A friend snorted ONE line of meth Friday night around 9PM and the high lasted until around 5AM. He isn't a chronic user at all, in fact it was only his second time doing meth. He sees his probation officer on the 4th (Thursday) and he's on probation for RANDOM drug screening. His probation officer could choose to test him before then or to not test him. IF his P.O. did choose to test him, it would probably be Tuesday or Wednesday (they give a 24 hour notice to go take your drug screen) My friend has been drinking plenty of water since doing the one line and has been exercising and running around the neighborhood once a day. He's 24, 6'0" tall, weighs 155 and is in good health, pretty sure he has a high metabolism, eats three meals a day, whatever he wants, and seems to not gain much weight at all. IF he gets tested Tuesday or Wednesday what are the realistic chances he passes the test for methamphetamine??
If it is a urine test, your pet donkey will be fine. One off use is out of the urine in 2-3 days. Don't drink too much water on the day of the test, because the result will come back 'dilute' and this can be considered a failed test. My drumsticks had a urine test once, on a Monday, and had smoked meth on the Friday night. She tested clean. (:
Yes it will be a urine test. And you mentioned your drumsticks smoked meth, while my pet donkey snorted meth...would that be a difference or no?? Does it last longer in the body from snorting rather than smoking it??
swim can confirm that during his experience with felony probation, he saw his on monday and had a few wild fridays where he sweated the weekend, but it turned out fine. if thats the true story, then id bet money on a passing test. your body gets rid of that stuff in less time than they want you to think. now pot is what will get you.
frankblank you mentioned something about felony probation, can you or anybody else confirm any differences between misdemeanor and felony probations?? In terms of the drug testing? My little monkey got caught with a marijuana pipe, charged with drug paraphernalia, which is only a misdemeanor and was put on 6 months probation with RANDOM drug screens. My guess would be the drug screens would come more frequently if it were a felony charge, but I could be wrong, and I'm guessing it varies state by state. Anybody have any experiences or knowledge of the differences between misdemeanor and felony drug testing?? If any??
Detection times for most drugs are around 3-4 days (and that's with heavy use). Only highly lipid-bound drugs (such as cannabinoids like THC in marijuana) stick around longer than that.
A single use of methamphetamine is not going to show up 5+ days later, especially on an immunoassay urinalysis.
And route of administration really doesn't affect detection times significantly enough to make any difference. The only one that may is subcutaneous injection which could prolong detection time, especially if an adjuvant is used.
Your question is already answered in the drug testing sticky and if it was unclear you could have asked there.
