Hello
No you can not.
Only if you kissed in a way to share cocaine that was in the persons mouth, which would be deliberate.
A casual kiss would not do this.
If you shared cocaine through kissing in sufficient quantaties, then you might test positive for a short period of time. 2 to 5 days.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

If the cocaine user recently ( 3 hours) ingested cocaine ( snorted) is there a possibility of failing a urine test if a person were to share drinks with the user. Is there a possibility that the users saliva concentration of cocaine is high enough for a person to fail a drug test?
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 1 year ago.
No.
There is no documentation of that ever happening.
It will not provide an explanation.
Once again, enough cocaine would have to be put in the drink to cause a dose, and the test would have to be fairly rapidly done, within a couple of days.
There would have to be actual intoxicating doses of cocaine in the drink, and you would have known by your reaction.
