I was around some friends that were smoking marijuana las week, and I had a piss test today for the military? Will it show up? I am very active and drink plenty of water.

Activity and water: Don't really make any difference. Second-hand marijuana smoke does not give people who were exposed to tiny amounts a positive test. If you shared a fiat or a phone booth with 4 people all smoking pot for several hours with windows closed you might begin to approach having a positive test. Old sayings - if you don't want to eat, stay out of donut shops, if you don't want to drink stay out of bar. ...Read more

I was in the room w people smoking marijuana there was AC and fans it was only for about 30 min, if I take drug test week later can I fail secondhand?

Not likely: Depending on the cut off level used for the test, it is possible that you may test positive, however, more than likely you should be clean. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is colorless.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.

You didn't finish: But sounds like the answer is no. Second-hand marijuana smoke will virtually never cause a positive urine test (unless it is in a closed car with 5 people smoking and you inhaling deeply). In addition, unless they are doing hair follicle testing, nothing from that many months ago would be detectable in a urine or saliva test, and might not even be in most hair samples, depending on length. ...Read more

Just curious. If people are smoking marijuana around you at a concert, can you fail a drug test? Or worse, can you get the effects of it?

Unlikely: Screening drug tests, such as those used for pre-employment physicals, typically have a threshold that is set at a high enough value to eliminate the risk of "passive" exposure causing a positive result. ...Read more

I have been marijuana free for 7 months. Before this I was a chronic smoker, smoking all day everyday for a year. Job drug test tomorrow. Am I ok?

Fine: You'll pass. All the thc is gone within a few weeks.

Interestingly, there are trace amounts of it in your hair and nails for months. But they won't check that.

I quit smoking marijuana two weeks ago and I have been drinking massive amounts of water to flush my system will I be clean for a drug test?

I quit smoking marijuana two weeks ago and I have been drinking massive amounts of water to flush my system will I be clean for a drug test?

Depends: Light use, single exposure, likely gone. Chronic user and or heavy use, can persist for months. The drug attaches to fat cells in your body and begins to detach and leave you over time as long as you quit using. You can't really flush it and internet coaches that promote various products to do so are frauds. ...Read more

I have DDD I smoked marijuana because it helped. My doctor said he is starting drug testing. I quit smoking it. What should I tell him if I test +?

The truth: If you test positive tell him just what you said above- that it helps but you have stopped because he is now testing. I don't know if medical marijuana is legal in your state but if it is I would ask his permission for you to use it. While not a cure, marijuana can be very helpful for pain and inflammation, is generally safer than drugs for pain and usually allows you to use less of those drugs. ...Read more

I am A frequent marijuana smoker (2-3 times per day) and have a saliva based mouth swab drug test coming up soon. How long should I stop smoking for?

Depends: You are asking doctors how to beat a drug test! I would think you may not get much help here. Often, employers drug test hires because the job they are applying for requires attention. There may be a safety concern or a quality control concern. In any case, most doctors, myself included, are not likely to want to help you¨fool¨a drug test, unless total abstinence was your plan going forward! ...Read more
