Hello,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

The mean elimination of the cocaine from saliva is around 3-5 days. So you have all the chance that you would be negative. Please see the authentic reference;

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11043648

The mean (N = 6) plasma, saliva, and urine cocaine elimination half-lives were 1.5 +/- 0.1 h, 1.2 +/- 0.2 h, and 4.1 +/- 0.9 h, respectively. For three subjects, the mean cocaine urinary elimination half-life for the terminal phase was 19.0 +/- 4.2 h.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
