Sharing a joint of marijuana

Aug 29, 2013

I have smoked a joint of marijuana with a guy who is HIV positive. I did not use mouth but fist with my fingers touching the surface of joint that was licked by him and there was dried saliva. I know this question is commonplace but I am still worried. What are the odds that I am infected?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

There was no risk in this situation. Saliva does not transmit the virus.

In health,


please help
