    Pass Hair Follicle Drug Test? (Infrequent User)
    Hello, right off the bat I'm going to say that I am not a habitual smoker and that I will never again even be in the presence of illegal substances after what has happened to me. I thought I could try smoking for a couple weeks (never did it before) and I'm learning the hard way how drugs can ruin your life.

    Long story short, I had a period of two weeks in which I smoked with friends about 5-10 days total, of those two weeks (get high 1 time a day when I did smoke).

    I found out I have a hair test for internship that I need to take some time between now (march 14th, 2015) and early May. I am going to push it back as long as possible. If the absolute last day I smoked was December 27th, 2014 how long do I need to make sure I'm in the clear?

    I plan of giving myself a test anonymously on the 100th day as Ive read that the test traces average out to about 90 days of history. Any help or tips are greatly appreciated.

    If you stay abstinent from all drugs you should be in good shape to pass a hair test by May. 123 days from last use by my count. Be aware an employer can order random tests anytime, announced, or unannounced, so abstinence is the answer for keeping a job as well as getting one.

    Thank you for your answer. You are absolutely right, I made a foolish mistake and definitely not happening again

    Most employers only will run a 1.5 inch sample, taken from the head, which goes back 90 days. So as long as you can go another 30-45 days without testing you should be OK. For the most part drugs aren't worth the stress. Get high working out.
