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. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

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

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. If your job requires a random drug test, don't risk it by smoking! ...Read more

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
