    Hair Follicle Test
    I was wondering about hair follicle tests.
    If you are in the same room as someone smoking marijuana, crack or meth, could you come up positive on the test? If so would it have to be the same day, without washing your hair? If you washed your hair wouldn't it come out and show clean, or could it absorb into the hair enough to look as if you are using?

    Hair follicle test are good for six months after you done illegal drugs, washing hair will not prevent this test, good luck, you should quit doing this or get help, for you got into this mess and only way out is being honest with yourself, you are only one lying to yourself

    OK... If you were just in the room and washed your hair you should be fine. The only reason it traces back so far is because it is stored in the center of the follicle. Therefore you can't wash it out. If you have ingested you got about 6 months with it in your system but a test usually only uses the 3-5cm from the scalp. Thet only shows about 120 days back.

    Just what in the blue hell were I the same room with a bunch of people smoking crack?? If you ain't a crackhead get away. Far, far away.

    Sorry, I should have answered this way. I guess the girl lives with someone who smokes crack everyday? She claims she doesn't.  I don't know how the hair follicle test works so I was wondering if she could be telling the truth or if it's total BS.  I'm not sure if she washed her hair.  My thought and opinion is that if she is living with someone doing drugs and gettting tested at all she is risking it everyday. How could you not inhale some?    I guess she passes her UAs??   She's in jail right now. But if it was only because she didn't wash her hair maybe she could dispute it, It would come up clean? Just thinking out loud. If she did dispute it she needs to find a new place to live, why risk it?
    Me, myself, I haven't even had so much as a drink since May 2007. I would pass any of the tests.  I haven't been in the same room or even the same house as anyone smoking anything but cigs.
