Depends: It depends as to whether they routinely screen soldiers for drugs. Generally THC stays in the system for many days because it is lipophilic and binds to the fat stores and releases every so often. Depending on how heavy your use is, it can be there for weeks. ...Read more

Really very few: Older tests could have false positives caused by Ibuprofen and other nsaids, but newer tests do not. I am only aware of Protonix (pantoprazole) causing false positives on screening tests.

Hemp oil or hemp teas will give a true positive. ...Read more

There are some medications which can give false positive results for thc on screening tests, but whoever is testing you should be sending the positive screen for confirmation by more sophisticated methods (gc/ms or lc) which can determine specifically whether thc is present. Other than marinol, no true positive test results from other medication. ...Read more

Cross reactivity: It is quite common for some medications to cross react with the screening test for THC. For instance, Protonix (pantoprazole) and certain HIV meds can do this. You will have to request to have your sample (urine) sent for confirmation testing via gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. ...Read more

Popped a false positive for THC today. I know for a fact I haven't smoked, or even been around weed in 3 months so im confused? Not on any medication.

Positive THC: Passive inhalation of marijuana smoke has produced positive THC urine tests. However, the cutoff points that are now used in the tests are designed to allow for those instances. If you do have to submit to a urine test have your own confirmatory test done ...Read more
