I snorted cocaine last month. Can I be a blood donor?
No this is not allowed. If you have used cocaine, you are not allowed to donate blood for 4 months. This has to do with the risks associated with snorting/injecting drugs. As a result, you may have contracted infectious diseases that have not yet manifested itself. If you donate blood within 4 months of use, there is a chance that this infectious disease is present in your blood and is transferred to the receiver of your blood. These are often people with fragile health, so this can be dangerous. To exclude that you have not contracted an infectious disease through use, you will have to wait at least 4 months. So realize that if you want to donate blood, the use of cocaine may be a limitation and you may have to cancel or reschedule the appointment at the blood bank.
