Will this Drug Test Detect Marijuana Second-Hand Smoke?
In the U.S. 90% of drug tests are urinalysis tests. This means that a urine sample is tested to detect drug metabolites. In the instance of marijuana the metabolite is tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly referred to as THC. If a subject has 50 nano grams per milliliter (ng/ml) or more of THC in their sample, then they will be considered positive for use. Tests verified that even after significant, long exposure to second hand marijuana smoke, a person is highly unlikely to reach 50ng/ml, therefore it was deemed an appropriate floor for determining use.
In most cases, you will not test positive for marijuana from second-hand smoke. To put it in perspective, a recent study conducted by the Legal Institute of Medicine in Germany examined eight people who were exposed to second-hand marijuana smoke in a well-trafficked cannabis shop for three hours. None of the subjects reached a urine THC level higher than 25 ng/ml. Only in instances where the area was so smoke-filled that it irritated the eyes would there be a potential for you to test positive for marijuana from second-hand smoke.
