Synthetic urine ban bill heads to Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – The Indiana House has voted to send a bill banning the sale of synthetic urine to Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb.

The bill by Rep. Greg Beumer makes it a misdemeanor for store owners to knowingly sell products designed to fraudulently pass drug or alcohol tests. The House approved the bill 94-0 Monday.

The Modoc Republican’s bill previously cleared the Senate in a unanimous vote.

Beumer says the measure is needed to ferret out workers with drug problems. Current law forbids using substances to falsify a drug test, but not the sale of the products used to do so.

The approved changes remove a list of 12 substances and define them as products added to human urine for the purpose of defrauding a test.
