I have good news for the hundreds of people who have visited this site looking for information on mephedrone testing.
As I thought, instant, onsite MCat testing kits are not yet available. They are being developed, and I will let everyone know as soon as they come onto the market, but for now at least, if your employer uses the instant urine testing method, any MCat in your system will not show up on a drugs test.
(Your employer may use oral swabs, or send urine samples off to a laboratory – and MCat may be detectable using these methods. But if your employer takes a urine sample and gives an immediate result, you shouldn’t be providing a positive test – for now at least.)
However, this information is only useful if you are sure that it is actually MCat you have been taking – if it was different drug such as amphetamine, you would still give a positive result for this drug. And so I think I have managed to source some kits which test the drug itself, and tell you whether you have bought mephedrone, methylene, MDPV – or something else entirely. Whilst these won’t be able to tell you if you are clear of the drug before going back to work, they will be able to tell you if what you are taking is in fact mephedrone, or something else. So then you will know whether you will give an MCat-positive swab or lab result, or not.
Another good thing about these tests is they will allow you to test your drugs before you take them. If you have taken MCat before, you think you know how it affects you, and want the same effects, the safest way to take it again is to test a tiny sample to see if it is what you think it is. That way, you know what to expect, and you know what the potential side-effects may be and how to manage them. This also indicates that your supplier is probably trustworthy as they are selling what they claim to be selling. This makes the whole process safer, and less likely to put you into a state you weren’t expecting.
For information about the expected effects and side-effects of MCat, you can look at Frank or Know The Score. If you are in the UK, you can ring a confidential free phone number between 8am and 11pm (0800 5875879), but if you have serious concerns about the health of someone on mephedrone, you need to ring an ambulance immediately.
And bear in mind, if you are getting wasted at the weekend, not sleeping or eating, and turning up to work in such a state that you can’t do your job, you will still be subject to disciplinary procedures. There’s nothing wrong with having a good time – but it ain’t worth losing your livelihood for. And if you do have an accident at work and require a medical, any substances you have taken will still be identifiable via a blood test – so make sure you eat, sleep, rehydrate and straighten your head out before work.
The tests have been sourced from the same supplier as the Police, so I have every faith in their validity, but once I have set up an online check-out I will post again. In the meantime, if you are interested in purchasing the tests, or you want to know about testing kits for other drugs, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I promise to treat your information with the upmost respect and confidentiality, and will answer any queries you have as best I can.
