If I fail a drug test for a job what will happen other than not getting the job?

Can they tell anyone? Or is it confidential? Will it prevent me from ever getting a job there in the future? I went to a party and smoked quite a bit of pot(very rare for me). I was drunk and didn't even think about it. I forgot that I have a job interview next week. I'm freaking out!

  • If it was that long ago, you should be fine.

    I think it only stays in your system for a few days.

    I used to work for a company that did drug testing, ( I just processed paperwork) but I think they said something like that.

  • I guess it depends on your system but most take only 1 day to get out.

    Your medical records are confidential(HIPPA).

    To find out if it would affect getting a job in the future with that company I would consult with a lawyer.
