    Single use Cocaine 75 days before hair follicle test.
    Like an idiot I got drunk and did 2 lines of coke on March 20th. My test will likely be the first week of June and that puts me close to the 90 day comfort zone I could really use. I've read the other posts on here, and know one or two people that frequently responded would say I am safe, because its not for single use detection. Many others reply confidently that people in situations similar to mine are 100% screwed and will fail for a single line if it hasn't been 90 days or more since then. I don't know what determines the stance either side has on the outcome of hair testing, so I'm curious if anyone has personal experience passing or failing a hair test after using any amount of coke, at any frequency inside 90 days of being tested. I may be able to delay mine if I had to but it will look super suspicious... don't want to risk that if its not needed. If 10 people replied saying they failed for single use I'd do it I guess just looking for personal experience to make my decision since peoples professional opinion or opinions based on what they've read or been told seen to differ. Thanks especially to anyone that has failed and is willing to talk about it to help a stranger.

    Cocaine is bad, haha, to quote you.

    You'll find out if you passed or failed soon enough. We can't even guess, and obviously you only want to pass, you have no plans to give up cocaine, haha.

    I'm just going by your previous posts. I never use "haha" but you seem to think cocaine use is funny, so I'm playing along.

    If you fail you'll likely go to jail, haha. Wait... not so funny if that happens? Should I not use your response to others? No more haha when you fail?

    You can't delay it enough to matter. What's in your hair stays in your hair. This isn't a pee test. If you are going to fail it now you are still going to fail it a week from now... so if this is a call for a job if you don't jump on it now... they are going to offer it to someone else. And they always have a list of people ready to offer the position to.

    I also saw your other posts....haha...apparently you think its all a joke and you don't take this all that seriously based on some of the other things you have said. You might not want the lecture...but let me tell employer wants a drug user on their payrol, they are too much of a liability in more ways than one.. This isn't the 1970's or 80's. Those days are gone and not coming back.

    Most employers not only have preemployment screening...but they can also make you take a random test without advance warning....and fail that you get fired immediately and won't qualify to collect unemployment. Real funny.....until you see its not hypothetical, and really does happen and you know people getting popped and fired. I never worried because I Was clean....but I guess all those other people that weren't stressed out for a very long time wondering if they would be next. Yeah, I guess that might be a laughing matter to some people.

    A hair drug test is meant to show consistent use over time. One time use or a small amount of use won't show up on a hair drug test. My best guess is that you will be negative on a hair drug test. Of course you could do you own test to find out.
