What are consequences for using synthetic urine?

Q: My friend on parole and entered a re-entry program for work. She used synthetic urine for drug test. They sent it in to lab and now they say she failed drug test. She went in to program today they let her come home. Now they work with parole. Will they call parole and report that she failed urine? (Oil City, PA)

A: I have heard of synthetic marijuana and synthetic motor oil but have never heard of synthetic urine. It must be my age. I do not think his employer will divulge drug test results to the government without his signed release. It depends what he has signed, however. If he released this information, fake urine would be deemed a failed test.
