Abstract : The Limited Use Policy, contained in Army Regulation 600-85, limits the manner in which breath tests and urinalysis evidence may be utilized in Courts-martial and administrative separation proceedings. The present version of the policy is the culmination of an evolutionary process which began 18 years ago. Since its inception, the policy has been plagued by difficulties in articulation, frequent changes brought about by shifts in policy and adverse rulings in the courts and failure to properly coordinate related regulations. This project traces the evolution of the policy, explains what changes occurred and explains why changes occurred and explains the meaning and effect of the policy as it now exists. Changes in the law which impact upon the policy are then analyzed to determine the latitude available for change. Last, the Limited Use Policy is analyzed and specific changes are proposed.
