    No. You can be sweat tested and I guess if sweat from your fingertips is swabbed, you could pop. Common routes of testing order from most to least likely are urine, saliva, hair them blood but any employer or parole agent etc can and do test however they choose. Usually most go urine first though cuz it’s cheap and can test for up to 24ish substances. How long one needs to be clean before a test depends on the drug, if person is chronic user or just once in a while, how fast your body eliminates drugs (fat greatly slows drug elimination), and the test one has to take (hair testing shows use three to six months before test..urine generally 5-7 days, saliva and sweat 3-5 days and blood in a day or two. No fingerprint testing to worry about though.

    No, drug-use does not alter your fingerprints

    - except this one medication, according to CSI-series

    Some drugs will show up in the oil and sweat on your hands, but its rare and not something they test for.
