Failed Drug Test From a Kiss?

>> Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Richard Gaquet apparently failed a drug test because of kissing some girl at a nightclub in Miami. This was stated in the report...

"We take into account that the amount of cocaine in the player's body was so small that if he had been tested only a few hours later, his test result would be likely to have been negative," the tribunal stated.

So, I don't know much about positive drug tests and how exactly they determine what exactly is a "small amount," but I would assume its like alcohol and it wears off as the days pass?

The best part of the report...

"We have found the player to be a person who is shy and reserved, honest and truthful and a man of integrity and good character," the tribunal said in its ruling. "He is neither a cheat nor a user of drugs for recreational purposes."

So, a "shy and reserved" individual was out partying it up at a Miami club, making out with random chicks who were using cocaine? Yeah, I know tons of shy and reserved guys who are hittin' up the scene, trying to get into girls pants!

Seriously, this whole situation makes absolutely zero sense to me! I wonder how many people in the everyday workforce are going to use the whole, "making out with some coked out girl at a nightclub" excuse when they fail their drug tests at work in the coming weeks?

I remember being in sixth grade (1998) and a snowboarder at the Winter Olympics tested positive for marijuana. He claimed that he tested positive on account of second-hand smoke. Pretty crafty.

No doubt, man. I'm surprised more people haven't attempted this method.

Still, there have to be a few idiots on that tennis board to believe this nonsense.

He's a smart man. He just played the system like a fiddle.
