Maybe,maybe not : If you spend time in a smoke filled room with users you are likely to inhale enough to turn a urine test positive.Simple exposure for a few minutes would be less likely. Either way, the odor is distinctive enough that you should be able to notice it and make an exit.Those who pay for the test are not interested in how you got it into your system.If it is there, there are consequences. ...Read more

Will second-hand marijuana smoke hurt my baby?

Parents who are intoxicated, stoned or high should never be sole caretakers of infants or children because of the high risk of accidents. Legally, it's considered child abuse/neglect to do so. ...Read more

4-5 days: Just like smoking marijuana, exposure to second-hand smoke can stay in your system for 4-5 days, but the level of exposure tends to be much less from second-hand sources, so if you were not exposed to a great deal of second-hand smoke then you will probably test negative. ...Read more
