LSD testing?
That's new. You still have to pretty much be tripping for it to work, less than 5 days.

That's funny.
FTFA; "Before those incidents, Marine Corps officials would have required probable cause for search rather than relying on random screening, according to the service."

I guess times have changed.

I can't count on both hands the times I was required to piss on demand. With a witness.
Both as an enlisted soldier and an officer.
They tested for everything there was a test for.

3am in the barracks with the MPs,dogs and the meds to take the test with an officer as witness.

As an officer, we were called in, more than once, and read the order for a total unit test.
You ever seen a Major pull out his dick and piss in a cup? I have. That man was not happy, to say the very least.
Nobody left that room until they gave a sample.

Army Aviation  don't fark around.
It was always support that came up dirty. Maybe a jr. crew chief, or even a CW1,  on occasion.

On the ground it was a completely different story. The shart was everywhere.

The U.S military has serious problems and drug use is just the tip of the iceberg.

I had the same experience.

We didn't care, it was the University of Science and Modern Chemistry, after all.

In the bad old days of the cold war, most of us avoided the crappy German hash - we were tested on a regular basis. Of course, they ignored the fact the troops drank like fish. We'd be out in the field, and would pull up in a track at the local small village Edeka and load up on Jager and cases of beer on a regular basis. Hell, farmers would wave us into their sugar beet fields. They'd give us beer and all kinds of food, then later get a nice check from Uncle Sam for maneuver damage.

That's marijuana and cocaine. The only test I was aware of for LSD was a spinal tap and checking the CSF. That's why it was a drug of choice for people who got tested frequently.
Looks like the urine test has been around awhile but maybe just got more reliable.

Achieving altered states of consciousness is as old as dirt.

Navy 80s-90s Moffett Field next to Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View CA. Many Dead shows and we only did LSD and shrooms because there were no tests that could detect it then. Good times

Soooo...armpit and pubic hairs. Nice. That will feel pleasurable to rip those out.

But if cretinbob is right, they won't find it there.

Well you got a point but maybe Marines shave those too.. nobody wants crabs.
 
2020-12-02 12:17:27 AM  
FWIW, I shave my armpits. just with a #1 guard, I'm not a girl... but it really cuts down on stink and stank over the summer when I ride the high mileage on the bicycle and in the winter it's just habit so it's not a big thing come spring. I don't shave my legs BTW, I just deal with the bandage tear off in the chance I go down.

I was Cavalry (ground) and can confirm I did more drugs in my 6 year enlistment than I will probably do combined for the rest of my life. They liked knocking people down to E1 though.

What's the solution to this striking resurgence of acid use within the ranks? At least one Marine officer made the argument that, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, at least in terms of microdosing for matters of intelligence analysis.

Sounds like at least one Marine officer wants to make DAMN sure he's selected for every "random" screening possible for the rest of his career...

So I guess if you have a farkup in your unit you can get rid of him by slipping him microdoses until testing catches him? A shiatty thing to do indeed but farkups are too dangerous to keep around.

Indeed, dozens of sailors assigned to the nuclear reactor department aboard the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier were punished in connection to an LSD ring aboard the vessel in 2018.
And last year, 14 airmen responsible for protecting the Pentagon's nuclear missile silos at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming were disciplined for dropping acid between shifts.



Good lord.  Nuclear technology and acid!

The system is down.  The system is down.

My dad likes to tell stories of one such farkup in their unit. A few of those said farkup thinking it was a good idea to A) scratch the back of his head with the barrel of a fully loaded Uzi, with his finger on the trigger and the safety off (when the entire unit was busy practicing with them on said firing range), and B) thinking the fired but unexploded mortar shell he picked up from the firing range would make an awesome souvenir and stuffing it into his backpack.

Where are they getting enough LSD for it to become a problem? That shiat dried up.
 
2020-12-02 1:56:49 AM  
 Man what I need now is a whole sheet of acid. Stuck in the house mostly, hemorrhaging cash...I could use a day off from this planet.  It's the best drug I've ever done.

Yeah, I haven't done ecstasy, coke, whippets, oxy, pcp-laced weed, whatever those damn red pills were, absinthe, lsd, or uncut opium since I got out.

What the hell am I doing with my life?

Where's the HERO tag, subby? These fine humans enlisted to be doing acid for the national interest. They signed a blank check to Uncle Sam so that YOU don't have to.

That's what great about being young. You're up for dropping acid pretty much any time. On the way to school? Sure! About to do a 40 mile hike carrying a 75 pound backpack in 110 degree heat at boot camp? Sure!

God I miss that.

farking hypocrites. much LSD testing has been done on enlisted personnel without their consent or knowledge. the kids are alright. let them run amuck high on sunshine. you're only young once.

As a Navy veteran who tripped acid in 7 different countries while serving (including once on board - but not while on duty), I can tell you right now why dudes are dosing.
It's cheap, easy to transport and hide on the ship, leaves your system very fast (hard to detect), and you get a hell of an experience.

You can't generally send someone booze or Weed in a Christmas card. I received half a sheet of acid in one.
Some things never change.

The military is tired and broke down. We have been in a constant deployment rotation for a generation.
The troops are tired and beat down. Entire systems, units and commands  are resorting to cannibalism to meet basic mission requirements.
We have retention problems at ALL levels despite generous bonuses.
We have a gang problem, a white nationalist problem and a evangelical problem.


We have a drug problem, alcohol problem, a suicide problem, a domestic abuse problem, a divorce problem,
we have a post discharge,  homeless, mental illness problem.

Thanks for coming back and taking the time.
It's obviously a pain point for you.
If the link is still alive when you get this, I think all of your points are clear to me except 1) the cannibalism (do you mean working people to the bone?) 2) retention (are people quitting before end of contract? And if yes, how easy is it to do so? I figured people would just face the MPs if they didn't follow orders)

Much obliged.
