  • it might work if your urine was clear and you only smoked once.... any THC shows up and youre a gonner

  • i can't tell ya anything, i have smoked weed once when i was 15. just hope that its clear, i know some places do mouth swabbing and all you have to do is rinse with listerine.

  • Well...may sound catty, but not trying to be. My hubby works in a place that drug tests often and he's always having some friends come up all scared and things because they got picked for the random drug test. Well, you know they've got 'em, you should know that you should stay away from that stuff because you could be the one picked.

  • I think you better be looking for another job, it will show up in the test. Sorry but actions have consequences.

  • it might not, my husband and i used to smoke weed all the time, he was joining the army and smoked the day before his test he drank nothing but water all day and all day the day of his test. his came back fine and dandy. but if you randomly get drug tested you shouldnt risk it if you need the never know and the same thing isnt going to work forever. . . theres nothing you can do but wait and see! goodluck.

  • Um I pretty positive that some amount will still show. At the moment pot is illegal so dont smoke it, ever. When it is legal go ahead and get as high as a kite, but u should have realized this could have happened.

  • thank you all for ur input!

  • It depends mostly on how much body fat you have. THC is stored in fat cells and can stay in your system for up to 30 days. If you are overweight it will probably still show up, but if you have a high metabolism and low body fat, then you might be ok if you flush your system out. There are also these pills you can buy at the drug store that are supposed to flush out our system in 12 hours or less (Niacin) but beware! They can make you turn bright red and flushed lol, but usually they do work.
    Next time though.. its really better NOT to study for a drug test :P

  • It depends on the test. Some high priced tests check for concentrations of certain minerals and chemicals in your urine to see if it's really watered down. Also, most tests have a tolerance of sorts. If you fall below a certain level, it will show up as negative. The worst that will happen is that you'll have to test again because your sample was too watered down. I really can't tell you anything to make you feel better. You just have to wait and see.
