Lindsay Lohan has failed a drug test. Fresh out of jail and rehab, Lindsay Lohan has failed a drug test that was court-mandated. According to TMZ, which has an exclusive report on the situation, Lohan failed the drug test last week. This is in stark contradiction to what Lohan is stating, but TMZ has received their information from a source they claim is close to the situation. Though the name of that source has not been revealed at this time, TMZ has taken the steps to confirm that their story on this breaking news is indeed true.
If Lohan really failed a drug test, she could be facing some stiff consequences for her actions. She is still on probation after violating her last probation, and is mandated to take random drug tests as part of her probationary agreement. She just finished serving time behind bars for violating the probation she had for a DUI, and went into rehab immediately following that incarceration. On the recommendation of the doctors at the UCLA facility where Lohan was being treated, she was released early from rehab, but now it seems that this may have been a mistake. In recent weeks it had seemed like Lohan was trying to improve her image, but this is going to set that back a bit.
So what does a positive drug test mean in this case? Well violation of her current probation would mean 30 days in jail, but she would first get a hearing and court date to try and defend herself against the test results. It sounds like there are some harsh accusations out there about what Lohan might have done, and that could derail her career permanently if she did indeed fail the drug test. Lohan was released from rehab early, and this could end up being one of the severe consequences associated with letting an addict get out of putting in everything necessary to get better.
If it turns out to be true that Lohan was abusing drugs again while on probation, no judge should be lenient on her. If she did test positive, then it is clear that she was using substances that she shouldn’t, no matter what her excuses end up being. It’s hard for an addict to become clean if they have too many enablers surrounding you that keep telling you that you never did anything wrong in the first place. Did Lohan learn nothing while she was incarcerated and then in rehab? Or is this one of those random cases where a drug test provides a false positive? Lohan is about to face a rash of bad publicity, and we are sure to see her in a courtroom again very soon.
