So we are just supposed to accept these figures from a company that has a vested interest in stirring up drug hysteria. Quest is a company that violates citizen's fourth amendment rights for profit! I wish journalists would actually do their job and investigate instead of parroting what they are told by law enforcement and sleazy companies like quest. I would bet that most of the people tested had a legitimate need for pain medications.
