Cut-Off Points for Drugs

Cut-off levels are set for drug tests so that employees can benefit from the doubt if a small amount of a drug metabolite is found. Cut-off levels are usually given in nanograms (ng) per milliliter or picograms (pg) per milligram for urine and oral fluid tests. Cut-off levels are usually given in picograms (pg) per milligram for hair tests.

Marijuana is a drug that changes your thinking since it includes THC. (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol). It also has cannabidiol and other compounds in it. It's a popular medicine to calm the body and mind and relieve stress. But if you use it often, significantly as a youngster or teen, it can hurt you.

Medical uses: Cannabis can treat glaucoma and seizures, among other things. It can also help ease pain and make chemotherapy patients less sick and less likely to throw up.

You can smoke it, vape it, or eat it. It can also be bought in tinctures, lotions, patches, and dab pens, among other ways. Cocaine is a potent drug that can make you physically and mentally dependent. It can also make people's lives and the lives of their families and loved ones very hard.

It can cause heart attacks, strokes, seizures, and breathing problems that could be fatal. It can also lead to various mental health problems, such as depression.

Cocaine powder is often mixed with many other things by people who sell it. These things can influence the way it looks, smells, or taste. Laundry detergent, sugar, flour, talcum powder, cornstarch, and amphetamines are some of the most specific things used with cocaine.

Dealers may also blend cocaine with fentanyl, which is a synthetic opioid that is far stronger than cocaine. This makes it more likely that someone will overdose on cocaine and die from it.

Methamphetamine is a psychostimulant drug that is against the law. It makes people feel pleased and gives them more energy. It is a potent stimulant that you can smoke, inject, or sniff.

Meth is a powerful and very addicting narcotic that can cause mental and physical dependence. It can also be harmful and lead to long-term health concerns like memory loss, sadness, irritability, and violent conduct.

It can be produced from many chemicals in the house, such as drain cleaner, battery acid, paint thinner, and lighter fluid. Meth creates a high lasting for hours when smoked or injected. Users often take more substance before the first dose wears off to keep the high going. This is called "binge and crash," and it's not good for your health.

Prescription opioids, also called painkillers, are strong medications doctors provide to people with moderate to severe pain. They can be addicting, and if you don't use them right, they can cause severe health and mental health problems.

These medications interact with proteins in nerve cells all over the body called opioid receptors. When these receptors are activated, they send out a signal that stops pain signals from getting through.

Opioid drugs are often given to people with long-term pain, such as after surgery or an injury. They can assist in easing pain and calming down anxious or sad sensations.

They can also be deadly if taken wrong or mixed with alcohol or other drugs. Too much of a drug can kill you. Benzodiazepines are a series of medications used to treat many problems, such as insomnia and anxiety disorders. They are harmless and are often used in both medicines and for fun.

They affect the central nervous system, making you sleepy, relaxing your muscles, and lowering your anxiety. But they can also get you hooked and be deadly if you misuse them.

People can get hooked on benzodiazepines in the long run. They should quit taking them carefully and with a doctor watching. If you quit using them suddenly, you can have withdrawal symptoms. They can be pretty harmful and possibly kill you.
