will add synthetic cannabinoids (SC), also referred to as "spice", "K-2", or

submitted for testing.  Samples submitted to NDSLS for regular urinalysis 
testing will be tested for SC.  Any Sailor whose urinalysis sample is 
determined to be positive for SC may be considered in violation of the 
Uniform Code of Military Justice, Article 112A For Drug Misuse/Abuse and
