Yes: The particulate matter that you gain when you smell or inhale second hand smoke can emit enough chemicals to test positive. The chance that it would depends on the duration and intensity of exposure and the sensitivity of the testing.

Yes: All those who inhale even small amounts of smoke will have ash deposits in their nasal passages that can leak canabanoids into your system. The amount may or may not reach a level detected by usual testing methods.(Depending on your proximity to the users and the duration of exposure)
