I have a drug test next week. Can I test positive for THC from him coming inside me? Sincerely, Naturally Paranoid. If testing positive for THC from ejaculate intake was possible, there would more than likely be a Seth Rogen film with that as a sub-plot.

Marijuana May Impair Male Fertility
Starting from an historical overview of lasting Cannabis use over the centuries, we will focus on a description of the cannabinergic system, with a comprehensive analysis of chemical and pharmacological properties of endogenous and synthetic cannabimimetic analogues. The metabolic pathways and the signal transduction mechanisms, activated by cannabinoid receptors stimulation, will also be discussed. In particular, we will point out the action of cannabinoids and endocannabinoids on the different neuronal networks involved in reproductive axis, and locally, on male and female reproductive tracts, by emphasizing the pivotal role played by this system in the control of fertility. Cannabis sativa or marijuana is one of the oldest psychotropic drugs known to humans.
Marijuana could be linked to fertility issues in women and men, researchers warn. The drug, now legal in most US states and all of Canadahas been tipped as a therapeutic for all kinds of ailments, with one study even suggesting it could boost sperm counts. But researchers at Western University in LondonOntario, Canada, say the broad picture of evidence suggests cannabis is linked to decreased sperm counts, hampered ovulation and reduced odds of conceiving.
