You can't: Apart from drinking plenty of water, there's no way to get those drugs out of your system and we'll catch additives. One thing that's regrettable about urine testing is that cannabis stays around much longer than other drugs, and society isn't rational about its use, forcing weekend partiers to choose something much more dangerous to get high. Good luck, and consider becoming drug-free.

For about a week: Naloxone has an active half life of about 2 hours, Metabolite excretion in urine takes much longer. The half life of naloxone metabolites is 24 hours (RxList). Usually by 5-7 half lives (a week), the metabolites are cleared from the system. These are averages from healthy individuals. The actual half life of the metabolites may be longer in a particular person.
Sometimes: Do you mean a routine urinalysis or a drug screen? Although a routine urinalysis seldom shows up anything important in folks without symptoms we still do them a lot. We'd never do a drug test in an annual pe unless you asked--unless your employer is paying for it and asks for a urine to be sent to their lab.
Clonazepam?: Depending on the dose most benzodiazepam derivatives will show up in a urine drug screen.
Weeks: Detection time for marijuana in urine: urine tests detect non-psychoactive marijuana metabolites for days to weeks after use, long after impairment has passed.
