  • Yes. Second-hand pot smoke can make you fail a drug test.
  • Possible but very unlikely, there was a study done which they piped marijuana smoke into a room 5 times a day for an hour and only on the second day of that did they fail the test.
  • The following info is from a site called elitefitness.com. It has a lot of info about drug testing. I can't personally vouch for the material, however, it's worth a read if you're interested in the subject. Disclaimer: This is not a promo for the use of illegal drugs. Reading about drugs is not illegal. Reading about drug testing is not illegal. I just know the intolerant angelic types who read this are going to start lecturing about how horrible drugs are and no one should do anything that can be construed as encouraging such activity. To all you good folks: Sit back and chill. To the rest of you, take it for what it's worth: "Fooling the Bladder Cops: Frequently Wanted Information on how to beat drug tests by Justin Gombos" at: http://www.elitefitness.com/sites/hulkster/drug_test.html "1.3.1 Passive smoke and positives: "Second hand marijuana smoke in a car can cause you to fail the next day" (Nightbyrd; see end for his info). It is possible that second hand [marijuana] smoke will raise someone to the 50 ng/ 15 mL cutoff level; however, *extreme* exposure is required. For instance, a closed car full of pot smokers and a non-smoker may render the non-smoker positive for both urinalysis and the hair test, provided that they are sealed in the car for a while. The Army did a case study where volunteers were put in a room pumped full of smoke for an hour, five time daily. Subjects started testing positive after the second day. The non-smoker would have to take in virtually as much second hand smoke as a smoker. Non-smokers are safe in a ventilated area, as long as they don't get a hair test. According to Clinton (not Bill) [see his info below], simply blowing crack smoke on one's hair may cause a positive hair test. Second hand pot smoke doesn't affect the hair test results as much as crack smoke does, mainly because exhaled smoke contains no THC. The only pot smoke that contains THC is the smoke that hasn't entered the lungs." "1.4 Decreasing detection times: Increasing metabolism [J44's note: increasing your metaboism means your body processes and gets rid of stuff faster] is probably the most effective way to decrease the time period that drugs can be detected in your system. Physical activity can increase your metabolic rate as much as two thousand percent! Nothing beats proper training taken to an extreme. A high calorie diet is the next best way to increase metabolism." "Consuming mass quantities of high calorie food will increase metabolic rate by up to 10 percent. On the contrary, a malnutritions (light) diet could lower your metabolism by 10 percent. [J44's note: a lower metabolism means your body processes everything a lot slower] Speed (drug) will also increase metabolism. Unfortunately, labs usually test for speed, and could get you into trouble. So exercise with intensity, and eat big." "Nightbyrd, Jeff (founder of Byrd Labs): Nightbyrd is the author of the "Conquering the Urine Tests" pamphlet. His 11th edition was updated in 1996." "Clinton (not Bill). Clinton has worked as a lab assistant in two drug testing labs, and has other family members in the field. In usenet, Clinton is known as ZZYZX." I hope this helps.
  • Well, now i have a question.. Just the other day, maybe, 2 days ago, i was in a van with two people, sharing some marijuana.. We were in the front seat, and the window was down on the other side, and my door was cracked a bit. i Didnt get a high from contact [[brething smoke]] but they said they were suprised becuase it was some "really good shit" But yeah, i DID breathe some of it, but they only took 3 or 4 hits before they were done.. And today i got a UA cause i didnt call my PO.. Does anyone think it will still show up? I havent drinkin any water or anything..

  • No, you'd have to inhale A LOT of secondhand smoke for there to be enough in your system to show up on a drug test. Just ask anyone who has ever tried to use the secondhand smoke excuse to explain why they've FAILED a drug test. Nobody buys that excuse because it's nearly impossible to register second hand smoke on a drug test, unless you're exposed to HUGE quantities of smoke for days on end.
  • You probably won't, from what I have heard it needs to be direct inhalation from the smoking device. Second hand smoke apparently doesn't show up on drug tests.
  • Yes, I believe you will fail. If you are exposed to it, the THC is in your system. But Evan believes different, so please let us know how it went!
  • okay so i got the UA and all. i passed it.. so, i guess, you DO have to inhale a lot of it for it to show up.
  • what can cause thc reading to get 153ng/mil if you haven't smoke any marijuana
  • no.when i failed my drug test i told my probation officer i was around second hand smoke and he said it wouldnt have shown up
  • I was in a room with some friends an they were smoking some dro an i had to test the nextday an it came back pos. but i really dont know how else i would have failed because i havent smoked for over a month. I also believe that it wasnt out of my system yet i was a really heavy smoker. i have to test today thats why im on here seeing if i could fail i hope not wish me luck thanks for the info.
  • Definitely
  • IDK but, im currently testing on a regular basis, I have not smoked in more than 40 days, and am still coming up positive, once i was in the car with smoke and my levels went back up from a 39, to a 69... so go figure
