    Small amount of meth(?) consumption. Hair follicle test question
    Hello (this is directed to mydogfifi! He/she has great answers/insight!) But please anyone familiar chime in :)

    I have a question related to a previous post, but the drug was not cocaine. It was probably meth but could be PCP or a mixture of all of the above. (Cant ever be too sure.)

    I made a bad decision and used a VERY small amount, maybe two-three key bumps of the drug (about 2 weeks ago.) It was my first time use ever, and I have not used since nor do I plan on it.

    How likely is this to show up on a hair follicle test? The earliest the test will be is 4-5 weeks after consumption. How about after 6-8 weeks? 10-12 weeks?

    I would think any detection would be too small to measure or fail you on.

    I am not sure what "maybe two-three key bumps of the drug" is but it doesn't sound like much. I would agree with talaniman that it most likely isn't enough to make you show positive. IT takes the hair approx 5-10 days to grow above the scalp to be harvested for hair drug test. A hair drug test is meant to show consistent use over time so I think you will be negative.

    I believe it refers to snorting as opposed to smoking.
