Carey told radio station Triple M that he had been told that the drug testing machine may have been faulty and that he had co-operated with authorities.
“The lady herself that actually went through said that she had tested positive twice on the machine,” he said.
“I said if that’s the case I am happy to do whatever you want to do. But I am also happy to leave and I left and I thought that was the end of the story.”
Carey said he was “shattered” by the story.
“It’s a shame, the day that I’m meant to be taking my daughter to school for the first time and this happens,” he told Channel Seven.
Carey said that he been visiting the prison for a year to talk to inmates.
“It’s been therapeutic for me,” he said.
“I do it for personal reasons as well as to help other people.”
Corrections sources said the scanners did not necessarily indicate someone was carrying drugs.
But they did show the person had come in contact with a drug, either inadvertently or intentionally.
Carey has admitted that he did have a cocaine and alcohol problem after his football career ended.
