How can this be?
Recently a friend told me that she tested positive
to marijuana in her physical. However, this same friend says that
she does not use drugs. How can that be? She says that she was
around people that were smoking and it must have gotten into her
system. Is this possible? I don't believe her. Please tell me how
could that happen.
i know all was the first to send us this:
poppy seeds. yes you read correct I said poppy
seeds. what happens is that there are chemicals in it that on a drug
test make it show positive
TB: Multiple exposure to second hand marijuana
smoke can show up in your system. It can take a month to flush it
amr shalakani gave his doctorate opinion:
yes it could...the active
substance in marijuana is a volatile oil. it's particles are carried
in air by means of smoke....so if she sat with friends smoking the
stuff... she could inhale some in her system.vjust like passive
smoking in ciggs. if u sit close to someone who have smoked 10
ciggs... then you've smoken one yourself!!
khrysti rattled off this answer:
she may not be lying. to hang out in
a room where all the second hand smoke it floating it is entirely
possible to get the drug in to ones system ie. if you get a contact
high then you are high just not as high as one who directly inhaled
the smoke. that is also how people who do not smoke get smoking related
cancers. and a probation violation if you need to pass a urine test
for your poo
pavolka shared their opinion:
Despite what the people making fortunes producing
the tests claim, they're not reliable. The best tests, done by the
best labs who know they're being watched, are about 95 percent
accurate. The inexpensive tests -- the ones under about $50 for a
scan -- aren't a whole lot better than a guess. (the testers use a
high cutoff for positives below which they don't report a positive.
Of course these are arbitrary -- and cause some false negatives to
go along with the false positives that happen because the body's
chemistry is so much more complex than the test merchants can cope
RedSonya added this:
About the drug test question it is possible for
someone who has been around 2nd hand smoke to test positive. Like
getting a contact buzz. But over the counter medication such as
Ibuprofen can also cause you to test positive for marijuana in a
Keith responded with this:
If she was around people that were
smoking MJ, then she was also inhaling some of the smoke so she
would test positive. Remember Ross Rebagliati and his "passive
dope-smoking" defense at the 1998 Winter Olympics?
sarah answered with this:
there are 2 possible explanations.
1)SHE'S A FREAKIN LIAR
2)she didn't do it, but got it in her system (which is possible. its
like 2nd hand cigarette smoke) and was stupid for hanging out with
people getting right fucked before she had to take an effin drug test.
in conclusion. your friend is lying, or just dumb
Smartie mumbled this:
Some other chemicals, and or foods
test positive on the drug tests. (I think pecan and poppy seed but
don't quote me on it)
elah simply stated this:
yes it is possible to test positive for marijuana or
any other in haled drug if you are in a room with enough in the air
to be tested for
Mr. Obvious summed up with this:
Second-hand smoke seems about as likely to cause
your friend to test positive on a -test as second-hand cigarette
smoke is likely to cause lung disease. Which, for the record, is not
all that rare.
