Could second hand marijuana smoke cause me to fail a drug test?

Jennifer Hamilton Says...

The short answer is "no", but the forum requires a lengthier reply. What I have learned through my training and professional experience is the cut off for a drug test for THC is high enough that you cannot inhale enough second hand smoke to fail a test. Now, if you are attempting to not smoke, and have been a smoker, being around those that smoke is a risky choice. That is because being around people who are using will likely lead the brain to be triggered to crave the drug. In my years of counseling, no one I have counseled has legitimately failed a drug test for THC due to second hand smoke, though many have claimed that to the judge.
