I want to be tested to be a living donor but have a concern. is recreational use of marijuana something that prevents one from donating? do they screen for those things during testing. obviously i will stop such activity but it stays in the system for some time. any help with this would be appreciated.
I recently donated a kidney to my brother, and at the beginning of the screening process, whether or not I had used recreational drugs was asked. I don't believe it would automatically prohibit you from donating, but I strongly suggest you stop using NOW to give your body as much time as possible to clear any traces from your system. The question was also asked during the psychological evaluation, I assume as some sort of indicator of how I might handle stressful situations and whether or not I made wise choices where my health (and therfore the health of my brother) is concerned.
