30 days: If you haven't smoked, or consumed extracted THC in a period of a month, your urinalysis will come back clean. If you are caught in a position where you have to do a urinalysis in less then 30 days, there are suppliments,such as "test clean" that can mask THC in your urine.

Does cannabis interact with cumadin/warfarin? I know that alcohol heightens irn, does marijuana lower it?
Don't know...: We don't know, as far as i can tell it has not been studied.
