Can THC, NSAIDs and Riboflavin trapped in her liver cause ALF?

My friend has been clean of all drugs for a few months now, and suddenly she tested positive for THC. She has also just found out she has Acute Liver Failure (No cause found yet). Is it possible that there was still THC, NSAIDs and Riboflavin trapped in her liver that is now being released do to the liver trying to fix itself?

Hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns.
No this is not possible and test i sin 99% cases positive due to true positive results which means that he took THC drugs in recent period.
Some medications may lead to false positive results but these that oyu mentioned are not these. The best way would be to do hair test or blood test to confirm that he is positive.

Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.

Wishing you good health.
