What if I'm a chronic user of marijuana will it be 30 to 45 days to clear my system still?

If I smoked 3 grams of marijuana in one night, how long would it take to leave my system? I was a chronic user up until a month ago.

If I smoked 3 grams of marijuana in one night, how long would it take to leave my system? I was a chronic user up until a month ago.

A long time: The half-life of THC, which is the active ingredient in marijuana is 30 days. In other words, 30 days after you completely stop using marijuana, 1/2 of it is still in your system. 60 days later 1/4 is still in your system. 90 days later 1/8 (12.5%) is still in your system.
