Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the possibility of acquiring HIV through sharing a joint or pipe when smoking marijuana (weed) when you have a wet cough and sore throat.

HIV is not transmitted through social contact such as hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toilet's or dishes, including sharing a joint, cigarette or pipe (1).

From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No risk: (transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario).

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician for other health related questions.

All the best,

AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Cody
