In a custody/visitation dispute, if one parent is accused of abusing illegal drugs, then both parents are required to be tested. Since W.'s long-term drug use is one of my grounds for supervised visitation, the court system has ordered that we both submit to a 90-day hair follicle test.
Drug testing is a real possibility in any case involving children. To be frank, this part freakin' sucks. I said goodbye to $60 and a small chunk of my hair, and I wasn't doing drugs in the first place!
