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?

Depends: Hair follicle tests are tricky--metabolites are deposited and can show up--but the real issue is not how much you did, since I assume you did enough to have an effect; if so you dosed enough to show up. It was how long ago you did it that is the factor and how often. 90 days is the recommended wait time; however, if you have a problem, go for treatment before you get caught. 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

Will second hand crack cocaine smoke show up on a hair follicle test? Please help me docs!

Highly unlikely: But if you know you are subject to drug testing (especially hair testing), and still are hanging out where crack cocaine is being smoked, you need to think about your risk-taking and decision making. If anyone inhales enough cocaine smoke to register positive, then they potentially were inhaling enough to have other effects as well. People who hang around bars eventually drink, ditto with crack. ...Read more
