Default False positive drug test while awaiting sentencing

My brother is waiting for his sentencing court. Today his PO told him his drug test was positive for meth. He absolutely, positively did not use. What should he do?

It depends on the rules there. In federal supervised release, I also tested positive for meth in the "cup", which I have never used in my life. My PO had me drive home and return with all of my RX bottles, photocopied them, but then they were also required to submit the sample to a real lab, which eventually cleared me.

He needs to file an appeal of the positive test. Since he is awaiting sentencing, get his lawyer involved too.

1) let his attorney be aware of the situation
2) let the attorney take steps to request confirmation through GCMS
3) spend the money on an immediate test with a private facility to include hair testing
4) quit taking over-the-counter allergy medications since the pseudoephedrine likely triggered the alleged false positive...after all, it IS a key element in the manufacture of the stuff and is the reason you generally can only by one box of allergy pills at a time.
