View Full Version : Ever been drug tested?


the Talking Can
12-14-2007, 08:42 PM
Just found out, to my surprise, that a new job requires a drug test (city job...not a cop/fireman/etc..don't worry).

I don't regularly smoke. But I do when it is available, i.e. at a party. So, of course, after not having smoked for months, I smoked each of the last two weekends (very small amounts, toked off a bowl).

I have a test in 2 weeks.

There is an avalanche of bogus info on the web about a) the duration of various toxins in your body and b) the effectiveness of various $$$ detox/flush/masking agents.

Anyone have solid, medically grounded info or experience (as tester or testee) that can confirm or deny my basic conclusions?

1. For non-chronic(frequency, not quality!) marijuana users - "acute" users - marijuana will reduce below testing thresholds in 3-14 days. Huge variations based on age, weight, metabolism, amount and quality of weed smoked, frequency etc...Chronic users can be detectable for up to and over 30 days.

2. Whatever it is they test for in weed is stored in your fat, which is why it is detectable longer than cocaine, heroin, acid, etc.

3. Weed is detectable in your hair for up to 90 days, but hair tests are rarer and more expensive. This will most likely be some type of urine test.

4. All you can really do is: work out, sweat, increase your metabolism; drink lots of water the day before to flush the system; pee a lot; drink vinegar...if you can stand it.

5. It seems most of the detox drinks and pills are scams. They are intended to mask the presence of the weed for a period of 1-5 hrs, by taking several pills and drinking an ass-load of water prior to testing.

I'm actually not that concerned, as it seems that you have to be a regular smoker to need more than 5-10 days. But, of course, I won't be completely relaxed until it is over.

I'm not going to spend money on detox systems. Exercise, water, pee. Anybody try anything different? Any advice?


If you care, this article has the latest on studies about toxin retention, written for the National Drug Court Institute (http://www.ndci.org/NDCIR%20VI.pdf)

Probably just a urine screen, right? I'd assume so because it's significantly cheaper than the other 2 tests.

hair folicle (sp?) tests can catch it from the past few months. I had to take one recently, I thought I was going to do a pee test and so I drank a bunch of water before and I get there and they clip out chunks from my hair and I tell the DR "I GOTTA PEE" lol

that's my only concern, really, is that it wouldn't be a urine test....but it's a big city, I'm assuming they use the cheaper, more common test...

It's a joke that a few puffs off a bowl could rule you out, while slamming a fifth wouldn't... but I suppose that's a topic for a different thread.

If that's really all you've smoked, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just sucks to have that lingering doubt.

I agree, it is seriously misplaced priorities. Alcoholism is 100x more destructive and costly. But that is definitely another thread.

There is no reason specific to my job to even warrant testing. But the city now requires of it of all applicants from secretaries to cops.

Most of what I have read is reassuring though.

Before as in a few days, yes. But not right before. Working out right before would only "shake it loose" so to speak, making it more likely to show up.


This is how one company describes their product:

"Many toxins are stored in the fat cells of the body and are released when fat cells are burned. The Absolute Detox carbo-drink prevents the body from burning fat cells."

I have heard that drinking lots of cranberry juice in the weeks before will help flush the bad stuff from your body. Probably helpful to workout/ sweat/ whatever fat-burning exercise in the weeks before the test, as well. Of course, you wouldn't want to do either the day of the test.

Lots of water, lots of exercise (anaerobic is best,) and at least 2 weeks? If they are relying on UA, you are good-to-go; but if they are doing hair follicle or fat cell tests....well, you are probably fugged, and should update your resume.

The problem is that THC stays in the system a lot longer than most drugs. On the average it is 75 days. There are lots of variables, but a couple of weeks will most likely show on a drug test. Much better off doing coke - only about 2 weeks.

Best advice - don't do drugs. Most companies now have pre-employment drug tests and random tests.

read the article I linked too...the issue isn't how long it stays in your body, it is how long it stays at a level detectable by the test...based on the levels used by the standard urine tests, the averages are much lower than the numbers you've mentioned...

the Talking Can
12-15-2007, 12:09 AM
here's the gist:

Based upon recent scientific evidence, at the 50 ng/mL cutoff concentration for the detection of cannabinoids in urine (using the currently available laboratory-based screening methods) it would be unlikely for an individual to produce a positive urine drug test result for longer than 10 days after the last smoking episode. Although there are no scientific cannabinoid elimination studies on chronic users using non-instrumented testing devices, one would assume that if the on-site devices are properly calibrated at the 50 ng/mL cutoff level the detection guidance would be the same.

At the 20 ng/mL cutoff concentration for the detection of cannabinoids in urine (using the currently available laboratory-based screening methods) it would be uncommon for an individual to produce a positive urine drug test result longer than 21 days after the last smoking episode.

For occasional marijuana use (or single event usage), at the 50 ng/mL cutoff level, it would be unusual for the detection of cannabinoids in urine to extend beyond 3-4 days following the smoking episode (using the currently available laboratory-based screening methods or the currently available on-site THC detection devices). At the 20 ng/mL cutoff for cannabinoids, positive urine drug test results for the single event marijuana use would not be expected to be longer than 7 days.

Hence my Non- Use of the drug

From the CCC (Catechism of the Catholic Church):

The virtue of temperance disposes us to avoid every kind of excess: the abuse of food, alcohol, tobacco, or medicine. Those incur grave guilt who, by drunkenness or a love of speed, endanger their own and others' safety on the road, at sea, or in the air.


The use of drugs inflicts very grave damage on human health and life. Their use, except on strictly therapeutic grounds, is a grave offense. Clandestine production of and trafficking in drugs are scandalous practices. They constitute direct co-operation in evil, since they encourage people to practices gravely contrary to the moral law.

Ok, that being said, if you fail, you can claim it was a false positive. I believe something like 33% of failed weed tests are false positives.

1. Water and Cranberry Juice for the 2 weeks leading up.
2. Sweating as much as possible.
3. Niacin (found in the vitamin section at your local drug store) for the 36 hours before and leading up to the test.

How long had I smoked Pot?

I was a daily User for about 8 Years, a heavy Daily user

after my reversion to my faith, everything started falling in line, and I had mostly quit smoking pot about 6-7months ago but I smoked a little about 3 months ago, I didnt like it as much as I used to

Being quit from ciggarettes has also helped

the only problem now is i have gained a lot of weight from quitting both of those

thats my next challenge in the new year

My buddy told me a story about a guy who was about to be hired by a major corporatiion. He claimed he had a degree from a college he never attended.

He quit his job on Friday in anticipation of the new job only to get a call from the new employer to tell him to not show up.

They really do check on those things.

Being quit from ciggarettes has also helped

the only problem now is i have gained a lot of weight from quitting both of those

thats my next challenge in the new year

GFY! (Good for you, just to be clear....heh.)

Anyway, best wishes to you also. Let us know how it goes. :thumb:

that's my only concern, really, is that it wouldn't be a urine test....but it's a big city, I'm assuming they use the cheaper, more common test...

I may get a haircut though..lol

HAIR TEST goes back 1 year. If they want that they do not want you.

I say BS. I have performed in the top 10 % of my job and I smoke once every 6 months. I COUD beat the system if i had cash or a lawyer attached to the family.

THE COURT SYSTEM IS A JOKE IF YOU ARE A NORMAL CITIZEN WITHOUT A SIZEABLE DISPOSABLE INCOME for the system. IMO!

PERIOD!

Been tested many times over the years and I've always heard about the vinegar thing. Don't know if it's true or just an urban legend.

5. It seems most of the detox drinks and pills are scams. They are intended to mask the presence of the weed for a period of 1-5 hrs, by taking several pills and drinking an ass-load of water prior to testing.

Not all true. I passed several tests with a product called "Terminator Gold" I am not sure its still on the market. I bought it at 7th heaven for 40 bucks. You drink the bottle...refill with water drink it and wait one hour then your good for 5-7 hours to take the test.

I have not smoked in 7 yrs or so. I hope you pass and get your job. Weed is less harmful than beer yet Joe six-pack could walk in and get the job no problem. That is the type of BS I cant stand. If it were legal I would still be smoking today!

Drink good ol h20 the day of vitamin b12 to add yellow tint to urine ,you have to drink water like it's going out of style so you have the need to pee every 10 min or so , when the test is done only h20 no THC , it works I was on house arrest for a little time had to do urine test weekly never failed one

If you carry alot of fat it'll take longer to get the thc out of your system. Took me a month but I was a heavy user. Work out, sweat and drink a ton of water. Go to Walgreens and buy a marijuana test and test yourself a couple of days before and then if you're not clean go to your local headshop and pick up something to hide it. Follow the directions to the "T". Good luck!

I've not heard of a corporate place doing anything other than a urine test.

A friend of mine works for Anheuser-Busch and he says he takes hair tests. I don't think it's very common though. I've never heard of it anywhere else.

Really, I can't imagine many companies out there anymore that don't do some sort of drug test anymore. Sure if it is a tiny company, maybe, but anything government or fortune 500 it is a given.

Wow! That is impressive, probably found out all the ways to get around the other tests.

not even that the test cost ~50 bucks. Cheap insurance.... Not sure what a hair test costs.

If your a contractor your can be randomly tested..........if any doubt.

uh, I'm well aware of the "work world"....my particular line of work was only recently folded into the city, and hence subject to the city's quite recent decision to test All city employees...
