if it wasn't a whole lot, then your hair follicle test should not come back positive.

doing it here and there on the weekends sounds like it was more than just one night of parting.

Well yeah but that was the last time I have done it was in march

I estimate you have a 50% chance of the cocaine showing up in your hair testing.
