Toxicology And Marijuana Screen
I have been marijuana free for 27 days. Done smoking for ever. How long until I can pass any type of drug screen with no worries?
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?
First of all, i am not a regular marijuana smoker. I took a drug screen on the 9th of febuary which came back clean. I took another one on the 11th which came back positive almost two weeks later when the results came back. I am getting this sample retest
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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!

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

Sometimes...but: Good toxicology labs test the ph and temperature of the urine to identify adulterants added as well as the specific gravity and creatinine (body waste product) content to check for dilution. Specifically short term "water loading" will cause creatinine levels from 2-10 which is reported on the report as a possible false negative and repeat test recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not fatally: I have never seen a report of an overdose of marijuana causing death directly-- although many fatal car accidents are caused by marijuana. 'overdose'-- taking in a higher amount than planned-- can have other effects, like paranoia, sleepiness, impaired judgment.. But the effects go away when the thc wears off-- as long as nothing permanent happens from being impaired i.e. Fights or accidents. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Federal Law: Laws regulating cannabis and other drugs date back to the late 1800's and early 1900's. Although many states have passed laws that attempt to eliminate criminal penalties for marijuana use, current federal law, the controlled substances act of 1970, still classifies cannabis as a schedule one drug. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Marijuana and health: I would take the morality out of the question or the 'good' versus 'bad' with marijuana use. Like any substance the over use of this product can lead to intoxication, addiction, and other health or mental health concerns. 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 moreSee 3 more doctor answers
