Not that I'm aware of but anything is possible.
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Leslie,

Generally I would say that the answer is no they cannot fail a drug test because of cocaine unless they are using cocaine. But many drug tests can give what is called a false positive.

A false positive means that the test shows them to be using cocaine but the test is wrong and they're not using cocaine. I don't think this would happen based on incidental contact but it might.

If you are concerned, I would recommend that you have the test re-done at a doctor's office and see if it yields the same results. There are many different kinds of drug tests and some are MUCH more reliable than others.

Often employers that hire a lot of people use VERY inexpensive drug tests and those results are not very reliable. The hair follicle blood test is the most reliable but also takes a long time to process and is the most expensive.

Hope that helps,

Debbie
