Re: Questiong about Marijana tesing. Will 1 hit show a postive result?

Got this from NORML's website. They may by biased but anyway...

"Blood tests, unlike urinalysis, detect the presence illicit drugs, not inactive drug metabolites. In general, THC only remains detectable in the blood of cannabis consumers for a few hours (though low, residual levels may be detected in chronic smokers for up to 12-24+ hours if more sensitive technology is used).

Unfortunately for cannabis consumers, pot’s primary metabolite THC-COOH is fat soluble, and may remain detectable in urine for days and sometimes two-to-three weeks after past use in regular smokers. Fortunately, most standard urine tests can be easily influenced by dilution."


Good luck man.

Bad idea. A few days delay won't help and you'll be more likely to arouse suspicion and get tested accordingly.

I don't blame you.

Call your P.O., don't stall, and hope for the best. Maybe the phone call will do it.

And don't do anything foolish before your next time to contact your P.O.

P.S. Op everyone posting in this thread with quick fix solutions is a retard and it will behoove you to be critical as you actually have a reasonably dire predicament
You must be smoking a lot to be so paranoid. One hit for a clean living person will not show up for weeks. While it was stupid of him to smoke while on probation, you don't need to hammer him over the head by scaring him ****less about it.


Erowid.org is a fairly credible online source for things drug related, and NORML has no reason to lie about detection duration. If those two claim 1-6 and 1-5 days for urine tests after a single use, it's a pretty safe bet that "weeks" isn't accurate.

As a semi-regular user (1-4 times a week), I've been tested 3 times and never been positive. The shortest duration was ~2 weeks from last toke to test. Though I admit I wasn't sweating the results, as there was no real downside to me if it did come back positive.


Given that the OP had never actually spoken to, nor seen his PO up until this time, it may not even be about a drug test at all. Give him a call, see what's up. Your predicament may not be as dire as you think, and even if you do need to take a test, a few days, with copious hydration on your part, is probably just fine.

Re: Questiong about Marijana tesing. Will 1 hit show a postive result?

hydration does nothing like I said it is stored in your fat cells so it cannot be removed by excess water I am 100% certain on this.

Your nonchalant attitude is jeopardizing OP, he needs to be certain that he will pass so should take necessary measures not rely on hippie propaganda.

Oh and NORML has plenty reason to lie about marijuana, as a former member, I can guarantee you that their entire policy is based on distortion and hyperbole.

And the drug store marijuana test is pointless test quality varies greatly and I assume government institutions will use a quality testing facility probably Quest Diagnostics or a competitor not a Walgreens pregnancy test.

Just please don't read that it will be chill on this post because a few people said so, I have to clarify that I know that some people have passed marijuana tests after smoking however this is not normal. You are simply kidding yourself if you think that it is reasonable to expect a negative on a drug test when you have recently used drugs (1 hit is drugs srs).

This is exactly the type of uncertainty i am talking about, be safe, be sure and figure out technically and legally what the ramifications are and if there is a way to get around them if possible.

Once again I am not saying that some people aren't passing tests. HIV regarding the way "the protein is stored in your fat cells" it is not a protein it is a metabolite, a byproduct THC ingestion.

And I am no doctor but even if it takes a while for the metabolite to be stored in your fat, after several days there is certainly some risk. If you play poker and think about odds, think about the basic fact that is well within possibility that your system could be contaminated with marijuana AFTER SMOKING MARIJUANA.

Unless you are taking a hit right before you are being tested you should be worried about it being already in your fat and should take requisite precaution.

Listen I'm not saying you should freak out, I am just saying that you should be concerned and err on the side of caution.

The only thing excessive hydration will do is make your UA come back as dilute which counts as a fail.

Re: Questiong about Marijana tesing. Will 1 hit show a postive result?

I drank a gallon of water in a time period of one hour before a test, and it did not come back as diluted, so I don't know how much you have to drink but I'm guessing its a lot

Re: Questiong about Marijana tesing. Will 1 hit show a postive result?

Wait are people here actually claiming that your piss will be clean 2 weeks from toke to test because it is "not in your fat yet"? If this concept is true, which I honestly don't think it is, then it certainly doesn't apply for periods of 2-3+ days.

Listen your body is very quick, foods you eat today will be processed and stored as fat tomorrow. The same goes for drugs, if there is any phenomenon of "delay" then it is much shorter than everyone on this thread is making it out to be, and to any extent, is obviously brief and more importantly UNRELIABLE. Oh, and the person saying it takes weeks to show up is clearly misinformed.

Re: Questiong about Marijana tesing. Will 1 hit show a postive result?

hehe.. this reminds me of a guy I polygraphed a few years ago. Guy had been a habitual pot smoker for years, then decided he wanted a great job that requires a poly, so he goes clean for over a year and a half waiting for it. One day, guy decides to go back home and visit the family/friends, gets hella drunk one night, friend pulls out a bong and he takes a hit or two. Two days later out of the blue, he gets called by an investigator asking when the last time he has done any drugs and that his poly is being scheduled for a few weeks later.

Needless to say, he freaked out, didn't tell anyone initially about his recent marijuana use and failed his initial poly test with me. Gotta think, the guy goes almost 17 months without smoking and two days after he does something stupid he gets a call by an investigator. I had a good laugh at his expense on this one.

You're missing the point about hydration -- no one is suggesting you will remove the THC by drinking a lot of water. By drinking a lot of water when you do pee your urine will be extremely diluted and a negative test is more likely.

Edit: just read that a diluted test = fail -- oh well.

Re: Questiong about Marijana tesing. Will 1 hit show a postive result?

one of my good friend's dads is a long time smoker as well. When his job instituted
random tests he kinda freaked. Turns out one of his old friends was a doc in urinalysis.
the guy told him that if he smoked on say a thursday--a few tokes-- he's be good
on monday. he gets tons of vacation time and takes random fridays off all the time.
he's hilarious and an awesome guy(huge bookie too lol) but if we were over there
on one of those thursday nights he'd come in to where we were hanging out say
'come on boys let's bowl up!' He usually takes off all of december too for the same
thing/plus holidays etc..
it's kind of sad really though because he almost never drank prior to that but now
drinks all the time because he can't really just smoke whenever. i've never really
had to worry about it being self-employed my whole life, must really suck.

one thing to consider as well, a urine test when on probation may very likely be
observed, so i'd do a little homework if possible before you try anything like the
whizzinator. i think you'll be good, it's close though.

Re: Questiong about Marijana tesing. Will 1 hit show a postive result?

I know they test for the amount of Nanograms either 100mg, 50mg, or 20, sometimes as low as 15.

I smoked a small amount and every day is going to diminish the half life. I just wonder about how many nanograms is in a hit of weed. Not sure if it matters, but I didn't have a big hit, not even a lot of smoke. Most of the pothead sites I have been browsing say that 72 hours should be enough. As of now I am loading on creatine and drinking lots of water.

Drinking lots of water doesn't mean dilution and dilution doesn't mean fail. If I fail, then I will be outraged and demand a retest.

OP, If you are interested in diluting, check this thread out..

http://www.marijuana.com/urine-testi...elines-n2.html

You may not have enough time to load up on creatine though. It seems to work pretty well if you read through the thread.

they may also just retest the same urine. usually you have to provide
a min. amount. and as i understand it some is kept for that reason.
though maybe not in all places/situations.
