Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you today. I bring nearly 20 years of experience in various legal disciplines, including JAG.There is no legal requirement to notify them. The testing that is done on a regular basis for drugs only tests for metabolites for recreational drug use.For them to test for higher levels of testosterone (something that they can do) requires a command directed, special protocol even obtain a test result showing higher rates of testosterone. That can only be done based on probable cause.
Then, if you have a prescription, you'll essentially have evidence that the use is not "unlawful" for purposes of prosecution.
What defines probable cause in this instance? So if I have a prescription by a certified medical professional I am covered should they ask any questions?
Lastly just to ensure I don't have to come back later. As long as it is a legitimate prescription from a legitimate DR. They could not question the relevancy of the prescription? And even if they did, I would not be in violation of ucmj? And worst case they could require me to stop taking the medication?
