Both chambers of the Oregon legislature have approved a bill making it a crime to falsify drug test results or possess a substance or device designed to falsify drug tests.

Penalties include a $2,000 fine and six months in jail. Anyone convicted of providing the means to falsify a drug test is subject to a $5,000 fine and one year in jail.
Sponsors said the law is designed to curb rampant abuse and a new cottage industry that helps workers falsify tests. Gov. John Kitzhaber is expected to sign the bill this week.
