This smoking I believe is pot. It could also be something stronger. My CONCERN is that my family gets tested for work or school. Can we get a false positive???

Brief Answer:
Positive from passive inhalation of smoke is unlikely.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Ma'am
Thank you for asking ask a doctor service.

I have gone through your query with diligence. Passive inhalation of Marijuana smoke doesn't give positive results.
But if continuously inhaling the smoke in closed room then there is possibility of positive results. But if it is ventilated room then also it is unlikely to get a positive results.
Thanks.
