I am pretty scared about this because a postive result would have some severe consequnces. What are the chances that 1 hit would show up as a positive result?

I know it builds up in your fatty tissue and I am in decent shape.
Dude,

Why take a hit if you know your getting tested?
This will most likely show.

I had no idea I was going to get tested. Honestly, I still don't really know if I am going to get tested or not, but I have to assume so. I am on probabtion but it isn't real probabtion. I have been on it for about 6 months and have never even spoking with my P.O. Aside with leaving a message for him when I first was on that he never returned.


This was the first time he tried to contact me.

Go to walgreens and get a home drug test. I seriously doubt one hit will show up in a test, but others on here seem to think it will.

Depending on the sophistication of the drug test even one hit will show.

OK I'll explain myself. I had a DUI last summer and was put in ASAP (Alcohol Saftey Action Program) I have completed the class. They give everyone a PO although, you aren't ever required to check in. He just called me out of the blue today.

Please refrain from negative comments reguarding my situation. I know I have made some bad decisions and I paid for them. Getting a DUI was the worst moment in my life. I got stopped for speeding and thankfully no one was hurt.

Drink as much cranberry/grapefruit juice as possible (do a little more research on the specific kind) from what i've heard, this is sort of a hoax, but the less you've smoked, the better chance this might work.

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

Wow, some horrible horrible misinformation in this thread. OP, please read this carefully

It is virtually impossible for one hit of marijuana smoke to show up 48 hours after you have smoked it, if you are not a habitual user. The reason is the way the protein is stored in your fat cells, it builds up over time and with habitual use.

So if you smoked every day for 10 years, it'll take 2 months of no smoking for your system to be clear

but you havent smoked in a year, and take ONE HIT, and you have a fast metabolism, you can test negative 3 days later, almost always

seriously, trust me. you shouldnt be worried at all

also, regarding being on probation

i would not worry too much about that. i was on probation for a year, and theres two things that could get you out of hot water

1. your officer could decide not to test you, not thinking you are a big risk. this depends on how often youve been tested in the past, if youve tested negative the past 3 times, dont be suprised if they dont bother testing u

2. marijuana is pretty minor, even in the extremely rare case that u do test positive. obviously, this depends on what you are on probation for, and whether your probation officer likes you, your past history, a lot of things basically

but i was on probation, and i did test positive for only marijuana once...my probation officer simply told me "ok you tested positive for marijuana....dont let it happen again"....she didnt really care....she didnt even test me the next time i came in

of course i wasnt on probation for drug charges...and my probation officer was nice and i was always clean cut when i went to see her....wearing very nice clothes and basically coming off as a good member of society....which is of course the complete opposite of every single one of her other clients...coming in with their dunkin donuts coffee wearing their construction hats....ugh

Quote:
THC is one of the "SAMHSA-5". The five drugs tested for in standard NIDA approved drug tests. A single use of cannabis may be detected by a typical urine drug test for 1-6 days depending on amount smoked, individual body metabolism rates, and the cutoff level used by the test (15 ng/ml, 20 ng/ml, 50 ng/ml, 100 ng/ml). Chronic or daily use may be detected by a typical urine drug test for 7-30 days depending on the same factors listed above. Lower levels of Cannabinoids do remain in the body for longer than 30 days, but appear unlikely to result in a positive drug test due to cutoff levels.
and the 6 days is only to cover their ass, its more like 3, and thats only if ur a fatass, and thats only if u smoked a *****TON

anyways, in conclusion, STOP WORRYING SO MUCH....relax....drink LOTS OF WATER THE DAY OF THE TEST....im talking chug a gallon before u go in to pee....and u should be FINE....99% u pass....gl

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

It really was a very small amount. It wasn't even a full bowl. It had already been smoked some. I basically just cleared it.

My PO and I have not met yet. I honestly don't even know if he wants me to come in and meet with face to face, however I am expecting it. I guess when I talk with him tomorrow on the phone, I will say whatever I can to delay coming in for at least a few days. I'm not quite sure what excuse I could have, though. I have nice clothes and I am a productive member of society (and working on being a better one)

Im trying to think positive but there is so much mixed info, and my anxiety is through the roof right now

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

I also have a medical condition called Diabetes Insipidus. So if I don't take my medicine I absolutely must have water all the time and urinate quite frequently


Quote:
Diabetes insipidus (DI) is a condition characterized by excessive thirst and excretion of large amounts of severely diluted urine, with reduction of fluid intake having no effect on the latter. There are several different types of DI, each with a different cause. The most common type is central diabetes insipidus, caused by a deficiency of vasopressin, also known as antidiuretic hormone (ADH). The second common type of DI is nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, which is caused by an insensitivity of the kidneys to ADH. It can also be induced iatrogenically by various drugs.

In order to distinguish DI from other causes of excess urination, blood glucose levels, bicarbonate levels, and calcium levels need to be tested. Measurement of blood electrolytes can reveal a high sodium level (hypernatremia as dehydration develops). Urinalysis demonstrates a dilute urine with a low specific gravity. Urine osmolarity and electrolyte levels are typically low.

A fluid deprivation test helps determine whether DI is caused by:

excessive intake of fluid
a defect in ADH production
a defect in the kidneys' response to ADH
This test measures changes in body weight, urine output, and urine composition when fluids are withheld and as dehydration occurs. The body's normal response to dehydration is to concentrate urine and conserve water, so urine becomes more concentrated and urination becomes less frequent. Those with DI continue to urinate large amounts of dilute urine in spite of not drinking any fluids. Sometimes measuring blood levels of ADH during this test is also necessary.
So by not taking my medicine I will need lots of water as well as urinating about every 30 min. I am hoping this could help flush out my system faster

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, potís 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.
