Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The term "molly" colloquially refers to MDMA in powder or crystalline form . This drug reaches to the peak concentration in the blood by 8 hours and in the urine by 12 hours. Thereafter the level starts to fall and may become undetectable 24 to 36 hours after the ingestion.

Since the dose is small and if the time has crossed 36 hours, I believe he could not be tested positive for the drug.

Ask him to consume ample amount of water which may help to wash the drug off the system.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Regards,

Hi,

The test shows positive with body fluids as sample. I believe hair follicle test may come negative.

I'm sorry, could you explain it to me one more time just for me to tell him? he's really upset so I want to have all facts.

Hi,

The drug and byproducts is spread into the body and is mostly found in the body fluids like blood, sweat, saliva, urine etc. Hence, the chances of it being positive in the tissue samples or hair follicles are less.

Hope, I cleared your doubt.
