Should I Tell My Doctor If I Use Cocaine
please tell me if i had cocaine 1 week before the drug tests and weed daily until 2 weeks before the tests , what can I do to pass? It is a preemployment test , is that a urin test or can be saliva etc? Many thanks
Stop usage: Although i'm sure i'd be wasting my breath telling you to quit these habits as they are not healthy, self destructive and...Expensive. With that being said...You need to stop using or even inhaling (pot smoke) for at least4 weeks. It is not only blood, urine & saliva test you need to worry about..Many employers are now also demanding hair samples. And the stuff you use, remains for a long time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
