My urine screens are observed already. I didnt know that you could test positive if you were exposed to someone else smoking it, I was in the presence of 2 people smoking it the Friday prior to taking the test, exposed on friday into saturday a.m. about 2am and had the test done on tuesday a.m. at 6:30am, I left the room/encounter after I requested the two people to not use it in front of me, they stopped the first time, but when I left the room to go to bathroom, upon return they were smoking again, so I got dressed and left since they were not respecting my request. Would that exposure have tested me positive, I would have only been second hand exposure, and wouldnt it have been too soon after exposure to show on a hair screen, it was only perhaps 72 to 80 hours after exposure. Thanks for you previous answer, it made me remember the event that had occurred, forgotten about it because it was so brief. And as I said earlier the specimen came from my armpit. ps. given this new info, how soon does meth show up in a hair screen, especially since I didnt partake, but was just in the room, and I am a white male BTW, I thought I would have had to use it myself for it to get into my blood stream and then into my hair, and it was only a brief, perhaps a couple of minute when I arrived and made my first request for them not to use, then maybe 4-5 minutes (when I returned to the room), and the room didnt appear to be smoky looking either time. and in light of this new information (that second hand exposure) could make a positive test, although I really dont know how, I looked it up before responding, the web site says it would take anywhere from 7/10 days to show up in head hair and longer in body hair. With this new knowledge in your experience should I be proactive and inform my employer of the event???
Thank you for all the information you have provided. As for the last suggestion that has already taken place. They were new people I had met and didnt know that they partied and played, Thats why I left when they didnt respect my wishes and I DO NOT plan on any further contact!!! I still dont know how there can be any metabolites present, I dont use any drugs that are not part of my HIV regimen, I have partied in the past on occasion but last time was in 2005. thank you again, and I will try to keep you informed/updated. It has been a stressful time, because I know that I dont use drugs or any substance including alcohol and am very careful what I do put into my body. I do take anywhere from 120 to 150mg of pseudoephidrine a day to help with my breathing and congestion otherwise I have a constant cough, sneezing and/or nasal congestion!!!
