Do you have very: long hair? While hair follicle tests enjoy a mixed reputation, when they do work accurately, its hard to refute to a potential employer. Most people take other tests that are shorter-acting (urine, blood), which is what you might ask your pre-employer to accept as proof that you are clear.
