can weed get in your system by you touching it

According to the Drug Testing information I got when I signed up for the program to start my CDL DOT Requirement it said THC will stay in your system up to 27 days. So if it has been that long I would not worry about it. I sure would not risk my job playing or even being around it any time of the year since I could be tested with a simple phone call come down for your random test or quit driving. Mark H.

Yes. THC is an oil, in little glands or hairs that are all over the flowers, and the oil is easily absorbed into the skin. If someone handled some weed, and a test was sensitive enough, it would be detected.

thanks michael M but im getting a drug test for a job and i think its in my system

If you 'JUST' touched it.    Posted 04-10-2004 at 04:08:42       [Reply]  [No Email]
You will be fine...

However, if you were in a room full of 'dust' from drying or processing you are going to turn up positive...

Sticking your head in a one gallon ziplock bag full of dried marijuana and taking a couple good wiffs will get more THC in your system than rubbing it all over your body ever could...

Everyone else IS correct though...Stay away from it and people that have/use it and you won't have to worry about it...

See my response to Michael M farther down this thread...

Rick, if you are having to report to your probation dept. up there in Bristol, Ct.
You may not pass the test.
I understand the test there is very sensitive.
You should never touch the stuff, boy!!

OOOOOWWEEEE! You called him, "boy". I bet if we had inflections you would have said it like I would have, lol! You know, like he is just a "boy"...

ha ha ha, yep!!

? Why would you want to know that ? Silly question, but the answer is no. I think somebody is pulling our leg, silly, silly , silly.

Michael M    Posted 04-09-2004 at 20:58:10       [Reply]  [No Email]
Umm, actually Kelly, the answer is yes. the THC is an oil, in little glands or hairs that are all over the flowers, and the oil is easily absorbed into the skin. If someone handled some weed, and a test was sensitive enough, it would be detected.

While I understand your thinking on the 'mechanism', we are talking THC here, not Lysergic Acid Diethylamide...

The chances of 'absorbing' enough THC in casual contact with raw hemp/marijuana is slim to none...

For example, the route through the hair follicles and glands is of importance for polar molecules only. As a lipophilic molecule, THC does not belong to that group.

there is evidence that only a small fraction of strongly lipophilic substances, such as THC, overcomes the hydrophilic phases of the intercellular space.

Conclusion: It may validly be assumed that, with an octanol/water distribution coefficient of 6,000 (Agurell et al. 1986), i.e. a strong lipophilic tendency, only a small amount of THC permeates the skin-and is systemically absorbed only on a small scale-when administered in an oily base, such as in cosmetics containing hemp oil.

THC must be in a 'carrier' to be absorbed through the skin and then due to the size and physical properties of the THC molecules only a VERY small percentage manages to pass through...

what if i were in a bathroom with a little dust and the weed was in a pill botle and i took 4 wiffs and then touched it

Salmoneye    Posted 04-10-2004 at 11:11:00       [Reply]  [No Email]
As I said...

Oral and intra-nasal will get it into you a heck of a lot more easily (and quicker) than through your skin...

'Sniffing' the dust may just get you a positive result if the test is within a couple-three days of intake...

I just don't know what percentage might still be present...

THC (like many substances) is primarily broken down in the liver and diminishes in the bloodstream and tissues over time as it is 'flushed' out...I have not done enough reading lately on drugs and testing as I have not done anything but Adult Beverages since the mid 80's (not in the mood to lose my home or life)...

By the sound of your description, I would not worry much...If you are really THAT worried, see the link...It is a Google search for home tests for Marijuana...

'Sniffing' the dust

Darn right! I - uhh - once knew a fella who donned rubber gloves, painters mask & taped his wrists, then started helping his brother cut a bale into kilo bags, and after a couple hours they were both sittng in their folks' back yard, staring. They were still there when their folks got home and found this gawdawful mess in their room and the house took days to air out. :)

i dunno kelly they say you can get stoned just by lookin at B.C.BUD, so if thats so then certainly touching it would get it in your system wouldn,t?

Oh man, it is great. The smallest baby chick is standing, has been strong for two days, pampering payed off. The buffs are huge, and I am getting pics developed tomorrow. I love the chickens, they are really neat. Tip is a pro at getting those chickens in the house for me. HOws it been up there for you? Horses and everything doing good? Is the dog food you got working out?

KellyGa    Posted 04-09-2004 at 20:38:25       [Reply]  [No Email]
Oh, the bossman is trying to annoy him, but he just goes with the flow. Went today and got him some more tools for work, every man loves new tools. :) He is working nights except this is the catch, he works days on Saturdays. He doesn't let it bother him. That dummy will be gone back to Chicago in July, and everything will get back to normal. The nutro is good, I give Tip the canned, she has lost 2 pounds in two months on her new food, she has more to go, but it goes to show you what that junk food was doing for her, nothing. I need to plant my tomatoes, got so much going on, seems like the days are getting away from me, got to snap out of it and get my butt moving! lol

toolman    Posted 04-09-2004 at 20:45:32       [Reply]  [No Email]
