I have a drug test for a job at a hospital tomorrow morning

This answer was rated:

I have a drug test for a job at a hospital tomorrow morning and I have smoked marijuana in the last 30 days. I am a very light and occasional smoker, maybe one small joint in the evening, but I smoked for a week straight, the last being 9 days ago. I've tested several at home tests and have gotten an extremely faint line indicating a negative result. The tests mention that ANY line is a negative result but I've also red that a white line, also known as a "ghost line" indicates a preliminary positive result. It's honestly hard to tell if the line is a faint pink or white line. I've been drinking large amounts of water off and on for the last week but am not sure if I should go through with the test tomorrow or try to postpone for a few more days. Any suggestions? Is it possible for a light smoker to test clean in ten days? Before smoking for a week straight, I hadn't smoked in maybe three or four months.

Should I switch to question and answer format.?

Customer:

I'm considering the possibility that postponing may raise suspicion. Do you think diluting would help?

Customer:

and you said maximum time, did you mean minimum?

Dr. R. Bora :

Yes, it will help in excretion....you can take as much water as possible before you get the formal test done....

Dr. R. Bora :

Some marijuana are stored in body fat and have a elimination half-life of 10 to 13 days. Most researchers agree that urine tests for marijuana can detect the presence of the drug in the body for up to 13 days.
