How do i pass a urine drug test?
i was clean for so long and i took one hit cause i felt so deppressed it didn't help out at all but i have a drug test in like 2 days any hints to pass it ????

um..drink a lot of water or let a friend piss in a cup or something then u keep it in a bottle then when u go take your test out their in istead lol

u can do it with urine detox drinks or pills
100% guarantee
look link below

One hit probably won't cause you to fail if that's all it was. Your urine will likely test positive, but it will be below the threshold of a positive test.

If you were passing it around all night, you're probably in trouble.

Most drugs can be flushed out of your system over about 48 hours by drinking a lot of water. Marijuana, however, is soluble in oil, not water, so it remains in your body much longer. Heavy users may fail a urinalysis even if they haven't smoked in the last thirty days.

Herbal cover-ups, vitamins and all that stuff is just a waste of money. They won't do a thing.

Best thing you can do is quit the drugs and find some new friends who won't expose you to temptation.

dri k your own urine

I don't think one hit is going to effect you but I would drink LOTS AND LOTS of water.

That's a know brain er dont get high but on the real player its called golden sell one hour before test and have a nice day its sold at your finer food and drug stors but first go to a g.n.c vitiman store its gineric and cheep or pay 100.00 buxcks and get your med card!

First of all the best to pass a drug test is not to use drugs. Second it's only a temporary fix, it will never make a problem better or go away 9 times out of 10 it gets worst. But word on the streets is to drop a small piece of alkaselzer in the urine sample. (But try it at your own risk). Good luck!!!!

Well, you just realized the hard way that even one hit is enough to screw up your life. I recommend drinking lots of water.

You made a decision that probably isn't going to pay off for you this time. The best bet is to remember how using drugs worked out this time and make different decisions next time.

Well, it all depends on what kind of drugs that you are using. It also depends on the amount. B vitamins can really help clean your system out faster, drinking alot of water, and exercising. Another vitamin you may want to add is niacin but only a couple days before your drug test.

If ur asking how to clean ur urine, then u can drink some vinegar straight up. This usually does the trick. Buy one of those home drug testing kits to see what the results show to kno if u need to do anything. If so, drink vinegar, then retest using the home testing kit (usually at Walgreen's).

pass urine drug test

Make smarter decisions in the future. But you can go to any herbal store and they have supplements that you can take for a quick clean.

Drug Testing And Other Possible Conditions Of Employment

While some may consider drug testing, credit checks, reference checks, and other pre-employment checks to be Gestapo tactics, they are a requirement for many companies. And, yes, in most cases they are legal. Remember that little section of legalese at the end of the employment application you didn’t really read? Your signature on that document is what gives them the right. So be ready to live up to the terms to which you have already agreed. By the way, if you look closely at your acceptance letter, you may notice that the offer is contingent on you passing whatever pre-employment checks and/or tests they may have. Even if it isn’t in the letter, it was probably contained within the application you signed earlier. Most employers consider these tests to be “conditions of employment,” and these conditions can be in effect even after you have started with the company.

An example of this “condition of employment” clause being invoked occurred when a recently hired grad was found to have lied about some information on the employment application. There have been numerous cases of graduates who have been hired and then fired by the new employer based solely on the conditions of that document. As long as you have been straight and honest, this should not be a problem for you.

On the other hand, the pre-employment check that many college students fear most is the pre-employment drug screening—and rightly so. A strong note of caution: if you have in the past or are presently using illegal drugs, you are strongly advised to stop using them—immediately! The day before—or even the week before—the test will likely be too late to achieve “clean” results. But if you make a commitment to steer clear far enough in advance, you may give your body enough time to detoxify and flush out. While many substances can clear in under a week, there are some that will stay with you much longer. I recently spoke with a graduate who had accepted employment, only to fail the drug test. Reason? He had used marijuana thirty-one days before the drug test—and failed.

There is no simple answer as to how long drugs will remain in your system, since the answer is influenced by the specific drug half-life, intensity of the usage, method of usage, length of usage, tolerance, fluid intake, body size, body fat, metabolism, andthe specific range which the drug testing lab uses to signify a “positive” for drug use. But the following table provides some general guidelines for the amount of time a drug can be detected by most standard drug tests:
Drug Detection Time
Alcohol 6–24 hours
Amphetamines 2–3 days
Barbituates 1 day to 3 weeks
Benzodiazepines 3–7 days
Cocaine 2–5 days
Codeine 3–5 days
Euphorics (MDMA, Ecstasy) 1–3 days
LSD 1-4 days
Marijuana (THC) 7–30 days
Methadone 3–5 days
Methaqualone 14 days
Opiates 1-4 days
Phencyclidine (PCP) 2–4 days
Steroids (anabolic) 14–30 days

Keep in mind that detection time listed above does not mean that the drug is fully expelled from your body within that amount of time—just that it has dissipated enough that it can no longer be accurately detected—or at least is not high enough to register a “positive” on a drug test. Most drugs are treated by the body as toxins which take time to eliminate. Rather than allow excess toxins to potentially affect vital organs, they are often stored in fat cells, making them typically difficult to release or detoxify from the body.

The basic drug test used by most corporate drug testing programs is called a “Five-Screen” (or “NIDA-5” or “SAMHSA-5”) which is testing for five types of drugs:

1. Cannabinoids (Marijuana, Hashish)
2. Cocaine (Cocaine, Crack, Benzoylecognine)
3. Opiates (Heroin, Opium, Codeine, Morphine)
4. Amphetamines (Amphetamines, Methamphetamines, Speed)
5. Phencyclidine (PCP, Angel Dust)

However, many drug testing firms now offer a “Ten-Screen” which expands to include five additional drugs:

1. Barbituates (Phenobarbital, Secobarbitol, Pentobarbital, Butalbital, Amobarbital)
2. Methaqualone (Qualuudes)
3. Benzodiazepines (Tranquilizers-Diazepam, Valium, Librium, Ativan, Xanax, Clonopin, Serax, Halcion, Rohypnol)
4. Methadone
5. Propoxyphene (Darvon compounds)

One major drug testing company is now offering the Ten-Screen for the same price as the Five-Screen. Result? Many employers end up testing for more, rather than less. Here is a list of other drugs that can be included in drug tests.

1. Ethanol (yes, that’s alcohol)
2. LSD
3. Hallucinogens (Psilocybin, Mescaline, MDMA, MDA, MDE)
4. Inhalents (Toluene, Xylene, Benzene)

If there is a drug out there, there is a drug test for it.

How about one more thing to worry about? Second-hand smoke from marijuana and crack cocaine can be absorbed into your hair. Problem? Some companies are now using hair testing to determine drug usage. Answer? Don’t even hang around others who are doing drugs. It can still be absorbed into your system and produce a positive test result. “I didn’t inhale . . .” is not a valid response. And sufficient second-hand smoke exposure can also cause failure of standard urine drug tests. You could fail both a primary and secondary test, with no recourse other than saying that it was someone else. It’s just not worth the risk.

So if you have been exposed to illegal drugs, your best insurance for a clean drug test is to stop using them immediately. And not just temporarily—permanently. Drug test or no drug test, using illegal drugs (and excesses of alcohol) will eventually catch up with you—sooner (if you are foolish enough to use them during work hours) or later (if you obliterate the rest of your life outside work).

Please note: this is not a lecture from Mom and Dad on the evils of drugs. This is a straightforward and honest warning from someone who has seen the negative effects that drugs can have in the workplace. Drugs have no place in work society today and never will.

If you are not a drug user and you fail the drug screening (it does happen), be as straightforward with the employer as possible, let them know that you are not a drug user and ask them if they would please do a confirmation test. Recent estimates from the Journal of Analytic Toxicology showed error rates of 5 to 14 percent on this initial test. The following is a list of over-the-counter medications which have been known to cause false positives in drug testing:

* Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin)
* Midol
* Nuprin
* Sudafed
* Vicks Nasal Spray
* Neosynephren
* Ephedra and Ephedrine-based products (often used in diet products)
* Detromethorphan
* Vicks 44

There are more, but suffice to say that not every drug test is accurate. That’s why almost all drug testing companies ask you in advance what medications you are presently taking or have taken in the last thirty days. Make sure you list them all, even over-the-counter medications. Some drug testing companies will either have a doctor (or other medical professional) personally interview those who fail a drug test to determine if there was a potential false positive.

If you do receive a failing grade (actually referred to as a “positive” on your drug test—this is one test you do NOT want a positive—you want all negatives) on your drug test, ask to be retested with a confirmation or secondary test. Many employers do not automatically perform the confirmation test since it is significantly more expensive than the initial test. However, if they are unwilling to offer retesting due to the expense, offer to pay the expense on your own and then use a different testing service—ideally a secondary testing provider recommended by the employer so that you won’t have a credibility problem with the second test. If you are turned down in your request or you have additional problems, you may want to seek the advice of a competent attorney for further counsel on your available options
