Herrmann continues to say that this is a situation that you’ll only find yourself in if you really want to. The scenario of the non-smokers in the ventilated room is a realistic simulation of most of the conditions that you are likely to find yourself in, let’s say in a concert or if you share a room with a heavy smoker.
Nonsmokers from the ventilated exposure passed the test using 50 ng/ml and 20 ng/ml cutoff levels and didn’t report any strange feeling besides being hungry.
The word on the internet is that inhaling secondhand smoke can get you high and even lead to a failed urine test.
In the first session, one group consisting of 6 smokers and six nonsmokers was placed in a 10ft by 13ft acrylic-walled room side by side. The smokers were given ten high-potency cannabis cigarettes to smoke for one hour with the fans turned on.
Between 2 and 22 hours after the end of the exposure, 4 of the 6 urine samples from the unventilated exposure tested positive for THC using a lower cutoff level of 20 ng/ml but negative for with the 50 ng/ml that is used by most laboratories. 4 hours after the experiment, only 1 urine sample tested positive using the 50 ng/m cutoff level.
There are lots of studies that have been carried out around this topic, and they all claim that secondhand smoke has the potential to cause a contact high and can even lead to a failed drug test.
In addition, the cases of slight impairment that was observed with the non-smokers in the unventilated setup are clear indications that you can actually get HIGH from secondary smoke.

Although exhaled cannabis smoke has traces of THC, the level is so low to cause a significant concentration that would lead to a failed drug test unless you are in a hotbox. In the scenario above, the fact that the non-smokers passed the test with both the 20 ng/ml and 50 ng/ml cutoff levels is an indication of the low amounts of secondary THC concentration that make it to your blood system in a ventilated room.
Can Inhaling Second Hand Cannabis Smoke Make You Fail a Drug Test? The search for methods that work in passing scheduled urine drug tests is a real struggle among stoners. There’s a reason
