If you've been clean for a year then it isn't going to show up no matter what type of testing they do. They could find it in a hair follicle test if they wanted to go back that far and you had hair long enough for them to test. But I would be shocked if they did go back that far even if you had long hair.

2nd hand weed smoke will cause you to fail a drug test.....if you inhale it in any form, it goes thru your system just like if you took a hit off a blunt.

FALSE! There are still tons of ignorant tripe from the "REEFER MADNESS" era that only racists and bigots still hold onto (can't wait for those jerks to pass over to the other side).

You can't trust people that still believe that there is NO MEDICINAL VALUE in cannabis when it has cured- or at least made the quality of life for the sickly substantially better. But that's a whole other animal.

I was trying to get kicked out of the military (I was having a tough time "adjusting" but I quickly came to my senses) so I willingly sat in a car with 4 people hotboxing it (2 door civic si)...I was sitting in the middle in the back seat...I didn't smoke bc I had never done it before and I didn't want to be choking in front of the "cool kids" and just like my luck I was randomly selected for a drug test the very next morning...

I was soo nervous, I spilled my sample all over me (as a rude female sergeant stood there in my bathroom stall to "ensure" the urine was coming from my lady part). They had enough for their sample but she ordered a blood test as well (bc she was soo nice).

Needless to say, I passed all of them bc YOU CAN'T FAIL A DRUG TEST WITH SECOND HAND MARIJUANA SMOKE!!! It's a scare tactic...it's propaganda, stop spreading ignorance.

Wow, so you want people to die because they believe in something that you don't believe in? And they're racists and bigots??

Man, I think you need more help than a guy about to take his drug test knowing he's going to fail.

Really do hope your social skills improve, you'll want to know how to behave yourself if you want to thrive in trucking.

I`m glad I read your post first Daniel, I was about to jump all over this.

So, people who think second hand marijuana smoke will make you test positive are "racist" and/or "bigots"? Nicely educated one, aren`t you? Oh, and when this "jerk" passes over to the other side, I really do not believe my stance (or lack there of) on the medical, or any other use of weed will determine the quality of my afterlife. Seriously dude.

Someone who tried to get kicked out of the military by failing a drug test doesn't think things out very well, in my opinion.

And Raz, just because you happened to pass a drug test after being exposed to second hand smoke, doesn't mean everyone will. It depends on a variety of factors, body weight, metabolism, diet and activity level being just a few. Is it likely for someone to fail after second-hand exposure? No. Is it possible? Definitely. It's always better to not risk it, and just leave the room if people start smoking pot (or whatever). After all, if one did fail after being exposed, the excuse wouldn't matter...it's still a fail.
