Hi I took a hair drug test today. I hit a blunt one time 30 days ago for my girls birthday then one other time 30 days before that but before that I haven t smoked in like 5 years!! I quit for a while and like I said in 90 days I may have taken a total if 5 hits of everyone else s blunt. I ve haven t smoked a whole blunt ever, I can t remember how long that s been. But will I pass this test?? I kind of want this job and I don t want to look like a pot head because I m not. ;( oh and the piece of my hair she took is like 15 inches long will that show 5 years ago cause I ve never cut my hair?

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Hair tests for cannabis are very sensitive tests and can usually detect drug traces for several weeks. So, it is possible that your hair drug test could detect the traces of the cannabis which you smoked 30 days ago. The length of the hair may not matter because if there has been recent use of the drug, the test is going to detect it.

Wish you all the best.
