Would 3 hits of marijuana within 4-5 days of a urine drug test

Resolved Question:

Would 3 hits of marijuana within 4-5 days of a urine drug test cause a positive result? I assumed that would be below the tolerable limit for the cutoff threshold. This is for an infrequent to rare user not a daily user.

Hello,

It is difficult to tell you with 100% certainty; however you are likely going to be safe.
Normally, after one time use, marijuana will be cleared from your system within 1 to 3 days.
Three hits should be out of your system by the time you are tested.

Here is a good reference for you if you would like regarding drug testing:
