Default Petition for false positives on ION scanners

Please sign this petition if you have ever falsely "hit", or have witnessed people "hitting" positive on the machine. False positive hits are becoming so common and are humiliating and stressful. the only way to make any changes is to speak up about these unfair experiences.

I tried to post the direct link, but I am unable to. Please google " ion scanner petition canada" there is a petition on change.org

No, not all prisons in the US use them. They are an ion detecting machine that scans for the presence of illicit substances such as drugs and explosives. They also use this type of scanner in random TSA searches.

A correctional officer swipes a cloth across your skin, personal item or article of clothing and then places the cloth into the machine. It "reads" the cloth and shows a negative result if nothing is found and positive result if a substance is detected.

False positives are common. So common that they have been reviewed and removed from federal prisons (though someone said they have returned). False positives can stem from prescription medication use, coming into contact with a substance (car steering wheel, for example) or just a false reading.
