OP, I would be surprised if your school does drug tests during the preclinical years. While you're on the wards there's absolutely no excuse for ANY kind of drug use. Depending on the situation I imagine you could be expelled, especially while under the influence while in the hospital. Even failing a random drug test would likely cause you huge problems. It's mot worth it.
