Howzit fellow stoners!! This is my first time on a 420 forum or anything like this. I've never shared anything via forum/blog before, but after the mindfuck situation I've been in, its necessary. I feel it is my civic duty to warn, inform, and advocate so I can potentially save someone else from my nightmare. Backstory- although probably not necessary. I'm originally from the east coast. My husband and I were working and living in NYC in fast paced, very demanding jobs when we decided to up and quit. Despite making loads of money, we sold everything we owned and left our boozy, ritzy, status oriented lives behind us. We lived out of our Ford Explorer while we camped and hiked across the country until we took a one way flight to Oahu, HI. Finding jobs hasn't been easy. We've been here for 7 months now living with a college roommate. Once we got jobs, the mindfuck began. (Mind you, my hubby and I had been habitually smoking weed for the 5+ years we were working and living in NY.) Not only does it seem like here in HI EVERYONE blazes but its also true that Here in HI EVERYONE does drug screens. I work in the business field and my hubby works in the healthcare field. It doesn't matter. There will be pre-employment drug tests almost 100%. For any other mainlanders who think HI is lax as hell, its not. Anyway as soon as I heard that the job I wanted was going to do a urinalysis, I put down my beloved bowl, bought myself some time and tried to cleanse. Well guess what, its like impossible to get clean from weed. (How FUCKED up is it that the LEAST dangerous drug takes the longest to get out of your system?!?!?!) I did some extensive research. Upon coming to the conclusion that I did, this is what I tried. Since I bought myself some time, I tried to cleanse by drinking A LOT of water and green tea, exercising like crazy (running, pushups, hot yoga, swimming), and stayed away from fatty foods. After two weeks I bought an at home pee test and tested Positive. This crazy girl thought it would be that easy and quick. Since I only know stoners on the island, using someone's clean pee didn't seem like an option. I resorted to buying several 3 oz bottles of QuickFix 6.1. If you haven't heard of this product, google it. It has rave reviews. I read one review after another of how QuickFix is a miracle solution for pot heads everywhere who need their privacy protected due to their harmless habit. I thought "YESSSS THANK THE UNIVERSE" This shit is made in a lab and contains all the ingredients in urine including specific gravity, creatine, urea, and is balanced for pH. The bottle comes with a temperature gauge on it along with a heating pad so messing up the temperature (which is a sure fire way to fail) is fool-proof. I agonized and agonized and quite frankly was nervous as hell to use it but I tried to trust what I read online. I even called the number on the back of the box and read the nice lady my batch number. She told me it has a shelf life of 4 years, and that I'm "good to go". Got there for my test at a Diagnostic Laboratory Services, INC location. Gave them my paperwork and I proceeded with the test. I had to wash my hands first, empty my pockets/leave my purse, and not flush the toilet when I was done. They did not watch me (they usually don't for pre-employment drug screens). Despite shaky hands I poured it into the cup and then pissed in the toilet for real. I realized I forgot to shake the bottle before pouring which they recommend, but I saw my temperature read 97 which is perfect so I thought, voila! donezo! WELP my miracle solution turned into my worse nightmare. Quickfix 6.1 failed me. Just heard from my employer that the lab found my sample as synthetic urine. This is literally the biggest let down ever. Good thing I stopped smoking when I did and haven't blazed since because now I'm back in the job search and will try to pass it the good ole fashioned way. This has literally been the most stressful, discouraging time for me and I don't even have the option of smoking a bowl to relax. Guys, please reconsider before buying/using Quickfix Synthetic Urine, atleast in the state of HI. I would never want anyone to have to experience the disappointment I did. Aloha and Goodluck!
