    Can you still get in trouble if you passed the initial screen for weed, but didn't pass for a prescribed med, then a GCMS was conducted to confirm the prescribed med results and then found under 50ng bug over 15ng of marijuana in GCMS??? I am very concerned as I know I will test positive for opiates due to prescribed pain medication. I don't want them to do GCMS and find marijuana even though I passed the initial screen for it (under 50ng). Does anyone know what the law is on this matter?:(

    I doubt they will test for thc. If you test positive for opiates due to prescription then they will re-test you on the gcms for opiates. But then again its always good to hear from the list moderators as they can explain this situation better.

    50ng/ml for the initial test is equivalent to 15ng/ml for the GC/MS. The initial test looks at 31 THC metabolites. The GC/MS looks at only the primary one. If you passed the initial test, you should pass the second one.

    I'm in the same boat, i've been clean 21 days, took my test this morning after passing a take home 50 mg/ml.

    I'm on percocet for my surgery so they will find that, will they find my above 15 mg/ml htc level?

    Again, as Buzzby said-- 50ng/ml for the initial test is equivalent to 15ng/ml for the GC/MS. The initial test looks at 31 THC metabolites. The GC/MS looks at only the primary one. If you passed the initial test, you should pass the second one.

    Why would it be any different for you than it is for lavatek? If you test positive for opiates due to a prescription, then they will re-test you on the GC/MS for opiates.

    Thank you for this information. I've been worried to death about the exact same thing.

    It's been over 3 weeks since the test was taken. My test must have been a 5 panel because the Valium I'm prescribed did not show up and I had tested clean for THC on a home test the same day, but I haven't heard a word and am still employed. I'm sure all is ok with me. whew!!!
