I haven't done any drugs in the past months but I have been around people who have smoked weed. Would this be detected in my system? I also have a prescription for anxiety medication (propranolol, ativan); would that come up? What exactly are they testing for in a urine sample?
If you are prescribed a drug, simply say so when they ask. If you were in a car that people hotboxed you might fail, otherwise second hand smoke is not a real threat. Nonetheless, I might stay away from direct contact with people smoking until after the test. The 30 days figure that people give for weed is only for those that smoke a crap-ton. A few days is usually fine for someone who isn't a regular smoker.
