Customer Question

Recently I have smoked cannabis for the first time in over a year. I am now expecting a drug test (urine) in the next week or two the last time I smoked it was over 7 days ago. What are the chances of me passing my urine test? I am nervous.

Hello from JustAnswer.

You will definitely pass. Since it has been over a year since your previous use, this is a single use of marijuana from the perspective of how quickly it will leave your system. The usual period of detection for a single use of marijuana is up to 3 days. There can be rare people that are outliers, so a fourth day is rarely possible. But since it has already been 7 days since the use, you would be negative, even if the test were done today, and certainly over the next week or two.

The reports that you hear from friends or on the internet of longer detection periods are for people that are using the drug regularly.

So, you can relax. There is no reason for you to be nervous.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.

Sorry I must correct myself it wasn't a single use it was a few tokes on a spliff and a few hits on a bong in one day. So I have smoked more than once
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 10 months ago.

Still, multiple doses on a single day with no preceding use for over a year would be well out of your system by 7 days.
