Ganglion Cyst: Most likely it is a cyst which is caused by excessive fluid from your wrist pushing out against the joint capsule.

If I took two hits off of a marijuana joint this past Sunday and am a rare occasion smoker, what are the odds a test will be positive today?

If I took two hits off of a marijuana joint this past Sunday and am a rare occasion smoker, what are the odds a test will be positive today?

Chances are low: But depends entirely on what kind of test is being used, and how sensitive it is. Most tests report positives at 50 ng/ml of THC, and it is unlikely that two hits 5 days ago will trigger a positive, but also depends on how potent the marijuana was. Of more concern is that you likely knew you were subject to testing, but still took the hits. This may indicate a problem in judgement, risk-taking. ...Read more
