Generally, no you cannot test positive for marijuana if you didn’t smoke it. Second-hand smoke is not concentrated enough to show up in your system; however if you are in an air-tight environment such as a car or even a closet where companions are smoking and you inhaled deeply, then yes you can test positive.
Marijuana is the most commonly abused drug in the United States and in many parts of both developed and undeveloped countries. The scientific name of the plant is Cannabis sativa, and farmers harvest it for the leaves and flowers to be smoked. The active ingredient of marijuana is known as THC, short for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol.
Intoxication with marijuana can bring about severe side effects such as distorted perceptions, paranoia, coordination and analytical difficulties, and long-term problems with memory and as well as learning. Its effects can linger on for days and even weeks at a time especially for chronic users, as its active ingredient can linger in the body for a very long time. Marijuana can stay in the blood for up to a year if smoked frequently.
There have also been studies that prove a connection between marijuana smoking and deterioration of mental health, which is why it’s best to stay away from harmful drugs such as this. Persons who are genetically prone to schizophrenia, depression, and anxiety are more vulnerable to suffering from these diseases at an increased severity due to smoking. Marijuana can also have adverse reactions from the heart, because the drug tends to increase the heart rate and even cause a heart attack. Other heart diseases caused by marijuana include arrhythmia, palpitations, and irregular heart rhythms. Furthermore, while some people think that smoking marijuana is better than smoking cigarettes, the reality is that it has up to 70 times more carcinogens, so don’t smoke any of these at all.
All the idiots who say YES are WRONG. HORRIBLY wrong. They ONLY way that you can get THC in your system without smoking is to be in a car, with windows up, for HOURS at a time while the car is being smogged out. Being in a room while someone is smoking IS NOT going to cause it to get in your system.
I have tested positive 2 times with a test showing 31 first, and a 48 second time. I do not smoke marijuana, but my life partner does, and I am still puzzled on how I failed with such low numbers and not smoke it at all. My guess is that when he smokes it around me in the house, bed, car, and with his friends at his lunch hour when I have visited with him. Other than that I have not the first clue as to why.
Yes, if you were breathing while your friends were getting high in the car, room etc..
Yes, so if you have a test coming up, then I suggest that you stay away from it altogether. This is why they call it a contact high.
No you can't because the body has to have the thc in your body and without smoking it directly you cannot test positive you idiots!!!
You would have to be in a very very smoky room for it to show up. Also that should only take a couple of days to clear of your system.
This is the first site that says Yes.....doctors say NO!!
You cannot. People have tried to use that excuse for a drug test showing up positive, but it doesn't work.
No... You can not test pozitive if you don't smoke and if you are around others that do. Get the detox so you don't need too worry it really does work ..I drink it ,and never failed. Smoke on
Yes if you where around somebody that was smoking. If your having a drug test you should drink water a lot but not to much because you can flood your system. When your thirsty drink water and juice so it flushes out your system and you want to piss as much as possible
I just tested positive and I don't smoke and have not been around it so how can this be. I have not left my bedroom in about 3 months I am totally handicapped and no one has been here and smoked I have emphysema and am on O2 24 hrs a day so again how can this happen?????
You can definitely test positive for thc even if you weren't smoking however their are a lot of things you have to factor in one the amount of exposure the quantity and quality of the smoke and two the environment if you were outdoors you are safe but in an enclosed environment you might as well have been puff puff passing yourself
Yes, if you breathed in second hand marijuana smoke.
Actually this is funny, I tested positive for marijuana today and I do not smoke and have not been around anyone who has smoked.
