When testing for strep throat can they detect drug usage like marijuana?

No: The throat swab for strep is only tested for that. In most localities in the US you must give written permission for a blood or urine test for any drug.

Otherwise, people are not sneaking around trying to test you for drugs, unless of course it's your mother. ...Read more

No smoking or very very little occasional Marijuana use, have "minor" chest congestion, constant throat, chest tickle, no cold symptoms. I'm 35 yr old?

Bronchiitis: Sounds like it might be a touch of bronchitis that is viral in nature. You likely don't need antibiotics, and could just "tough it out". But if you are constantly coughing and clearing your throat you could try over the counter anti tussive medication such as dextromethorphan = robitussin (guaifenesin) or delsym. But if that does not work there are prescription based meds such as benzonatate. ...Read more

Has anyone ever got smoking related cancer (lung, throat, oral, etc) from marijuana smoking and no tobacco smoking? I cant find any documented cases

Has anyone ever got smoking related cancer (lung, throat, oral, etc) from marijuana smoking and no tobacco smoking? I cant find any documented cases

No smoking gun: In individual patients, it is hard to pinpoint which carcinogenic exposure (if any) caused their cancer. Carcinogens usually don't leave a telltale sign on the cancer cell itself. We must then rely on statistical inferences from studies of large groups of people. Though less well studied than tobacco, studies estimate the risk of lung cancer is 2x higher in pot smokers. Car crashes also go up ~4x. ...Read more

I had temperature with a sore throat few days ago. I medicated with hash (marijuana) and now after work I can't feel my legs and right arm.

Call your doctor: Immediately if you still have symptoms now, or go to the urgent care if open, or ER. Your hash may have been contaminated with other products that are causing you to feel worse, and a drug screen has to be done to see what else you ingested or smoked or took that can be causing this problem. Sore throat with temperature history doesn't produce this type of neurological symptoms. ...Read more

16 weeks ago I had bad burning pain in my lungs from a long draw of marijuana for 1-2 hrs What's the chance of permanent damage? What should I do?

Quit smoking now!: Studies have shown that the effects of cannabis on the lungs are different than that of tobacco, but there is documentation that long term use causes some irritation to the large bronchial tubes, increases the airflow resistance and causes hyperinflation and is more likely to give a bronchitis like picture. The quicker you stop, the less likely to cause permanent damage. ...Read more

The benefits of achieving this balance cannot be overstated. ...Read more
