Peeing In and Around Cups

So this summer I could potentially get a job at an Air Force base. In order to get this job, I have to take a drug test and pass.

Now, i'm not particularly worried, because the last time that I smoked was the beginning of december and prior to that I hadn't smoked since early november.

But how long does that kinda shit take to get out of your system?

Also, my roommates still smoke in our apartment all the time. If I'm hanging around people smoking and getting second hand smoke, you think that could cause me to fail a drug test?

YeahYeah on

    It's probably worked itself out, but the best practice is to stop smoking the stuff in the first place, so you don't get busted with random tests.

    You'll be fine. Just google for info about THC and you'll get everything you need to know.

    For a non regular smoker, like you, it usually cleans itself out in about 2 weeks, for a regular smoker, its about a month.

    You're fine.

    Not sure about second hand smoke though.

    Second hand smoke isn't going to show up, or at least it's very, very unlikely. To be safe you should stop being around them when they do though, at least so you won't be tempted to do it. It should be out of your system by now already.

    Also, yeah, I'm in no way advising you on how to live your life or anything, but if you're going to start working on a base, stop smoking pot. Just saying....

    This particular drug is VERY finicky about how long it stays in your system. However, even the longest term smoker can clear in one month. If you only do it once, it COULD be out of your system in as little as 72 hours. It's all about build-up. Like the people have already said you're definitely fine (unless they hair-test you, and the only people I know of who pay for THAT test are casinos). You definitely should stop; however, if you regress and then get worried, the best way to get it out of your system quicker is exercise. Lots of aerobic exercise combined with drinking more water than usual will burn the shit out of your fat quicker and get it flushed out.

    Oh, and the secondhand smoke thing. In general drug tests are 10-50/300 w/NIT. What that means is the test goes for 10 drugs, with a 50 ng/mL cutoff for marijuana and 300 ng/mL cutoff for cocaine. NIT tests for some of the different ways to mask drugs in the urine. If you test positive, they do a different, more difficult test with a 15 ng/mL test for marijuana. This system is setup to allow way more false negatives so that a false positive is pretty much impossible. Therefore, the ONLY way secondhand smoke is going to show up on a pisstest is if you were with people hotboxing a closet or a car for an hour or two. At that point, nobody cares whether or not you were actually smoking or not. Hope this helps.
