Possible Dumb Question

  1. There are 2 girls that live a couple of doors down that are avid pot smokers. Police have been to their door several times but never have gotten an answer, except for one time and they never found anything in their apartment, so they haven't been busted.

    There are usually 4 strange cars parked on the street so i doubt it's being more than just smoked actually.

    The other night i was outside with a few friends and got a couple of whiffs of the second hand smoke from the direction of their house. To the point we had to go inside once it got really bad.

    I get random drug tests at work. Been there since March and my "number" has been up 4 times. They hand you the cup and bag right then and there and you go fill it. Great policy and i have no problem with it.

    Here's my question, though: If you inhaled the second hand smoke from this stuff, do you get a positive reading from a drug test? Does anyone know?

    In my opinion, I think it is very unlikely to test + from second hand smoke. You would have to be like right next to them breathing it directly to have any affect. You said they were two doors down, seems way too far away to me to be any kind of a problem.

    What do the rest of you think?

    I'd say they're about 25 ft. away, since i live in town, we're like sardines on this street.

    I really think the possibility of you testing positive is rare. I think you'd have to be in the room in really close contact (like in a car) for an extended period of time. I'm betting you didn't even get a contact buzz, so I wouldn't worry about it!

    Nah, just contact nausea

    Very unlikely. Even if you did get it in your system, wouldn't be enough to even register.

    THANKFULLY IT IS A URINE TEST THAT YOU'RE TAKING WHAT IF IT WAS A HAIR STRAND TEST? COULD THAT COME BACK POSITIVE AS WELL? I WOULDN'T REALLY WORRY ABOUT THE URINE TEST.

    I doubt you will be positive too but if you are really worried you can purchase a home testing kit at the pharm for about $10.

    The only thing dumber than some of my questions are some of the answers I put down on my A&P final I think
