My ex has been smoking meth for a while. Never touched a drug besides alcohol ever. If its been on her skin and mouth how long does it stay. Test fri.
If you didn't ingest: Methamphetamine, the amount that made be transferred through skin (which is essentially zero) or through kissing (which is close to zero) shouldn't result in a positive urine test. If you have depression, and are "blacking out" (losing consciousness?) you should seek medical attention for the cause and treatment. Having a methamphetamine user in your life isn't helping either, I imagine. ...Read more
