I hadn't smoked marijuana for 2 months and then smoke a small amount 10 days ago . I got called for a random drug screen today after work -will I fail?

Depends: Define "small"? A small amount 10 days ago should be clear from your urine but any heavy use might show up for months (depending on the sensitivity of the test.) If they test hair, your goose may be cooked either way. ...Read more

Is it true that taking protonix (pantoprazole) can cause a false positive for marijuana on a drug/tox screen?

Is it true  that taking protonix (pantoprazole) can cause a false positive for marijuana on a drug/tox screen?

Yes, however...: Until researching this i did not know that Protonix (pantoprazole) can indeed cause a false positive for thc, the chemical tested in marijuana drug screens. However, if you are taking protonix (pantoprazole), (pantoprazole) tell those administering the test first & they can perform further tests to distinguish thc from protonix (pantoprazole). If you test positive, saying you used Protonix (pantoprazole) will not work unless they actually detect its metabolites in you. ...Read more

I smoked marijuana for 10 years, 34 now. My passed of LC at 49. When should i get screened with lose dose ct scan? i never smoked cigs.

Other POVs welcome!: Myadvice is not to do it but I know some might differ. Congratulations on not smoking tobacco! The dangers of marijuana for this are way low - less than the ones associated w/ the imaging. Continue to care about your health, but work toward less anxiety on it. A specialist psychotherapist on health anxiety may reall help you learn how. It's a good skill set to have! ...Read more

Can marijuana get into ur system by second hand smoke to make u fail a drug screen?

Maybe,maybe not : If you spend time in a smoke filled room with users you are likely to inhale enough to turn a urine test positive.Simple exposure for a few minutes would be less likely. Either way, the odor is distinctive enough that you should be able to notice it and make an exit.Those who pay for the test are not interested in how you got it into your system.If it is there, there are consequences. ...Read more

I haven't smoked cannabis in 5 months. If I smoke once how long until I can pass urine screen?

Below: Studies suggest someone who smokes often can expect to test positive for around a week following last use. According to the NDCI, after 10 days, most frequent users should pass a urine test at the 50 ng/mL threshold. “Based upon recent scientific evidence, at the 50 ng/mL cutoff concentration for the detection of cannabinoids in urine, it would be unlikely for a chronic user to produce a positive urine drug test result for longer than 10 days after the last smoking episode.” However, there’s no guarantee that a heavy cannabis smoker will be free of THC metabolites after 10 days. Studies show it’s possible for some users to test positive for up to a month after last use. In one extreme case, a person who reported using cannabis heavily for over 10 years managed to test positive (above 20 ng/mL limit) for up to 67 days after last use. ...Read more

Marijuana and health: I would take the morality out of the question or the 'good' versus 'bad' with marijuana use.

But, the direct effect of cannabis on the human tissue is not unhealthy in and of itself. Cannabis can be a good appetite stimulant, an anti-inflammatory, and anxiolytic. ...Read more
