PediatricMD :

Hello & welcome to Just Answer!

If you have any questions after reading my answer, be sure to let me know.

PediatricMD :

Your ex statement is NOT correct

PediatricMD :

Meth is not transferred in any significant quantities by touching clothing and skin contact or by kissing, to cause a positive meth test

PediatricMD :

Also you can confirm this by asking whether a confirmatory test was done ...

PediatricMD :

Normally, the first test is the Enzyme Multiple Immunoassay Test (EMIT). This test is known to sometimes produce false positives. Did they follow up their first test with a second one? Good labs will verify their results using a Chromatograph/Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS) test.

PediatricMD :

If the sample is positive for GC/ MS then there is no other explanation except drug consumption

JACUSTOMER-y3fzgouz- :

yes hair follicle tested twice also i need this to show health and human services so how accurate isi it

PediatricMD :

While false positives can occur with the EMIT test, this would still not come positive by just being in contact with people who are using Meth....

PediatricMD :

If GC/ MS is done, then this is almost 100 % accurate

PediatricMD :

The fact that your ex accepts being in contact with people taking meth, is a straight enough clue IMO that this is due to his use of the drug ...

JACUSTOMER-y3fzgouz- :

do you have a degree or a medical professional

PediatricMD :

I am sure any half decent lawyer can prove this in court

PediatricMD :

Yes,
