2.5 Hair testing:
When THC metabolites are in the blood, they go through the blood vessels in the head, and get filtered through the hair. THC metabolites remain in the hair as a permanent record. The hair test costs several hundred dollars ($150-$300) and is rarely given because urinalysis is cheaper (approximately $65) and more accurate. (The hair test equipment and setup goes for over a million). According to Jeff Nightbyrd, hair tests are "widely used in the casino industry." They cut 50 strands of hair from the scalp, and send it in to the testing lab where they liquefy it. "A hair sample is dissolved in a series of solvents which extract the drug metabolites and then are analyzed via GC/MS." It can take several hours to days just to extract metabolites. Average hair grows 1/4 inch per month. Typically they just use hair one and a half inches from the scalp; though some labs will take enough to test for up to 3 years. The liquid is run through the most sensitive GC/MS machines available, and can detect as little as 1 ng/mL! The hair test discriminates in that detection is easier in dark hair. Colored people may be discriminated against further because melanin is in their hair, which can be mistaken for THC. However, there is conflicting data as to whether melanin can be detected as THC. Psychemedics Corporation has a PDT90 kit for $75. This home test kit is for parents that want to chop off a lock of their child's hair to find out what drugs s/he is using. Kids- lock your bedroom doors at night if your parents don't trust your judgment on the drug issue.
Beating the hair test is extremely hard, and there are false positives. Bleaching or dying your hair is rumored to work, but it doesn't. I imagine you can shave every hair on your body and claim that you're a swimmer. According to NORML, Aloe Rid by Nexus is a shampoo that will aid in testing negative. Aloe Rid is available only in salons. Healthy Hair, from Sampson Health Products, is another shampoo designed to beat the hair test. Healthy Hair is sold in retail stores throughout Las Vegas. Keith Thrash from Sampson Health Products recommends pre-cleansing with Aloe Rid prior to using Healthy Hair. Healthy Hair is used in the morning and before going to bed. Each session takes 20 minutes. According to Steve at Sampson Health Products, two out of a thousand people failed the hair test when using Healthy Hair. Byrd Labs is currently developing a shampoo to defeat the hair test. Some have suggested treating hair with oil because THC is oil based and oil soluble. However, there is no proven way to beat the hair test, so it's all hearsay and guessing at this point. (If anyone has any success with the shampoos or the swimmer excuse, please let me know). Swimming and washing your hair removes toxins, and Keith Thrash recommends doing both as much as possible. Fortunately, the hair test cannot be used alone as evidence because there are no forensic standards. It can only be used when substantiated by other evidence. Also, there are no intoxication standards. I believe if you tested positive for the hair test that you would probably have a good chance of fighting it. (BlockBuster Video uses the most up-to-date equipment, and passing such a test can be difficult). It takes several months of pre-cleansing to beat the tests given by Psychemedics

Summary: You are ****ed.

Take a look a few posts up....End of Story!!!! If the reading comes back positive and you fight it you will be given another test. The only way for a test to be false is if you are taking a medicine that is illegal but prescribed to you by a Dr.

I didn't want to get too technical on him, he seems to have a difficulty grasping some concepts.

"You are ****ed" is pretty difficult to misunderstand

Play lambs and make a "man suit" out of other people's skin/scalp. Just make sure you make a man suit out of someone who is clean..

its not that big of a deal. if u can afford to smoke enough to make you this stupid then you can afford to take another week or two to find a job that doesnt test or only does piss test!

not necessarily ****ed.

if its a pre-empolyment screen. i highly doubt they are going to do a hair test unless its something like a gov't job. those are around $140 or so, not alot of biz's are going to shell out that dough for a pre-employment test.

if its just a urine test..depending on your body fat content, you can probably just wash yourself out with heavy amounts of water unless you are a chronic smoker (2-3 j's a day for years).

if its a blood test...you're prolly fukd

if it a hair test, unless you want to go 'powder' or dye every hair on your body, prolly fukd.

mom's office does drug tests, they come in 3 versions for urine. cheap, mid, expensive. cheap shows drugs in system, mid shows what classification of drugs (amphetamine, cannbis..etc), expensive shows exactly the drug in question.

far as i know, blood and hair on come in one level of test, the one that will get ya fukd.

If they are doing a hair test rather than a urine test, that means this job is pretty damn important. As said above, they are expensive.

interesting discussion

although I do not indulge myself, I wonder if any of the many products offered to 'clean' your hair works.

I did a little reading on google and they need 1.5 inches of hair to test (usually) so unless you are half yeti, that would probably only include your head and your naughty bits, as the other body hair would not be long enough.

Hair IS porous, which is why you can color and perm it. The chemicals used actually open up the hair shaft and the color or the perm stuff goes inside and then they close the hair and it stays, so conversely, it would make sense that you could open the hair shaft, remove/strip stuff out, and close it back up.

But if I really wanted to keep my job and I had been smoking weed, I would be really worried.

they don't want potheads working for them. You're a pothead. They don't want you.

Tell them you smoked once, hated it and are willing to take urine tests in the future to prove that you've stopped?
