  •  OK. Italy has a better system. (0+ / 0-)

    The US doesnt have a lack of technicians (wrong title be the way) to perform a tox screen or doctors to perform an autopsy.  Neither a body nor a specimen can wait to be examined or tested for 6-8 weeks..  I've been present at autopsies, I've performed toxicology screens.  It doesn't take 6-8 weeks to report a positive or negative result.
