Only if you smoke: Or otherwise ingest that other person's skin or hair follicles. You cannot be exposed to Cocaine through such means, and second hand exposure (being around people smoking crack cocaine) is highly unlikely to deposit enough Cocaine in you to be detectable in blood, urine or hair testing, unless the quantity was so huge that you would have been clinically affected by it (get high).
