Insider: How long it takes marijuana to leave your system and what to expect from a weed detox.
@TreesPlz - That Insider article...
Detection levels. "...[S]tudies suggest that THC metabolites can be detected for between one to two weeks in users who smoked a single joint."
True.. in a laboratory setting. Scientists once attached a radioactive isotope to a THC molecule and as long as that molecule remained, the isotope remained. When they could no longer trace that isotope, then they knew the molecule was absorbed. That took about 30 days to occur in chronic users.
Your average DOT level urine drug detection test threshold is much higher than this. I know from experience that if a clean person smokes one joint on a Friday evening, they can pass a DOT drug test Monday morning. The key is that you need to be clean (I was clean for a month before hand, bad timing for me on the test ) I am a large guy and have plenty of fat to store THC too.
I reference the DOT level drug test as it is the highest level a person will have to face in normal everyday living. Maybe if you were going to be an astronaut or something they might use a more sensitive test.
As for the other stuff like exercising, or drinking/eating anything to mask the THC from the test... none of that works. There are only 2 ways to beat a DOT drug test. 1. Get your THC levels below the detection threshold of the test you are taking, or, 2. Alter the sample somehow.
If you opt for number 2 and get caught, you are toast. They could then use a more sensitive test on you and for sure that one you can not hide from.
I don't know about hair testing as that wasn't in the mix when I had to deal with the DOT.

Excellent article @MikeyC! The paper is really good. I’ve downloaded it and plan to use it this fall! Thanks!
Great read, @MikeyC !

Keep smoking y’all. We’ll take out this virus!!

I am sure the high and mighty muckity-mucks in Austin will have a say about this, but for now it is a win for my great, but still a little behind-the-times, state.
The ban on smokable hemp has been struck down in Texas by the court.
Yahoo Finance: Marijuana legalization: 'New York is one of the bigger movers,' Bruce Linton explains.
That's one small step for cannabis freedom, one giant leap for the State of Texas.
Excuse me if I sound anything less than happy about this; the attitude our politicians and lawmakers have towards my favorite plant is sometimes frustrating. But, we keep at it, hounding our representatives.
"The bill Fort Worth state Rep. Stephanie Klick submitted back in March called for cannabis oil to be made available only to some sufferers of PTSD, specifically veterans. But many who testified on the bill at the Texas Capitol, including veterans, said eligibility should be extended to anyone dealing with the condition."
"When the bill was introduced, many hoped the THC limit would increase even more, to a maximum of 5%. That would have increased the limit tenfold. Still, some of the Texans who testified that they already self-medicate with illegal marijuana said it was too low."
One of those would be yours truly.
CNN: Young adult cannabis consumers nearly twice as likely to suffer from a heart attack, research shows.
That's fake news man^.
From the study:
The study found cannabis users were also more likely to be male, smoke cigarettes, use e-cigarettes and be heavy alcohol drinkers, which may also contribute to their risk of heart attack.
But researchers said their analysis adjusted for those risk factors
It's like saying planes are dangerous because you can get in a car accident on the way to the airport
The Washington Post: Marijuana use rises for college students, who are drinking less.
CNN: Uncontrollable vomiting due to marijuana use on rise, study finds.
How the hell do they come up with this shit?
I'm guessing that the usual suspects offer funding for anything remotely anti-cannabis, with bonuses for extremely stupid and misleading research. $cience at work. The $cience is settled. There is no way that $cience can be corrupted. If someone says $cience, you know it's true and you're an idiot conspiracy theorist if you don't believe everything written by state run media which is bought and paid for by lobbyists which stand to make trillions of dollars for their industries.
I'm guessing the doctors from that study are prescribing pills to treat it.
Logic is dead.
When you read some of these "news" articles and see the clear propaganda in them it's really frustrating.
News has NO EMOTIONS. Propaganda however...
They ask a pediatric doctor about adolescents being admitted to the ER about vomiting then jump to 800,000 reporting nausea in Colorado must be linked to Cannabis legalization.
"To do research, scientists look at medical records for reported cases of repetitive vomiting and compare those to marijuana usage in an area. Wang and his colleagues did just that in Colorado, where recreational marijuana was legalized in 2014. The use of medical marijuana had been legal since 2009."
The 800,000 in Colorado had nausea and not uncon troll able vomiting.
This article is propaganda. It turns nausea into 800,000 people uncontrollably vomiting and not being able to hold down food.
