I've also seen an eldery woman be harassed by KVSP by a positive test.
I know a few folks at different facilities who have had false positives more than once. Every time it was for a drug they have no contact with (they should tell you what you tested positive for). I can't tell you what to do, but I can say that there's little point in being aggressive with the CO. If you test positive again and you're sure it's not you, you can ask to speak to the Visiting Sargent about your options. It's frustrating, I understand. But getting on their radar as someone testing pos and being volatile might not work out so well.

Also, if you're not already, clean your hands with hand sanitizer before you go in and don't touch anything you don't have to before you get through processing. Handling money is the absolute best way to come in contact with residue.
