    I stopped smoking weed for two months a while back to try to find another job. This week I got two calls and an email from a place I applied for a couple months back but I gave up and started smoking again. I'd like to contact them somehow to let them know I got their message but need an excuse to say why I'm not looking right now. Just in case they get another job in a few months. I can try again. I don't want to ignore them, then ill have no chance at all!

    Hmm. That sounds pretty good, do you think it would work if I say I'm unavailable for a few months? It would take me around three months to get clean, found that out the last time I tried.

    The last three jobs I've gotten where I needed to be tested, I had a friend piss in a bottle of Poland spring and stuck it between my legs. Easy as can be. Never stopped smoking for a day.

    I don't have anyone I can ask for clean pee and don't feel sneaky enough to get away with it! It's aggravating, I didn't expect to hear from anyone months after I applied.

    I know lots of people with clean pee but they are coworkers! Can't ask them!

    There is no good excuse. Go for the interview, stop smoking and chances are good it may take a few months when all the interviews are over and when you can actually start. If drug testing is part of the interview prior to being accepted and you are certain you will be found out, then just tell them you are staying put for the time being because you feel compelled to help your division/company that is going through a crisis.

    Next time you do this, can you save the pee?

    This sounds good. Hard to believe that no one has invented a way for the signs to be gone quickly.

    Perhaps 1VegasGirl may be trying to help you read between the lines about the drug use and how it is impacting your life at least in this situation?

    That might be a good idea but after 60 days with 5 hits, I was still positive! Next time ill make sure I'm clean before I apply for anything. I sent them an email with @eirexican suggestions. Told them I would have loved the job and when "things die down," the family matter, I would contact them again. Hope they don't hate me now.

    Come on... All you have to do is eat a salad before your test day, eat nothing in the morning and drink water. Lots of water.... Depending on your body weight, 3/4-1 gallon of water a few hours before the test=clean

    Dear Sirs,


    I am currently too busy getting high. When I sober up, I might be able to work for you 3 or 4 hours per day, but not if it's too sunny. And don't talk too loud in the morning because I get a lot of headaches before 2PM.

    When do you process raises for new hires?

    I just took a test for a job in a hospital. I was talking with the nurse about all the detection systems they have in place. They check your hands for something. I had to wash them in front of her before I peed, and not throw the paper towel out. They test the temperature of the pee right after you give it.

    She said they also test for the OTC things you can get which claim they'll give you clean urine. It seems they're getting pretty smart.

    OP, you don't like your job and want to leave. Just quit rather than go through this every time there's a posting.

    A few months? If you stop smoking weed now in 30 days you can take a piss test and pass every time, likely you could take a piss test after 2 weeks and pass, but that depends on your body and how much you smoked.

    I have read a lot about the dilution method. It would only work if I knew exactly when they would test me. I'm kinda paranoid, gossip flies in this industry and I'd hate to blow it, test positive, and have my bosses here find out.
