Will nicotine show up on a juvenile tasc drug test?

In my experience, no. Nicotine is generally not part of the urine analysis (UA) “panels” that are tested. Marijuana however usually is tested (THC).
Drug UA panels are generally 5 or 10 panels. Meaning 5 or ten types of drugs they are looking out for. If the panel is positive presumptively positive—generally a sample is sent to a lab for further testing and confirmation. The labs can give levels of each positively tested drug as well. Meaning it can show the difference between incidental exposure or hard-core persistent usage.
