Is it okay to donate blood if I've been smoking?
    #11169997 - 10/02/09 03:41 PM (8 years, 22 days ago)

I've given blood quite a few times in the past, I've always abstained for awhile in preparation for it though.

Yesterday I get a call because they have a couple trauma patients that need my specific blood type since I'm universal. Anyway, I couldn't say no but I smoked yesterday and I'm supposed to donate tomorrow and I'm wondering if they'll still take my blood. Any experts on the subject?

Hmm, I guess the red cross doesn't care as long as you aren't high at the time, I don't know about these guys or whether or not it's standard to test for drugs.

I've been donating for several years, and I've never even had the question asked of me I (I assume your're referring to cannabis). I have a friend who works at a local blood bank and she tells me that they have not rejected anyone for cannabis use...

They test it and you will hear about it eventually.

any time i go to the plasma center...just about everybody there looks high as fuck

it's fine...i just don't like going stoned because it makes me too sensitive to the needle vibrating in my arm and it always feels like it's not in there right

but yeah, it's fine

I've always wondered this myself. I mean, would enzymes in the blood continue to decompose any active chemicals, such as, idunno, pot, after it's removed from the body?

It'd be cool to give someone psychedelic blood:lol: It'd also be a shitty f'kin bad idea... :uhoh:

What?

If they did test for it, which I highly doubt based on the standard testing I'm reading about, it would be confidential and I wouldn't hear about it.

selling plasma... no problem. But I dont know about donating blood

lol my college campus was on the edge of the ghetto so we would walk down  to the plasma center and walk out w/ $20 which we could spend on crack or weed or prosititutes, whatever was being sold right outside the center. but weed a couple times, no crack or hookers.

the Plasma Tech asked me the initial visit "do you smoke mj?" I paused and he looked at me and said loudly "how many blunts you smoke!" lol, no one cares.

the guy would always comment on how my plasma looked all greasy from the shit I ate compared to a crackhead's, who never ate and therefor had clearer(?) plasma

There are two ways to get to the top of an oak tree: start climbing or sit on an acorn.

Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?

It is confidential and all you get is a rejection letter.  You can pursue it and they will tell you the reason.  It happens all the time with stuff like poppy seeds and energy drinks and such.

There is a good chance they just dump the blood if it comes up dirty.  They aren't really obligated to tell you anything.

Yes, go and donate.

I donate whole blood/plasma/platelets/granulocytes all the time and I smoke massive amounts of herb.

They don't care.  Your blood will be tested for numerous diseases, but nobody that gets a transfusion of your blood is going to suffer any negative effects and the need is so high that it really doesn't matter.
