I have a son who has been taking hydrocodone. He says he hasn't had any in 7 days but I a urine test is positive. Could it still be in his system?

In brief: Hydrocodone

The half life of hydrocodone is 4 hours.
That means that the hydrocodone is indeed in his system but it isn't from taking it 7 days ago.
