I'm getting married on Friday and my call in color is aqua. I would like to have a few drinks to celebrate and we have shuttles and hotel rooms, so no worries about driving. Does anyone know if the JAMS week starts on Sunday? If my color is called earlier that week, will I be okay?

I have had the color aqua for the past 5 weeks. They never reveal the week start, however, I have heard from one source there that it started on Wednesday and ended the following Thursday (8 day week). So far, I have only been called on Wednesday (twice), Thursday (twice), and Friday (once, which was actually on the 8th day). Good luck.

Hi. New to Jams. I'm not seeing anyone else with the color Mint. Does anyone know how often it's called?

I heard mint was three times a month - once a week for three weeks and one week off. Just don't count on what they "generally"
do because then they change the game on you just to keep you off guard. I'm once a week but have hone up to 10 ten without having to go in. Then again, I've also been called twice in a row. They make the rules and like to change them on you just to keep you off guard. Sure works for me. Want this over & done so I can't take the chance.

Does Jams test for alochol is the urine on the standard urine test? If it does what is the point of blowing and dropping
Can anyone answer this question please? I am wondering this too. I know alcohol doesn't stay in urine past 24 hours anyway, but why would they give a breathalyzer and also test alcohol in urine? Makes no sense.

Also...just signed up with JAMS this past Monday, anyone know when was the last time Rose was called? Trying to figure out the pattern, it could creep up any day now, but there's a possibility it might have gotten called just before I signed up which could give me another week, since it only gets called 2x a month.

Just failed my 1st pbt after going to jams for alchohol & drug testing for over a year! I only had a few months to go on probation & was finally reduced to only having to go to JAMS once a month! Does anyone know what kinda trouble I am in store for? Will my probation officer violate me automatically? This BLOWS!!! I am scared to death!

Today is Saturday the 21st of september, 2013 and the jams call in number is not working for me. I've also tried calling specific locations to see what's going on and it gives me the same machine response. Does anyone know what's going on? Or if this is happenig for others. The Internet updated the colors but I can't get through on the phone for the colors. The site does not have my color on it but I always check both sources because I've my color come up online but not the call in number which is horrible because not everyone has both sources and it can ruin people's lives. It's not good because you basically have to record the colors on the phone and screen shot online everyday in order to prove your color was never called and that's why if you miss. But please let me know if anyone knows what's going on because technically no one should go test if the line is messed up and not giving colors but I'm sure they would just tell you that you should have checked online but I know not everyone has access to it. Ive been doing this for a while and suggests that everyone checks both sources and takes proof of everyday you check them if you want to be safe. Thank you

They have a test called an ETG at JAMS that can test alcohol in your urine up to 48 hours. I had a friend who was on holiday testing who went to see his PO two days after being tested. He had drank the night before and she ordered a surprise ETG, he failed and she violated him. JAMS doesnt test your urine for alcohol in their normal urine tests unless the judge or you PO called for it (youll know because it costs more than the regular urine test), they mainly use the ETG for people who have to blow everyday.

Mint is a random three times a month. Just like me!! I posted a few weeks back when mint was called to help you. Good news is mint is done being called for month as it was called wed. at noon. Send me a message if more questions...this is serious stuff I believe!

When you fail a test do they tell you right then and there? how does that work?

Also, I went there the other day cuz my color was called and they had me re-drop bc my urine was too white! Can you believe that shit?? All I did was drink a lot of water. It's a bunch of BS. What now i'm supposed to drink water?

So just to clarify, they don't test alcohol in ur urine? There was one guy in front of me who was there for a urine test and all he did was the breathalyzer, paid $4 and left. I pay $9 to do the urine test, and they also give me a breathalyzer.

Black is usally called 2 or 3 times a month (30 days) only 4 times once which was in July, probably because 4th of July is a big partying holiday. Pretty random on the days. Good luck all colors, JAMS Sucks!

Thanks for the info!

I've just been recording the days, so I can kind of plan my days and work schedule as conveniently as possible... Since I started, mint has been called on 9/18, 9/25, & today 10/3. 3 weeks in a row- does that generally mean that we'll get next week off?

If anyone could help me I would GREATLY APPRECIATE it.....I was recently put back on black, 9/19? i believe....I know black was called either 9/19 or 9/20, which would have been ONE and then very soon after...maybe 9/25 ish?! so i have been twice since the 19th....Im almost positive I have called EVERY day, and haven't heard black again since the 9/25 Call....Starting to get paranoid now that I somehow forgot to call and missed one.... Does anyone know how often BLACK is called?! Or when the last time it was called?! Im freaking out!!please help!!!

Not really! All mint means is it is called three times during month. Not much rhyme or reason, thus its called random. Today they called mint again so this means one more time between 10-9-13 and 10-31-13. This is the closest they have ever called since I've been going to Jams. Some months its every 10 days etc. always changing pattern. FYI
