Submission + - Police reinstated after failed drug test, arguing mixup with powdered donuts (bostonherald.com)

snsh writes: The Boston Herald reports that a Massachusetts state board has reversed the firing of six police officers whose hair tested positive in routine drug tests. The officers successfully argued that they were inadvertently exposed to cocaine from brushing what was assumed to be "confectionery powder from doughnuts" from the seat of a car, from eating a cookie kept in a pants pocket where confiscated drugs were also put, from living next door to crack smokers, and from Lidocaine administered during surgery, among other things.
