Dear JACUSTOMER - Generally they use a urine test but it can vary among POs so there's no guarantee that a urine test will be used in all cases. Hair follicles are also used. I'm not certain what difference it makes in a given situation but the PO is permitted to use any acceptable means to test for drugs.
