    I've had to take many pee tests for jobs and such. I've also performed many home drug tests in preparation.

    I've found that I can get below the 50ng/mL threshold for THC  metabolites after just 12 days of abstention. I'm a middle aged dude, with a moderate amount of body fat (love handles, moobs, etc.)

    Your mileage may vary, but I encourage everyone to go get a home test kit at the head shop (it costs about $8) and find out for yourself how quickly your body gets rid of THC.

    •  This is very good advice.... (0+ / 0-)

      A home test before an "official" test is a good idea if you need to do a pre-offer drug test. Lets you know whether more drastic measures (and expensive and degrading) are needed.

      I wish we could collectively boycott drug tests for jobs that don't involve public safety. The tests seem to be a waste of time, money, and good workers.
