False Positive in Hair Follicle Test - THC
Asked Nov 1, 2007, 05:44 PM
Where to start... I applied for a job and got a hair follicle test done. My hair is about 1.5 inches long. A week later I get a call from the employer telling me that results came back positive to marijuana. I do not do and have not done marijuana in over 12 years. Is it possible to get false positive in this kind of test? And if there is, what are my legal options to challenge this result. I live in TX. So far, the only thing I've done is order a new hair follicle test from a different lab.
When my wife got the same test done her results came back in 2 days. I called on the 6th day of the collection and asked on the status and ETA of this exam. I was put on hold and then hung up on. I called again and asked for a supervisor. Hung up on again. I finally called their home office and got some answers. Reason I say all this is there might be foul play on behalf of testing facility.
On another note, I smoked Djarum brand cigarettes about 35 days prior to collection. Has anybody heard anything related to this brand and false positives? All I know is they are clove cigarettes from Indonesia.
I would really appreciate some answers on this matter. Thank you very much for reading.
