You're screwed and you know it.
no im jsut curious
depends on whose balls you've been licking...
They're pretty effective. You might be lucky, maybe they won't test for pot (I'm assuming that would be the problem). You never know, I have known people who have passed drugs tests a few days after hitting the bong. Not all places test for weed, they look for the hardcore drugs...
I'll test any drugs you have, just send them my way......
anything i can do? i was hitting the crack pipe pretty hard there yesterday. but seriously if i havent smoked in like 2 weeks and i only usually smoke like once a month am i screwed?
Information for Saliva Tests
*Are a little more expensive than urine testing, but less than hair or blood. (~$15-$75).
*Are considered a relatively unintrusive method of drug testing.
*Are becoming more common.
*Are easy to administer but require lab processing to ensure accuracy.
*Detect use primarily within the past few days.
*Can detect more recent use than other testing methods.
*Have no nationally accepted standards or cutoff concentrations for detection, making results greatly dependent on the specific product purchased. This could also make results less-reliable and/or acceptable for legal cases.
*More reliable for detection of Methamphetamine and Opiates, less reliable for THC or Cannabinoids (2004).
Note:The ranges depend on amount and frequency of use, metabolic rate, body mass, age, overall health, drug tolerance, and urine pH
SUBSTANCE SALIVA TEST
Amphetamine 3 days
Cannabis (single use) 14 hrs
Cannabis (habitual use) 14 hrs
Cocaine 1 day
Codeine/Morphine 7-21 hrs
PCP 3 days
Not sure about swabs, but I know people who have pissed hot after 60 days. Depends on your body though.
Bet on being screwed, that way there's little shock if you pop.
if you only smoke once a month and havent in two weeks your good
heather you are cool
ive pissed clean with a drink 4days after smoking,, and i was burnin like 4x/week. saliva,, couldnt tell you.. 2 weeks is usually enough to get clean.. lots of water.. and get some riding in to help metabolize any traces left..
yeah ive been drinking tons of water and stuff since i found out i was gonna be applying for jobs(after i smoked)
Interesting. Looks like saliva tests are only good for weeding out the real addicts who can't go more than a day or so without their substance of choice.
14 hours? 7-21 hours? Almost seems not worth testing at all. Only the hardiest drug addicts can't go 24 hours...
Just hope they don't do a urine test
SUBSTANCE URINE TEST
Alcohol 6-24 hrs
Amphetamine 1-4 days
Cannabis (single use) 2-3 days
Cannabis (habitual use) up to 12 wks
Cocaine 4-5 days
Codeine/Morphine 2-4 days
PCP 3-7 days
Methamphetamine 3-5 days
Or even worse...a hair test
SUBSTANCE HAIR TEST
Amphetamine up to 90 days
Cannabis (single use) up to 90 days
Cannabis (habitual use) up to 90 days
Cocaine up to 90 days
Codeine/Morphine up to 90 days
PCP up to 90 days
Methamphetamine up to 90 days
That is what they are mostly used for and also because they are fairly inexpensive.
Edit: Saliva tests are more commonly used by insurance companies or law enforcement agencies, rather then employers.
If it is a urine test, you will not pass. Dont bother with the kits that guarantee you will pass-they do not work.
I know someone that went into the navy and had to take a urine test within 2 weeks of smoking. He told his recruiter that he wasn't going to pass and the recruiter said to go to the pharmacy and buy a bottle of cranberry pills. He said that if he ate the whole bottle within 12 hours of the test he would pass and whaddya know it worked. I don't know the details of exactly what dosage it was or anything so don't rely on this.
well the guy doing my interview told me its a saliva test.he was looking at me kinda like he thought i was a stoner because hes like "and you gotta get the drug test.....its a saliva test so dont worry"
Go to you local head shop, and there a pills(don't remember what they are called, but I have a big supply of them) and before you get tested, you take one like every 10 minutes for 2 hours, and it *hides* the substances in your system. If you need a hookup, talk to me on AIM, I could sell you some.
Where are you trying to get a job at? Surely there are other places to work that don't test? Maybe get a job as a drug dealer?
what if you shave your head? do they take your pubs for the hair test?
I guess you'll have to shave your head AND your junk.
oh crap did I just say that? This thread is going to be deleted now!
where did you find this?
I perform drug testing for my clients and the information was provided by the company that supplies us with our drug testing supplies.
...but google would work too.
ok now im screwed i think. they jsut called and told me there switching it from a saliva test to a urine test. if i drink so much water the day of that it doenst have anything in it will they fail me or give me another test on another day?its for vons btw,
Not feeling at all sorry for you.
You know better than to smoke dope.
Just drink LOTS of water. Never not let yourself drink water and you'll be fine. And if you fail, find another job. It's not like its for probation or anything.
yeah bud my mom will find out and that will end my life until im 18
its funny that you say that because that last time i did it i was like ok im done i have a lot of races coming up
Drinking lots of water will help. However, some places will not accept your urine sample if it is too diluted, so there's a chance they may tell you to come back again later. But drink a lot of water between now and when you test, it'll help flush your system.
Cranberry juice, coffee, there's a million things people tell you. Forget it, just drink the water. They're all just diuretics (spelling?) that make you urinate more and if you drink sufficient water, you'll have to go anyway.
Now, if what you said is true - that you do it once a month, and you haven't done it in two weeks - well, you're young with probably a pretty good metabolism, there's a good chance you'll be fine. But there's no guarantees, and there is nothing that you can do to get a guarantee. You made the choice to smoke, and this is now a potential consequence. Best thing to do is to face it like a man - if you fail, well, you fail and you're going to have to live with it.
If there was even the remotest possibility that you were even looking for a job, you have to lay off it - there are just too many places that drug test now.
Anyway, good luck. Hope you pass. Lots of water, and remember, the results are confidential.
How do you figure? They don't say why you don't get hired, you usually get the "the paperwork didn't go through" answer. Relax. Besides, cocaine is waaaaaay more fun than weed.
Yea, how the hell would his mom find out?
