Well, I can understand for cases of strict liability if rides can show they did not take the drugs willingly that there should be leniency.
I suggest such a policy causes more problems than it solves. Riders must be held responsible for everything they ingest. If they want to risk eating food that they don't know is organic then that is the risk they take - no crying "I didn't know" afterwards.

If you have "outs" or even leniency then the system evolves into one in which the creation of alibis becomes an integral part of it.
