Allen, TX asked in Criminal Law for Texas

Q: I’m on probation and am worried I failed my second drug test. What should I expect the next time I go to see my PO?

Neither of the offenses I’m on probation for are drug related. I failed a drug test for the first time and completely stopped smoking, I got tested again about 30 days later and am worried I didn’t pass. I took an at home test and passed two and the third one came up positive for thc. I’m 5’5” 133 pounds. Please help I am worried sick.

A: I understand you worries, but there's nof much you can do now. Your UA will come back clean or not. You will be continued on probation or revoked. Call your attorney. Good luck.

A: Marihauana is fat-soluble, meaning it can stay in a person's body for several weeks, maybe even as long a 3 months. If you stopped smoking pot immedialtely after the first test, you should be fine, even if it shows up on the second test, so long as it shows a lower score in line with your having stopped using.
