One last limitation is the location of the study, Spain. As discussed earlier, Spain has different drug policy and societal expectations about substance use and these difference limits the ability to generalize the results to populations in the United…

After incubating, 1.4 mL of the enriched filtrate was pipetted into a microcentrifuge tube. This was done twice using the p1000. Both tubes were then centrifuged for…
