    Ok, I've been scouring the internet trying to figure this out and I can't seem to get any real info.

    I realize cocaine only stays in your system for 1-5 days.

    Now the metabolite Benzoylecgonine is what I'm having trouble figuring.


    I am 25 years old and used Cocaine 3 times last year (2009). Each use was less than 0.5 grams. Thursday (22nd) I got 7 grams of decent quality cocaine and I decided explore this substance. I took 3.5 grams over the course of 10 hours on Thursday and used another 3.5 grams today (Friday 23rd) over the course of about 12 hours.

    Before using I checked online and found out cocaine stays in your system for 2-3 days. I have a drugtest in 10 days for a misdameanor probation charge. After researching cocaine urine tests I've found websites that say cocaine can stay in urine for 2 days - 12 weeks. After doing quite a bit of googling, I figured I would post my question here since this community seems much more informed than the yahoo answers page. :)

    Question: In 10 days after using 7 grams of decent cocaine, should I worry about failing the test? I am 6 feet tall and 225 pounds.

    Thanks for reading and any info is appreciated!

    I really don't have a good answer for you but I'll bump the thread anyway.

    My guess, based on other substances such as THC is that you 'should' be ok. THC is another one of those substances where the metabolites will stay in your system for 2 days to 6+ months. But, here's the deal. Drug tests have a lower limit to how much you need in your system to test positive. With THC metabolites its usually fairly high. If you haven't had any in your system for a few months, and smoke a joint, it probably wont even show up a day or 2 later. On the other hand, if you are a habitual user like I used to be - I used to smoke weed 3+ times a day for years. After I had quit for over a month, I took a drug test and failed.

    Moral of the story is that drugs build up in your system over time, and that seems to be what the tests are looking for. Now, from what I understand, 7g is a rather large amount, so I'm certainly not qualified to give a realistic answer to your question.

    Cocaine stays in your system a maximum of 5 days. Usually it is gone within 3 days.
