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...

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).

DETECTION PERIODS

Note:The ranges depend on amount and frequency of use, metabolic rate, body mass, age, overall health, drug tolerance, and urine pH

Alcohol unknown
Amphetamine 3 days
Cannabis (single use) 14 hrs
Cannabis (habitual use) 14 hrs

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.

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... :think:

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.

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.

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? :D

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.

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.
