Tomorrow I'm supposed to head over to the doctors for a physical exam. I have been smoking weed like once a month and im worried that they could find out about this and inform my mom. So I have a few questions:

1. Do they even look for this in a physical exam? (It's been quite some time since my last one so I don't really remember.)

2. If they do find it, could they tell my parents or would that be violating the Doctor-patient confidentiality?

3. I'm 18 so is it possible for them to notify my parents at all without my consent?

Thanks.

Don't smoke weed.
And the drug thread might be able to help you better, they cover a lot of this stuff quite often.
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.

No, the main thing they check for is hydration and even if they did find it in your piss then they can't say anything to your mom

Yea, Sublime is a great band. You have an Underoath icon, so I think your opinion doesn't matter.

1) They test for drugs, yes. Always (in my experience).

2) No, you can request that detail of the exam to be kept private.

3) Absolutely not. Read above.

Just tell your parents you're on the spliff before they find out. I'm sure they'll take it a lot easier if you be hoenst with them than if you get caught.

ALRIGHT, you need a bucket, a full bottle of Dayquil, one box of raw uncooked rice, and a clothes hangar! STAT!! NO TIME JUST DO IT

1. They might, I have had physicals where they have and physicals where they have not.

2. I don't think so

3. I really don't think so

If they tell your parents anything then they are breaking to code of doctor-patient confidentiality.

That's really a personal choice.
So don't tell what to do.

Would solve all his problems.

And yes you're probably going to be alright. I don't know what the state laws are on when you become an adult and all that consent stuff but I'm sure by eighteen you're in the clear.

You're technically an adult, why would you be worried?

I've never had to take a piss test for a physical. From what I remember they check your heart, ask you a bunch of questions, feel your balls, and weigh you.

No

No, you're an adult so you medical records are between you and your doctor.

1. Highly doubt it
2.Your 18 doctor-patient confidentiality applies
3. see above

I am a frequent pot smoker and for about a year i was so worried about my parents catching me. About 4 months ago i told them. After the inital yelling/omg-were-sodissapointed speech we had a real talk about it. I showed them the recent studies and research done on marijuana and showed them just how harmless it is.

Long story short they knwon and accept that i toke. It makes the whole thing alot better because im not constantly worried about getting caught.

Well it would be nice if my parents were as understanding but they're not. My older brother started using drugs at about my age and he completely ruined his life. Keep in mind though that he NEVER did good in anything. He was always a screw up. I on the other hand keep my grades up and get all my work done. I'm responsible but I know that even if I were to try and explain all of this to my parents and show them that it really is harmless in moderation, they would still freak out and just stop caring about anything I did. Even though I have never messed up in my life and I've always been a good person it wouldn't matter to them because they would consider me a drug addict.

I hate people like your parents.


But you'll be fine. They usually don't check for drugs during physicals and even if they did you have doctor-patient confidentiality since you're 18.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

Sucks man. Dont worry nothing will happen. Even if they do a piss test and find THC in your blood and they tell your parents, you can sue.
