I am an ocasional pot smoker and never had a problem passing

Customer Question

I am an ocasional pot smoker and never had a problem passing a construction drug test. But out of curiosity I tried a home test and it failed twice. It's been just short of 3 weeks since I last smoked. I'm 62. This doesn't make sense to me.

The home test in fact can be overly sensitive.
However, if you have a test coming up, the safest parameter is no pot for 30 days.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
