not skinny by any means and have a really slow metabolism, which is why i started doing the cardio to help burn off some fat.
If anyone has any information about Labcorp or any helpful tips please reply, I would really appreciate it. Once again, thank you to all of you that took the time to read this thread.
