Smoked what?: Why are you being tested? Military or security clearance? Probation? And also what did you smoke? I am assuming it is not tobacco and that it is a controlled substance. Knowing nothing of the details surrounding what you used and why you are being tested, I'm not able to provide you with a meaningful answer. I'm sorry about that! There is a simple way to avoid this. Don't use illegal drugs.

Marijuana Hair: You should be fine after about 60 days of not smoking, so a distant past of smoking (a year ago) should render your hair clean. Good luck!
