How long does it take for drugs to leave someone's system?

I'm NOT on drugs lol! The only two drugs I even know about are weed and meth because that's what's so popular around here. I was just wondering how long it takes for an average person to get them out of their system. Anyone know?

  • Hot DAMN Glamourina! You are all over that :p

    One time I went to a Steve Miller concert with my in-laws and husband. The hall was full of old hippies and there was pot smoking EVERYWHERE. A week later my husband had to go for a drug test for a new job and he came up with a faint positive for marijuana...lol. Once he explained who we had seen in concert, the guys just laughed and he got the job.

  • Your metabolism and water intake can definitely affect it as well. However, that is just a general guideline =P
