In 1988, Olympic athlete, Ross Rebagliati, failed a drug test for marijuana.

The Bleacher Report explained:

Rebagliati claimed, and still claims, that the positive was triggered by second-hand smoke he unwittingly inhaled at a going-away party. He copped to past marijuana usage, but said he stopped smoking 10 months before the Games began.

Is it plausible to ingest enough marijuana through second-hand smoke to fail a drug test?

    Possible notable claim for this - snowboarder Ross Rebagliati failed a drugs test for cannabis and claimed it was due to 2nd-hand smoke. bleacherreport.com/articles/… – Tom77 Jan 10 '14 at 21:14
  • While your question is probably a good one, the rules here are such that you might need to show notability of the claim by referencing it to somewhere other than a personal opinion. I'd include tom77's link to meet that requirement. – matt_black Jan 12 '14 at 19:25
  • This question appears to be off-topic because it is about illegal activity. – Andrew Grimm Jan 14 '14 at 5:03
  • Hmm - maybe I shouldn't have cast that close vote, as the OP claims they aren't going to be doing anything illegal themselves. – Andrew Grimm Jan 14 '14 at 5:26

    It is not illegal in many places in the world. The place is not stated. – istepaniuk Jan 16 '14 at 7:21
