    So I used to smoke Marijuana, have left it alone and went to MEPS, I am a GO. But my friends are telling me when I get to Cape May that they will do a hair folicle test which goes back some 3 to 6 months... is this true? Like I said I dont smoke anymore as I am looking forward to starting my career in the Coast Guard.

    You will do a urinalysis at Cape May and that is the extent of the drug testing. All units in the Coast Guard conduct random urinalysis on a regular basis.

    Your friends are full of crap.  Hair follicle tests are done if you are under investigation for drug use.

    First off, If you were honest with your recruiter and the doctors/paper work at MEPS about how recent you have used drugs, you have nothing to worry about. It should all be documented and good to go. No worries.
    Second, The Coast Guard has been doing a lot more hair follicle tests these days....Entire units were hair follicle tested not too long ago. I doubt they would do it to you in boot camp but I don't think I would 100% rule it out. Maybe 95%. An HS at TRACEN or somebody in that command would know better but they typically don't advertise.. and if you shave your head, they will find hair somewhere on your body to use. But like I said, I assume you were honest with your recruiter, applications, and at MEPS and shouldn't have anything to worry about.
