21 Day Cleanse
I had gastric bypass 2.5 yrs ago. Im currently doing the standard process 21 day cleanse. Im on day 7. I feel weak & tired. Is this cleanse safe 4 me?

Not necessarily: Thc is stored in fat, and can remain detectable for varying amounts of time depending on frequency of use. The only way to get it out of your system for good, forever, is to stop using marijuana/thc forever. Marijuana anonymous can help. http://www.marijuana-anonymous.org/. ...Read more
