Urine Drug Screen Narcotics

It is a fact that lots of schools have an increase in students who are getting addicted to drugs. Studies have shown that teens are easily prone to having an addiction to drugs throughout their high school and college years than when they are older. The truth is there are several students who use and sell drugs inside school grounds. This shows how the drugs enter the school and exactly how it Is sold to other students or to faculty members. The best way of preventing this from happening is for the school to become strict with their guidelines have surprise inspections.

The ideal person to stop such drugs and drug traffickers from going into the school is either the school management board or the principal. They are the ones who help maintain the order of the school and strictly apply the guidelines. Some principals even seek the help of drug treatment centers to assist in rehabilitating students who happen to be showing early signs of drug addiction.

Drug abuse isn't only restricted to the students of the school. Some faculty members and instructors also develop an addiction to drugs if they are able to buy them very easily. The easiest way of preventing this from happening is to seek the assistance of local law enforcement, drug treatment programs and hiring security to check and inspect everything. This helps to ensure that students will not smuggle drugs and other contraband within school grounds and for treatment centers to help those students and faculty members get treatment for their addiction.

Another way of averting drug traffickers from stepping into school grounds is to promote awareness about drugs and other addictive substances. This is an excellent way for students and faculty members to become aware about the various types of addictive substances and what to do just in case they saw somebody selling drugs. Drug symposiums and seminars are a perfect way of promoting drug awareness. The perfect speakers to invite to discuss narcotics and drug traffickers are law enforcement officers. They are properly trained and experienced in drug trafficking and about the different kinds of addictive substances.

Finally in order to steer the students far from drug use motivate them to participate in school and after school recreation. This ensures that they are able to enjoy themselves with the company of others and not think about using drugs or selling drugs.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Will Ambien register on a urine drug screen as a narcotic?

    • ANSWER:
      It certainly will. However, if you are taking it under prescription, you should tell the person who does the test. Physicians prescribe sleep medications to people at different times for different circumstances. The lab person cannot reveal that information and it will not be taken as a narcotic that is an illegal drug. That is, it will not be counted against you.

  2. QUESTION:
    toradol positive on urine drug screens?
    what is difference of toradol ,tramadol and ultram?

    • ANSWER:
      Toradol is an NSAID kind of like Alleve (Naproxen), and Tramadol is a synthetic opiate. Toradol will not show up in any drug test and if it did it is not a narcotic,opiate, or opioid.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tramadol

  3. QUESTION:
    Does propranolol show up in urine drug screens?
    If so how long after your last dose would it still show up in the urine?

    • ANSWER:
      Propranolol is not a narcotic, mind-altering drug. And urine drug screens don't test for it.

      Urine drug tests are designed to be specific for narcotic drugs. And drugs like propranolol cannot cause false positive results.

      But if you eat some bakery products with poppy seeds. Then your urine drug screen can become positive for Opium, Heroin, Morphine, and Codeine. And if you take some cold medicines. Then your urine drug screen can become positive for Methadone.

  4. QUESTION:
    Does Ultram show up on a urine drug screen?
    Since Ultram is non-narcotic, yet is like an opiate, I was wondring if it shows up on a urine drug test

    • ANSWER:
      Ultram I believe is a mild pain reliever, correct? To answer your question any drug can show up in a urine screen, depending on what is being checked for. Most companies check for marijuana, amphetamines and pain relievers (most often fall in the opiate class) like Oxycontin and Vicodene. The reason is these are the most abused drugs. The more a urine screen is checking for the more expensive they will become. They can break things down all the way to the certain class of drug and whether or not it is prescription. Ultram is a prescription drug if you have a prescription for it no need to worry, because they will find all medicines even herbal medicines in a drug screen. Once again whatever you are taking it for (parole, employment, whatever) may not be looking for that particular drug.

  5. QUESTION:
    does mucinex d affect a urine drug screen for employment?

    • ANSWER:
      It will show up if they test for it, but just list it on the form as an over the counter drug. It is not something that should effect being hired (non-narcotic).

  6. QUESTION:
    can you differentiate between clorazepate and diazepam in urinalysis?

    • ANSWER:
      Routine urine drug screens test for classes of drugs such as opiates (narcotics), ampthetamines or benzodiazepines like those you mentioned. Further testing can be done to specify the exact drug but is expensive, time consuming and usually not necessary.

  7. QUESTION:
    About how long??....a question about a urine drug screen??
    I have to have a urine drug test. Just the basic screening I suppose. My question is how long to painkillers stay in your system? I have been taking Lorcet 5/500 off and on for a few months after my shoulder surgery. I would rather not let my college know that, because I dont want them thinking I am dependent. I have a doctor who prescribes it to me and a bottle from the pharmacy . I guess Im just paranoid, but I dont want them thinking Im a druggie. How long does this medicine show up in urine or blood? Thanks. (the test is for a pre-entrance admission into a clinical setting in nursing)

    • ANSWER:
      First of all Lorcet is a narcotic. Don't listen to the person who answered the first answer. Secondly, many people in the health care industry use narcotics for body injuries and pain. You have a prescription from a physician, therefore, the company performing the test will just call and tell you that you tested positive for opiates and will ask if you have a prescription. They will check out the prescription with the physician, but don't feel like it is something bad. Also, before the drug screen, often the company will ask if you have been on prescription pain killers for any condition. So don't get crazy, You will be fine. By the way, on average the kidneys and liver will detoxify the medication in 24 hours but it can still be traceable up to 48 hours. Good luck

  8. QUESTION:
    does ambien show on a standard urine drug screening (sap 10)?

    • ANSWER:
      These are the substances that show up on a SAP 10 - Cocaine / Marijuana / Amphetamines / Barbiturates / Propoxyphene / PCP / Methaquaalones / Benzodiazepines / Opiates / Methadoneis

      Ambien is non-narcotic and is non-benzodiazepine. I would tell them that I had taken it IF I had a prescription for the med. I don't think it will show up but it is classified as a schedule 4 medication meaning it is regulated.

  9. QUESTION:
    tramadol and urine tests?
    now i've been taking tramadol for my knee for about 3 weeks now without a perscription and i have a urine test tuesday. it's a instant 5 panel drug test. the question is will it show up cuz it's not a controlled substance. now people have been on the fence about this and most say it won't and some say it will. is there someone out there that has a defenite answer. any help would be greatly appreciated
    i think the test is for opiates, marujuana, cocaine, amphetamines, and methamphetamines, i think either that or benzos .

    • ANSWER:
      No, it is not a narcotic & it's not in the 10 drug screen test for urine, so it won't be in yours. There's no test for it.

  10. QUESTION:
    how long are these drugs in your urine?
    Alright, so I was a pretty regular weed smoker for about a year. not daily, but pretty close to it. I quit because I realized my career was far more important then getting high.

    Anyway, I haven't smoked ANY in the past two weeks, and I'm not scheduled until the 22nd for my test.

    My question is how long does marijuana remain detectable in a urinalysis? After 20+ days of not using, hydration and exercise, would I be in the clear? I've done independent research on the matter and all of the results have varied- so any educated input would be appreciated.

    edit: one more question- my doc prescribed 1mg clonazepam to take every night for insomnia, and it has been working great for the past 5-6 months. How long is that substance traceable in urine?

    Thanks again....

      This is of course a the average, and could be affected by a persons chronic consumption and their body/fat ratio I ve seen someone who stopped smoking for 60 days and still failed a test because he was quite heavy, and was a chronic smoker of the buds .

      Some drugs to use where they remain undetectable are Mushrooms, LSD, Peyote each can be detected if they are specifically looking for them but only for an average of 12-14 hours maximum, so they are the perfect drugs to enjoy
      The worst one you can do is Pot, as it remains detectable the longest of all
      Most all narcotics and cocaine and amphetamines have about a 72 hour window of detect ability, making them pretty safe, in that you could do them Friday night, and be clean by Monday
      Some exceptions are drugs that fall into the category of Benzodiazepines, these are valium, colonopin, ruhpynol, they can remain detectable for 9-14 days

      A good way to prepare for a drug test is to first abstain from consuming any more drugs, flush your system with cranberry juice, the more the better this could cause your urine to appear very clear, this could arouse suspicion, so get yourself some B Complex vitamins, but only take or of a pill the morning before the test, as this will turn your urine yellow immediately If you take a whole one, it can actually make your urine so yellow I ve seen it damn near look fluorescent, and that s not good either
      The whole idea is for it to appear normal and be clean
      With a job test, you could use a clean urine of someone else, but you must use a container that holds enough of a sample and it must be of body temperature To do this, take a squirt bottle such as an Elmer s glue bottle and empty it and clean it out completely place the urine sample in the bottle and loosely place the top on and place in a microwave oven, give it 15 seconds to heat it up make sure you do this at least an hour before you need to give the sample as you want it body temperature at the time you give the sample,
      place the bottle with tape or something to hold it in place right under your nuts and or the crease of your leg in your crotch The idea is it can cool down to your body temperature, instead of trying to heat a cold specimen up to body temperature Then when you go into the bathroom, be very careful and empty the urine into the specimen cup, being very careful to not drop the cap , hence why I suggested something with a twist/squirt top They carefully listen for sounds that indicate you may be doing something to defeat their test Only give just enough to reach the line they ask for

      Of course that was for using a substitute specimen Now if you want to use your own, which I always do, you follow the instructions above about flushing your system and abstaining, and then the day of the test you must be careful to do it this way; Never give the first urine of the day as your test sample, this contains the heaviest concentration of impurities and should never be used, second, when you go to give the sample, start your stream of urine in the toilet, then in mid stream fill the specimen cup only to the level they ask for, then finish in the toilet DO NOT FLUSH the toilet, they will either flush it for you or tell you when to flush it The reason you use mid stream is that the beginning of your stream contains the most impurities and the end contains a higher percentage than mid stream So all you have to do is be under the level that they determine to be positive and your clean They DO NOT say they detected a trace amount, you re either Negative or Positive the only other conclusion possible is Inconclusive, or adultered, of which you don t want either of those Inconclusive happens to people who flush their system so bad without replacing color and electrolytes , indicating deception.

  11. QUESTION:
    Drug Test!!!!!?
    Ok i am 15 i have a drug test in 6 days i smoked yesterday. Is there any way to pass, please someone respond with some ways to try and beat this test, (also please no serves you right or you should be caught comments) thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Ignore those idoits that told you to eat the poppy seeds. While the seeds of the opium poppy (papaver somniferum) are non-narcotic, ingesting enough of them will make your urine screen show up as positive for opiates. So stay away from poppy seed bagels.

      As far as beating the test, if its a simple "pee in this cup" test, you have nothing to worry about. Stop smoking, and start drinking water now, up until the day of your test. You said that you smoked yesterday, but neglected to say what it was you smoked. I'm gonna assume it was weed. It doesn't really matter anyway. Drug tests do not screen for drugs in your urine, they screen for drug metabolites, or the processed form of the drug you used. Follow these instructions carefully and to the letter:

      1. Start drinking water. Get a gallon jug from the grocery store and make it your best friend. As you start to drink regularly, your body will get used to urinating regualry. When the jug is empty fill it up again and start over.

      2. You're going to notice that your urine is going to get quite clear. If you go in and give a sample that looks like water, you're going to arouse suspicion. Take some complex B vitamins about three days before your test, and keep taking them up until the day of your test. The vitamins will make you urine yellow.

      3. The day of your test, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES GIVE THEM YOUR FIRST URINE. Don't even give them your second if you can help it. If this means that you have to get up extra early so that you can piss a few times, so be it.

      You have six days until the moment of truth; this is plenty of time. Now here are some other things you should know:

      A. It really doesn't matter what you drink, as long as you're urinating frequently. The important thing is to flush your system.

      B. Don't try drinking vinegar or bleach to alter the pH of your urine; this does not work. It only works if you add those respective items TO your urine. You're probably going to have someone watching you piss anyway. So nix that idea.

      C. Don't feel the need to water until your stomach is gonna burst. It's just going to make you uncomfortable. The key here is to urinate regularly.

      D. Finally, The more frequent a smoker you are, the more metabolites you're going to have in your sytem, and the more you're going to have to flush you system. If you're an occasional smoker, you're fine. If you smoke more regularly, then you'd better get started NOW.

      While I don't want you to get in any trouble, what I do want you to do is exercise some intelligence when using scheduled drugs. Not everybody is going to put you on the right path.

      Keep your head up, and stay outta trouble, kid.

  12. QUESTION:
    What is the difference in Darvocet and Vicodine in drug tests?
    I got into a bad car accident at the end of April and my doctor prescribed me Vicodin for my pain. I have carpel tunnel in both hands, lower back pain that goes into both legs and so on and so forth. Anyway, I am in recovery and have been doing really well in the condition that I am in. I don't like taking the Vicodin often and my best friend has a script for Darvocet, so I switch with her a couple times b/c as far as I know the Darvocet is milder than the vicodin. I am on probation and they gave me a drug test. What do you think that test will show. They know I am on the Vicodin, I know they are both opiates. Do you think it will show a difference though? Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      In a regular urine drug screen, they will test only for opiates in general. Since they know you are on Vicodin, when you test positive for opiates, there will be no problem. There are tests that can tell the difference between opiates, but they are not used by probation officers. I am in a pain clinic, and they give me a random urine drug test which they send to a lab called Ameritox. It can tell exactly what kind of opiates are in my system. They do this so that they know if I am taking other medications than what they prescribe me.

      BUT.... you shouldn't be taking your friend's medication. If you don't like taking the Vicodin or don't need a narcotic pain reliever that is that strong, talk to your doctor and get your own prescription for Darvocet or Tylenol #3 or even Ultram. All are milder than the Vicodin. Just don't take your friend's medication. It's stupid and dangerous to take medication not prescribed to you, not to mention illegal. If you get caught with that Darvocet and it isn't prescribed to you, that's a probation violation and you'll go to jail. Your doctor likely won't a have a problem giving you something milder for your pain, and you won't have to worry about what your drug test will show!

    brian- your a complete moron, do you just sit around all day finding typos and trying to seem funny? your the definition of a dbag. i bet your a 35 year old fat fuckk who lives with his mom because nobody has liked you since the first grade. idiot.

    Ari-weed may be bad but your picture is probably the gayest thing i have ever seen in my life, so your opinion doesnt even matter

    • ANSWER:
      Redleg is partially right, drug screens do not test for time periods, they test for levels that you have excreted in your urine.

      However, different types of narcotics metabolize at different yet measurable rates within your system.

      Alcohol fully metabolizes within a few hours
      Opiates fully metabolize in several weeks to a month
      Cannabinoids metabolize in well over a month (but are undetectable in urine before 2-3 days after smoking)

      If the last time you smoked was over 7 months ago, you have little to worry about. If it was 30 days or less, you will almost certainly test positive.

      But the only way to ensure that you will not test positive on a drug screen if you want to join the military is to NOT TAKE NARCOTICS.

  14. QUESTION:
    if its a fact about urine drug test can tell if its male or female?

    • ANSWER:
      A drug test can test for drugs. usually screens for 10 types of drugs including alcohol and prescription narcotics. Some clinics or lab collect urine for testing and they are able to detect gender from the sample. This kind of testing is expensive and usually used for pre employment screening. but the test sold for home use, or by employers, are quick screen tests, that are very accurate and results widely accepted. In a criminal/correctional situation any unusual temperatures of the urine will be detected and retesting will be required..often with an eye witness. some people use hair testing and that is ultra informative..and gives history as far back as 6 months or more.

  15. QUESTION:
    How long does the drugs speed stay in your system?
    im curently taknig the drug speed, and was just wondering how long it stays in my system

    • ANSWER:
      Toxicology screens (drug testing) done on blood and urine specimens can reveal the presence of many chemicals and drugs in the body. The sensitivity depends upon the sensitivity of the test, the substance itself, when the substance was taken, and the testing laboratory. Blood tests are more likely to detect the presence of an abused substance than urine tests, however, urine drug screens are more frequently done. Opiates and narcotics are usually present in the urine 12 to 36 hours after the last use, depending on the amount used and the frequency. Central Nervous System stimulants such as cocaine can be detected in urine anywhere between 1 to 12 days, again depending in frequency of use. Central Nervous System depressants such as Valium and Xanax are detected up to 7 days after the last day of use, mostly depending on the substance used and how quickly it is eliminated by the body (half-life). Most hallucinogens are also detectable in the urine up to 7 days after the last use. However, cannabis can be detected up to 28 days in regular users. This is only a really rough guide and each person eliminates (gets rid of a substance) at different rates and many factors can influence a test result including how regularly the drug was used. It is impossible to predict whether or not a drug may be present in your bodily fluid or whether the test used will be sensitive enough to detect it.

  16. QUESTION:
    how long hydrocodone stays in ones system?
    ive been on hydroco because i had my teeth pulled im going for a job interveiw and have to pass a drug screening how long will the hydroco stay in my system ?

    • ANSWER:
      Urine drug screens can show traces of hydrocodone for about 3-4 days after last use typically, but hydrocodone is not specifically tested for in all employment drug screens, so depending what specific drug screens they run, it might not show up at all even on the same day you last used it. (See source below.)

      For most jobs, you can't be considered to have failed a drug screen if it shows you are using a drug for which you legally have a prescription. If you fail a drug screen, the testing agency will call you and ask you to prove what drugs you have prescriptions for, and give you 48 hours typically to prove it. If you do, you'll be considered to have passed. The exception is for a job (e.g. airline pilot, bus driver, or nuclear power plant operator) where you can't be using narcotics for safety reasons. And of course if they spot it and ask you and you can't prove you have a legitimate hydrocodone prescription, you will be considered to have failed the drug screen.

    Fentanyl and Urine Drug Test?
    Hello All.
    Against my better judgment I chewed about 5 mcg of Fentanyl a couple of hours ago (about 1am)
    and I may have a drug screen for my new job on monday. The reason I am posting Is that I have searched all over about the detection of Fentanyl in urine screens and have come up with more questions than answers. Some say Fentanyl will not show up in a urine test because it is a "synthetic opiate", will it show? Ive seen people say yes and no to this. Ive also seen variants on the detection time. I found a site saying that Fentanyl is fat soluble and that detection would be possible for up to a week. Some clarity on this matter would put my mind at ease a great deal. Thanks!
    male 5'6 165 lbs 23yrs

    • ANSWER:
      Fent is very quick in and out of your body. In fact, it's the fastest mode of action narcotic on the market. I think you'll be fine. You're young and your metabolism will burn it through. Learn from your mistakes, however.

    Will a urine drug screening test detect the levels of methadone, oxycodone, etc. I am taking?
    Will a urine drug screening test detect the levels of methadone, oxycodone, etc. I am taking? I know it will detect the narcotics are in my system, but can a urine test detect the levels of the medication that I have been taking daily or in recent days? Example.. my doctor prescribes me 90mgs of methadone a day. If I have only been taking 30mgs.. will my doctor be able to know that from a urine screening? Or can the levels only be detected through a blood test?
    Actually, I have never sold a pill or any other type of drug in my entire life. The doctor prescribes me 90mgs a day but if I took that much I would feel like a zombie. I have all the "leftovers". So no, I was not asking because "I sell any" I was asking because I was concerned the doctor would accuse me of selling them ..exactly as everyone here assumed.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes. Doctors routinely check patients that are using meds long term with urine drug panels.

  21. QUESTION:
    If taking oxycontin, when will a drug screen come back negative?

    • ANSWER:
      It will come back positive for narcotics.

      I don't think it stays that long in your body if it's a urine test. If they take hair samples then forget it.

      If you have a prescription for it tell them.

  22. QUESTION:
    Pregnancy and Vicodin?
    I'll try to make a long story short. So my boyfriend of 5 years and i had been trying to concieve for several months and stopped trying when I tore a ligament on a hike in early august. I was prescribed vicodin and was on them for a few months taking 2 - 4 a day. I was told I needed to have surgery after having an MRI on september 20th confirming that the tear was really bad. So I started taking the pill again.Wouldn't you know the week of having the MRI i was pregnant, but just pregnant so it was to early to test. I found out i was pregnant on October 5th. Was taking the vicodin up until the 3rd of october. Had my first prenatal visit yesterday and they did a drug screen an the opiates came up presumpitive postive. I'm freaking out, because all i have been taking is reg tylenol and its not every day. how long can the vicodin stay in your system for, if I was taking it since mid august?

    • ANSWER:
      Was your drug screen a urine drug screen or a hair drug screen? Vicodin can be detected in hair for weeks after use, but is normally out of other body tissue much sooner. (Hair close to the follicle shows what's been in the body recently. Hair out near the tip shows what was in the body weeks ago.)

      Even daily use of Vicodin is normally undetectable in urine a few days after stopping the drug. It would be very unusual for someone who had not taken any narcotics for three weeks to test positive for them in a urine drug screen. I realize that you're asking not because you're worried about failing the drug screen--you're worried about your baby. But I'll share this link with you because it does show that what you're reporting is not at all typical:
      http://www.drugs.com/forum/drug-information/howlong-does-vicodin-stay-your-system-17429.html

      So what explains your drug test result? The most likely explanation is that you're mistaken--that you did indeed take at least one tablet of Vicodin or were exposed to another narcotic after October 20th--it may have been accidental if you truly did not deliberately take Vicodin. It may also be possible that your body tissues retain the drug long after the great majority of people have metabolized it out of their bodies, but that is a stretch. It's not at all common.

      Talk it over with your obstetrician.

  23. QUESTION:
    Drug Test?
    Is it normal to ask your babysitter to submit to a drug test?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, please do. Just keep in mind that they may have narcotic rxes.
      You can in the US atleast buy completly at home drug kits that test urine.. they work the same way home preg tests do.

      EDIT: To the people who said they wouldnt fool with a drug test or would quit if asked... why?? any other job you would be expected pass atleast a urine screen, why not babysitting? I mean, even mcdonalds gives drug tests.

  24. QUESTION:
    Drug Test Help! Vicodin in Urine Test?
    Ok, So im an idiot. And no I'm not a drug addict. Heres my story. I sprained my ankle approximately a week ago, and i took 2 Tylenol for 2 days, and the pain wouldn't go away so on MAY 16th, 2010 I took 1 and a half Vicodin 7.5 mg + 3.25 mg so 10.75 MG in total, at 10 AM. The Vicodin were prescribed to my mom for her root canal or something of that sort, and I knew they were pain medication. Today is MAY 20th, 2010 and I got a job interview at some place and was hired, but I was required to give a drug test. I have a high metabolism but never drink water, im 125 pounds 5'9 and 19 years old. These pills were also expired and had no effect what so ever on me. The drug test was a urine sample, will it come back positive, and how long does Vicodin stay in the urine? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Nadine is wrong Vicodin or the generic hydrocodone comes in many combinations with Tylenol It comes in 5/325mg, 5/500mg, 7.5/500mg, 7.5/750mg,10/325mg, 10/650mg, 10/500mg (could be more I just can't think of any at this time) the different combinations have different names ie. Norco, Vicodin, Lorcet, Lortab. The generic is the most prescribed hydrocodone/apap. The small number is the narcotic portion and the large number is acetaminophen or Tylenol. As far as how long it takes to not show up on a urine drug screen varies from person to person. It is the metabolites that show up in the urine screen. Usually 3 days but it varies.

  25. QUESTION:
    Possible drug test this week?
    On the 4th I smoked a couple bowls - I have never smoked ever before. I weight 97 pounds, 5'2" and I am a very active person. I have a job interview thursday and I might have to do a drug test within 48 hours of that. Would I pass by then?

    • ANSWER:
      here ya go...
      Basic drug testing information What I am about to share with you has been tested successfully .

      The basic drug screen covers the following, these are the limits with which you are determined to be positive.
      SUBSTANCEIMMUNOASSAYGC / MS
      Cannabis50 ng/ml15 ng/ml
      Cocaine300 ng/ml150 ng/ml
      Opiates300 ng/ml300 ng/ml
      Amphetamines1000 ng/ml500 ng/ml
      PCP25 ng/ml25 ng/ml

      Below is the approximate time that different drugs remain detectable

      SUBSTANCEBLOODSALIVASWEATURINEHAIR
      Alcoholunknownunknownunknown12-24 hrsn/a
      Amphetamineunknown3 daysunknown1-4 daysup to 90 days
      Barbituratesunknownunknownunknown1-21 daysunknown

      Cannabis (habitual use)2 weeks12-24 hrsunknownup to 12 wksup to 90 days
      Cocaineunknown1 dayunknown4-5 daysup to 90 days
      Codeine/Morphineunknown12-36 hrsunknown2-4 daysup to 90 days
      Heroinunknownunknownunknown2-4 daysup to 90 days
      Methamphetamine1-3 daysunknownunknown3-5 daysup to 90 days
      PCP1-3 days3 daysunknown3-7 daysup to 90 days

      This is of course a the average, and could be affected by a persons chronic consumption and their body/fat ratio I ve seen someone who stopped smoking for 60 days and still failed a test because he was quite heavy, and was a chronic smoker of the buds .

      Some drugs to use where they remain undetectable are Mushrooms, LSD, Peyote each can be detected if they are specifically looking for them but only for an average of 12-14 hours maximum, so they are the perfect drugs to enjoy
      The worst one you can do is Pot, as it remains detectable the longest of all
      Most all narcotics and cocaine and amphetamines have about a 72 hour window of detect ability, making them pretty safe, in that you could do them Friday night, and be clean by Monday
      Some exceptions are drugs that fall into the category of Benzodiazepines, these are valium, colonopin, ruhpynol, they can remain detectable for 9-14 days

      A good way to prepare for a drug test is to first abstain from consuming any more drugs, flush your system with cranberry juice, the more the better this could cause your urine to appear very clear, this could arouse suspicion, so get yourself some B Complex vitamins, but only take or of a pill the morning before the test, as this will turn your urine yellow immediately If you take a whole one, it can actually make your urine so yellow I ve seen it damn near look fluorescent, and that s not good either
      The whole idea is for it to appear normal and be clean
      With a job test, you could use a clean urine of someone else, but you must use a container that holds enough of a sample and it must be of body temperature To do this, take a squirt bottle such as an Elmer s glue bottle and empty it and clean it out completely place the urine sample in the bottle and loosely place the top on and place in a microwave oven, give it 15 seconds to heat it up make sure you do this at least an hour before you need to give the sample as you want it body temperature at the time you give the sample,
      place the bottle with tape or something to hold it in place right under your nuts and or the crease of your leg in your crotch The idea is it can cool down to your body temperature, instead of trying to heat a cold specimen up to body temperature Then when you go into the bathroom, be very careful and empty the urine into the specimen cup, being very careful to not drop the cap , hence why I suggested something with a twist/squirt top They carefully listen for sounds that indicate you may be doing something to defeat their test Only give just enough to reach the line they ask for

      Of course that was for using a substitute specimen Now if you want to use your own, which I always do, you follow the instructions above about flushing your system and abstaining, and then the day of the test you must be careful to do it this way; Never give the first urine of the day as your test sample, this contains the heaviest concentration of impurities and should never be used, second, when you go to give the sample, start your stream of urine in the toilet, then in mid stream fill the specimen cup only to the level they ask for, then finish in the toilet DO NOT FLUSH the toilet, they will either flush it for you or tell you when to flush it The reason you use mid stream is that the beginning of your stream contains the most impurities and the end contains a higher percentage than mid stream So all you have to do is be under the level that they determine to be positive and your clean They DO NOT say they detected a trace amount, you re either Negative or Positive the only other conclusion possible is Inconclusive, or adultered, of which you don t want either of those Inconclusive happens to people who flush their system so bad without replacing color and electrolytes , indicating suspicion, or some people actually try to add something directly to the sample such as salt, and that will get you an adultered result, which is as bad as positive

      If your young and have a high metabolism and are an occasional user, you can clean yourself out pretty easily and take the test using your own urine with little fear
      One way to know in advance is to get a friends company on company letterhead type up a letter saying you are to get a drug test, go to a drug testing facility somewhere away from the one your going to be sent to and pay for a get a test yourself.. That way you ll know for sure if you have any doubt, remember to have the letter state that the results may be released to you to bring back to them This is extreme, but once I felt the need to do this to be sure, and it was worth the extra money to know I was clean of course this was a probationary test, where if I would have failed, I would have gone to jail, so it was especially critical for me to be clean
      Also I might add that if your being tested as a condition of probation they will likely go right into the bathroom with you and observe the whole process very closely, so using a substitute sample would be out of the question This happened to me
      I hope that the information contained herein was helpful to you, and I hope everything goes well for you
