I know someone who lets their kids smoke pot

My daughter has been to their house and had a contact high, she told me that the parents know he smokes pot and would rather he smokes it at home. Do they show up on drug tests?
I wanna test my daughter for marijuana.

  • Yes they show up on drug tests, you can buy home tests at pharmacies or at a CVS/Walgreens

  • Yep they do. You can buy a kit at a drug store now days. I would also consider reporting the family.

  • a contact high only happens in a small, confined space like a car. so unless they live in a shed she didn't have a contact high. why do you want to test her? i'm wondering what it's going to prove other than you don't trust her?

  • you mean would a contact high show up on a drug test? According to my exs probation officer, No. If she tests positive than she most likely tried it. I dont tell other people how to raise their kids but I dont know if I would let her hang around that person at their house anymore. I wouldnt likely say they couldnt hang out together at all because kids like to rebel but if you could give them a place to be supervised that might be best.

  • a contact high won't show up on a test no. You really have to smoke more than a hit or two for it to show up on a test, so there really is no way a contact high would have traces enough to have it show up.

    There isn't a lot you can do about the other kid, but you can explain to the parents and the kid that you won't have your kid around thta.

  • first off, how old is the kid and if you dont approve of it why are you letting yours go over there?? the majority of kids in hs now a days have probably tried it. i know its illeagle but honestly, i would rather my ds smoke pot than drink!!! at least then he wont have a chance of dying from alchol posioning.

  • I answered the other post about drug testing, but i just wanna ad this. My mom pulled this crap with me when i was a teen. She worked in a dr. office and i got up one morning to go to school and she shoved a urine collection cup at me and told me to pee in it so she could drug test me. I remember clearly how i felt thru that, and unless you have proof of her smoking pot or having a drug problem i would say don't do it. If she tests clean all you have accomplished is letting your daughter know her word means nothing. And yeah, i get it that kids lie. But if she isn't using you may have more trust in her but she will have less in you.

  • I would talk to her first and see if she would agree to have a est done, and secondly if these people are doing this I wouldn't let her go to their house anymore. I doubt if it was just a contact high if it would show up but you can always do a home test first. I would also report the parents

  • She is smoking pot again,and I'm very VERY disappointed in her. I do a lot for that girl and I did trust that she wasn't doing it. When her friends are telling other people whats going on and I get wind of it how am I suppose to react? Just sit back and say oh well? She sneaks out of her window when her friends are sleeping over,even after I've made it clear (so I though) that noone is to go anywhere past curfew. I allowed her to sleep over at her friends house and this is what happens. I don't want to turn them into the police cause I don't know why this is going on, I know that makes no sense.I took all her nice posters down off her wall,and everything she really loves out of her room. I even took away her makeup. She says I'm unfair and that I hate her. I'm not bending to her anymore.
