Default Info for Grunts.

This is a information thread.
Anybody that wants to post useful information that they learned by joining the military, should be courteous and post and/or answer questions for people who have questions.

Lol, like Johnny said, Coke isn't in your system for more than a week..

you're clean. If you're still worried, drink about 80 oz of water a day, and when your drug test comes, wait til the end of your stream (like, only let the last bit get in the cup.)

Nah man your clean. If you are REALLY worried about it.... which you shouldn't be because you stopped smoking pot and burning it up about 2 months ago your bodys clean as ****. but like I said if you is really worried about it.. go to walmart and buy one of their drug tests and take it.. but honestly i wouldn't worry about anything. Easy your mind.. Now the thing I gotta worry about is passing my asvab.

My friend's parents drug tested him the same day he smoked some weed, and he waited til the end of the stream and added some water, and it said he hadn't smoked in a week rofl.

While you pee in the cup you'll be monitored & those Medic NCOs know all of the tricks. If there's any doubt to the validity of the test they'll take a hair sample.. The presence of drugs stays in the hair for a long time. It's an expensive test but sometimes it's used.

Don't think you're scot free after the test. I've heard of random tests for those in the Delayed Entry Program & throughout your Army career. I was never tested randomly whereas my friend was tested twice in 9 days. Totally random. You never know when your name will turn up.

Your best bet is just to lay off of all of it. It could really screw up your chances.
