Answer Dear Kelley
None of these should cause a false positive for THC. If it was the quick test that was used they very often show false positives and should be followed by a more precise test for verification. However, I will say that, especially in the US there appears to be many laboratories doing these tests which produce many false positives. When a test is done the person involved should always have a sealed second specimen provided in case of dispute which can then be tested by a reputable laboratory.
