Dear egonzo,
Hello.The effect of alcohol and marihuana mix local application in muscle and joint pain is well known.In fact a few patents are pending approval in the US.Though there may be minimal absorption if the marijuana is steeped in the alcohol for 2 weeks,the amount absorbed will be minimal/negligible.There are no detailed reports about this in literature.It should probably not show up on drug tests
