Rosie O’Donnell Reportedly Failed a Hair Follicle Drug Test

According to the celeb gossip sites, Rosie O’Donnell reportedly failed a hair follicle drug test.  According to gossip rags, O’Donnell is involved in a child custody battle with ex, Michelle Rounds, over their 2-year-old daughter, Dakota.

O’Donnell submitted a hair follicle drug sample which, allegedly, came back positive for marijuana.

Learn How to Pass a Hair Follicle Drug Test

There is only one hair treatment method that has consistently produced "Passes" on the hair drug test and we want to show you how you can pass your test too.    

The story is somewhat suspect though as an insider is quoted as saying:  “She’s been trying to hide her drug use for a long time, and she didn’t realize that marijuana stays in your system for a number of months.”

It is hard to believe this account for several reasons:

O’Donnell would have to be living under a rock not to be aware that marijuana stays in your system for an extended period of time.  In fact, most people tend to overestimate the amount of time marijuana stays in your system for urine tests which should have at least been a indicator that THC metabolites stick around awhile.

She’s quite wealthy and one would assume that she has not just a lawyer but a team of lawyers acting on her behalf and would have advised her on drug detection windows for hair, saliva, and urine drug tests.

Likewise, if her legal team was aware that she was at risk of failing a hair follicle drug test for marijuana, one would assume they would have procured her a medical marijuana card so as to at least mitigate the negative consequences of a positive result.

That’s not to say that it’s hard to believe that O’Donnell failed a hair follicle drug test (it happens).  It just seems unlikely that she would be completely unaware of her risk of failing if she was indeed using marijuana within the last 90 days.

On the other hand, if the story and the insider quote are accurate, she should immediately fire her legal team.  Drug testing, especially hair follicle drug testing, is very common in child custody cases and her lawyers should be well aware of the drug detection window.  For the kind of money she is likely paying, one would assume that they could drag the process out months allowing for O’Donnell to be clean long enough to pass the hair follicle drug test.

However, if true, this is yet another example where drug testing is used as a judge of character when in reality it provides no such indicator.  You can be a raging alcoholic or pop prescription pills all day long and the courts seem to have very little problem with that.

But if you like so smoke a little weed from time to time and even if you smoke weed in a manner that is perfectly legal, say, for instance while in Colorado where recreational use is legal, you can be found unfit to care for a child if you failed a hair follicle drug test.

Yet, you can drink all you want.  You can get black-out drunk every night and it would be very difficult for that to be brought against you in court due to the amount of time alcohol stays in your system.

This is why if you use drugs, recreationally, medicinally, or otherwise that should really understand what is at stake.  You should be aware of how drug testing works and what you can do to improve your chances of passing a hair follicle drug test.
