Jones Juice May Cause You to Fail a Drug Test-Fiction!
email claiming to be from a "Lt. Col. Hayes" warns not to
drink Jones Juice, a new soft drink that contains hemp seed
oil. Because hemp contains the active ingredient of marijuana,
anyone drinking Jones Juice could test positive in a urine test for
drugs. The email says it is illegal for military members to
drink the stuff, so they should avoid buying it. The email is
accompanied by a picture warning as well..
According to the soft drink manufacturer's website, this is not
true. There are several Jones Juice products, but the drink
with hemp seed is called "DAVE." The
manufacturer says there isn't enough of the substance that is
measured in drug tests (THC) to cause a positive result. They
also cite a research study that concluded that the consumption of
hemp in food products did not ordinarily cause people to fail drug
tests. Additionally, TruthOrFiction.com has not found any
evidence of "Lt. Col. Hayes" or that it is illegal for
military personnel to drink the product.
