Hi,
Thank you for writing in.
A positive urine test shows excretion of DET(2-methyl-diethyltryptamine) which is a psychedelic drug.
It causes changes in regular perception. The person will be quite aware of illusory nature of their perception. After the effects wear off, typically you'd feel very sleepy. So be careful while driving or using any machinery.
Hope i have answered your question.
Feel free to ask if you have any doubt.
Wish you good health.
Thank you.
