A 22-year-old female asked:

I have smelt marijuana in my step childs mothers home. does that mean it is in his system even if it was smoked in another room in the house? if so will it show on a hair follicle test?

If the child was not directly exposed to the smoke, the child is not likely to test positive. Wish you and your child good health!
