I lost my job for testing positive for marijuana and I don't smoke Marijauna, or at least haven't in a long time. Some research has shown it will show a false positive but I am having a hard time getting anyone to put it in writting so I can either get my job back or at least qualify for unemployment benifits. If I smoked and was caught then I would take my punishment like a man but I am innocent. Any help would be appreciated.
Will Tramadol show a false positive for Marijuana in a urine test?

As a medical assistant and working with PTs and I myself am prescribed Tramadol (Ultram) for pain. While in school we did drug tests and I always showed positive for THC even though I do not smoke marijuana. I have been prescribed Tramadol for over 2 years , I am a veteran so I need it for pain but always show up as THC in drug tests. Just thought I would let you know that maybe over time it will give false positives, but as far as I know, It does show a false positive. Hope it helps
my boyfriend just took a random drug test and his was positive,he is afraid he will go to jail. he is drug free except what he has been given by his doctor for pain... tramadol!!!
Tramadol should not show positive for marijuana,since tramadol is more or less a synthetic opiate. A person who I knew was on tramadol passed the urine drug test without any problem.
