As you can see above, Jolene was not able to produce a "T" line because she is high af. The drug tests we purchased are pretty standard pee tests. Basically you wee into a cup, take the cap off the drug test, and then submerge the little rectangular piece at the end for about ten seconds.
The test we bought for the purposes of this experiment are used specifically to detect THC and nothing else. For context, Jolene’s marijuana consumption is probably slightly, but not much, below average for stoners. She smokes a bowl most days after work, and blazes up two to three times a day on the weekends. Occasionally she’ll have an edible or do a dab, but says she usually sticks to traditional smoking methods—bowls, bongs, and joints. Most of these drinks caution “heavy” users to double their dosage, or go with a more concentrated version, so if you smoke more or less than Jolene, you’re likely to have different results. And none of the results we got here should be considered scientific or at all conclusive. Detox Drink Test #1: Rescue Detox Blueberry Ice Instant Cleansing Energy. First up, we had Jolene try out a 17-ounce bottle of Rescue Detox. According to Karen, the very sweet Applied Sciences customer service lady we reached at the “LIVE SUPPORT” number listed at the bottom of the bottle, Jolene had to avoid eating for five hours before she did the cleanse. Luckily, it was Sunday, so Jolene had just woken up from a four and a half hour nap after spending the morning smoking and eating an entire large portion of Popeye’s mac and cheese, as one does.
Karen told her to drink Rescue an hour before “cleansing time,” then refill the bottle with water twice and drink that within 30 minutes. She was then supposed to pee three times, after which she should be good to go for three to five hours. The drink itself was a bright, neon yellow that looked slightly radioactive. Jolene said it tasted like synthetic blueberries and had a distinct aftertaste. She chugged it down over the course of ten minutes, and then refilled the bottle twice, choking down gulp after gulp of weird-tasting water until her stomach was bursting with 1.5 liters of liquid. After three pees that, in Jolene’s words, “looked like I drank highlighter ink,” she took the test. Jolene tested negative for THC, despite having smoked several pre-noon bowls just hours before. We were both pretty shocked by this turn of events. If you follow the instructions, you might pass your test, but the extreme color of your pee might raise some alarm bells in a clinical setting. Plus, the amount of water you need to drink is a little excessive. “There are tremendous opportunities in ag today, if one is willing to look outside the box for those value-added services and products.” ARROW SEED is firmly rooted in Girardin family. Leonard Girardin moved his family to Custer county in 1946 to manage the Broken Bow Division of a regional seed company he would rename Arrow Seed. has retired from the business; grandson Jim Girardin Jr. is the president of Arrow Seed; and great-grandson Logan Girardin, who joined the family business in March 2015, is a retail sales associate. When the original seed company went bankrupt in 1954, Leonard Girardin recognized the potential of the Broken Bow locale and purchased the division he had been managing. Leonard Girardin owned and operated Arrow Seed until his passing in 1977. At that time Jim Girardin Sr., who came to the business after he graduated from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in 1959, took over. Well, the business and my mom,” said Jim Girardin Jr. said he probably wasn’t fully aware of everything that made up Arrow Seed in the 60s and 70s, but he had a pretty good idea. “I learned to sweep floors and stack seed very well,” he said. Despite his sweeping and stacking skills, Jim Girardin Jr.’s future in the family business seemed somewhat unlikely because of his severe allergies. “I had hay fever pretty bad, and all of the seed dust made working around the plant very difficult back then.” After high school graduation, Jim Girardin Jr. enrolled in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln—a decision undoubtedly influenced by his early experience with the family business and growing up in an ag community. He earned a bachelor’s degree in agronomy in 1983 and went on to complete graduate work in the area of turfgrass research.
Along the way, two of his advisers kept him interested in grasses: Emeriti Professors of Agronomy Lowell Moser, a range scientist, and Robert “Bob” C. “They were solid role models who fostered my interest in grass.” A year working at the Lincoln Country Club during college also helped make Jim Girardin Jr. “That’s really what got me excited about being a golf course superintendent.” From 1985 through 1994, Jim Girardin Jr. was a golf course superintendent at Riverside Golf Club in Grand Island, and it looked like he had established a career for himself apart from Arrow Seed. However, the small-town seed company called him home, and son followed father into the business. After several years working side by side, Jim Girardin Sr. “I would like to thank my father for the opportunity he gave me and for growing the company from the 1970s to the 2000s. He really taught me the meaning of being a seedsman—one who not only sells seed but helps the customer select the best seed for their needs and provides sound advice for using the seed successfully.” Keeping the business on target. In the 1940s and 50s, the agricultural landscape in the area was primarily dryland farming, and there was significant seed production for alfalfa, clovers and grasses. “It made sense to locate a seed company in Custer County,” Jim Girardin Jr.
As irrigation was introduced to the area in the 1960s and 70s, cropping practices and patterns changed and much of that seed production moved away. “Our business really fits the area now because we’re primarily a forage-based company, and the ultimate consumers of our products—the beef cow, the dairy cow, the cow-calf pair—are here,” he said. “The ultimate goal of our business is to provide the farmer/rancher with the best forage options for his or her herd.” To this end, Jim Girardin Jr. noted that “the University of Nebraska Extension has been a tremendous asset both to us and to the Nebraska cattle industry.” He also credited the university’s breeding programs for their instrumental role in developing crops important to Arrow Seed: native grasses, small grains, soybeans and buffalograss.
