Would a hair follicle test positive for meth if one was in the same house while meth was being smoked by others

Your real problem is that you are hanging out with people that smoke that stuff. Nothing good will come of it. My advice: find new friends.

Probably not, since the amount inhaled will not be in a lot. If the person is always in a room where meth is being smoked, then yes, your hair follicles will test positive.

Meth doesn't leave the body through elimination, but the body needs to get it out of the body. So it pushes meth out the skin. This feels like little itchy worms under the skin. Addicts scratch which forms scabs. Some addicts eat those scabs because they contain meth. Not turned off yet? Meth rots the gums and teeth, even in teenagers who do meth. The gums turn brownish black. Teeth fall out.
If you do not do meth, why are you hanging with people who are in self-destruct mode. Get new friends. Volunteer at the animal shelter. Get a dog. Spend time with people who are doing something real. Do good in the world. Leave those losers behind.
