Question (5/30/14): People drove by and stopped close by, I could smell a strong scent of marijuana in the air when after they left, wondering if that would cause a failing of a drug test in a couple weeks.
Answer (5/30/14): Marijuana tests are done in several ways and the most common is through a urine sample. In a urine drug test, there are numerous factors that influence how long THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) will stay in a person's system. These include body weight, body fat, amount used and frequency of use. For example, someone who smoked marijuana once might have THC in their system between 1-6 days while someone who is a regular or heavy user, smoking frequently, could still have THC in their system up to 30-45 days or more. Each individual will be different based on the factors listed above.
Without inhaling the marijuana directly into the lungs, it is highly unlikely that THC will show up in the system. Second-hand marijuana smoke can leave traces of THC in urine for a time after breathing in the smoke. However, the amount is usually not enough to make someone test positive, especially if that person is not a typical smoker. Most drug tests have intentionally high standards to avoid false positive results due to incidental ingestion of second-hand smoke.
