drug test? - June 9th 2011, 12:54 AM

I am looking for a job and a lot of the places I apply at have a drug test requirement. So how long does it take to get it out of your system? I heard 3 weeks and I am wondering if I was wrong.

(note: I do not smoke often and I am not looking to hear about quitting in general bc I am not a major pot head and do not spend every piece of cash I have on it, I think I found the balance alright and if you want to lecture me okay I get it)

It takes about a month to get weed out of your system..so yeah 3-4 weeks
There's ways of getting it out faster, but they don't sound pleasant and I don't know if they always work lol.

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind donít matter and those who matter donít mind.

What you read was right. The only thing you can do to make the process go faster is drink a lot of water. It might help flush out your system a bit.

It usually depend on how often you smoke. If your a daily kind of person it can be a while like a month. But if it's really once in a blue moon type thing it can be less like a couple days to a few weeks. Try googleing it.

Although it can take a while for the weed to leave your system, the answer depends on the type of drug test. Drinking lots of water can be a very bad idea, not for the health reasons but certain drug tests will screen for excess water intake/urination as an indicator you're trying to mask how much drugs you have in your body. Other drug tests won't reveal the water intake and urination but will reveal the amount of weed you've had beyond the one month marker. Again, this all depends on the type of drug test.

If you know ahead of time the general type of drug test, then you can have a better idea of what things you could do that would help fool the drug test. As rules of this forum indicate, I will not tell you what to do but I will tell you whether some ideas you post are likely to work or not work.

I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.

It would help if you knew which type of drug testing your are being subjected to. For Saliva / Mouth Swab, you will be clean in 1 hour after smoking. If it is a blood test, you will be clean within 1-3 days. If you are getting urine tested, it can range from 1 week to 1 month depending on regularity of use. Every once in a while would take a week, daily use would take in upwards of a month. If you are unlucky enough to be hair follicle tested (which is very rare), it could be 1-3 months, or since your hair was last cut.

You can get rid of it faster by drinking lots of cranberry juice and taking cranberry supplements.
