My boyfriend uses medicinal marijuana, for which he has an ID card/prescription for. He has had many joint problems, Spinal cracks and degeneration etc.....While I dont have a problem with this...my work may. I work for an employer that does SUPRISE drug UA testing. Is it possible that while haing sex, kissing, etc..that the drug may "seep" into my system and leave traces in amount enough to show on a random drug screen? Perhaps from semen, sweat, or saliva???

James Golden, MD responded:
Very, very unlikely. There have been many studies done looking at this; exposing people to situations where there are high concentrations of cannabis (smoke-filled rooms.) Generally speaking, the subjects exposed have not tested positive for cannabis. Direct body fluid contact should not be a problem as well. There is ample, medical evidence-based literature to preclude your boyfriend as a defense should you ever test positive for marijuana.
