I failed a hair drug test as cocaine showed up. However I have never used this drug in my life. My husband has done cocaine. Is there any way it could?

NO: if you have a positive test and have never used cocaine, this result could be a false positive. Have you been using any stimulants or decongestants like Sudafed? I suggest repeating this test. There can not be any passive transfer unless he used it sexually or put it in your mouth, vagina or rectum. ...Read more

Can you pass a hair follicle test if you only used a very small amount of cocaine?

Can you pass a hair follicle test if you only used a very small amount of cocaine?

Honesty is best. ...Read more

I did about a gram of cocaine about 2 months ago: I just took a hair follicle test today. What are the chances of me passing?

I did about a gram of cocaine about 2 months ago: I just took a hair follicle test today. What are the chances of me passing?

Pretty much none: unless you have completely shaved off every body hair from the time you used it. I am always concerned when someone who is subject to drug testing uses a drug - it indicates that the drug use is more important than your future or your job, liberty or whatever the drug test is being done for. This is a potential indicator of problem drug use and needs counseling and other help. Please seek it. ...Read more
