: : It depnds on how often and how much you smoked. Marijuana can last in a UA anywhere from 3 to 30 days. On the evening before the test, drink at least 4-6 8 ozs of water. Continue drinking water when you wake up the next morning. don't overdo it, as there is such a thing as waster intoxicaton, which in extreme cases, can be fatal. Don't give the first urine of the day. That will be more likely to show marijuana in the screen. Be aware that some labs will not take a sample that looks diluted (which your will after drinking all that water). They test for creatine levels. To increase the creatine level and put a little 'color' back into the urine, eat red meat, and take B vitamins (I've forgotten if it's B-6 or B-12, one or the other). There are sites on the Internet that have more information about UAs. Of course, drug testing should be abolished anyway. It is a violation of our rights. When people finally start standing up for our rights, violations like drug testing may end.
: : I am desperate to know, so please help; how long will marijuana (hash resin type) stay in my body??
: : : Also, is there anything I can do to speed up the process of removing it.

: Will not work. I am a Lab Tech and I know this will not work. Only time removes it.
I must agree with the lab tech. There is no specific amount of time . Why? Frequency of use, THC level in drug and individualized speed of metabolism.
THC is stored in fatty tissue and it's metabolite is slowly secreted into the urine. This is why "pot" takes longer to pass a test than other drugs...you can cleanse the urinary tract completely and these cells are going to continue to slowly release more of the metabolite right back into your urine. The dilution will decrease the level to an extent and the a.m. urine is the most concentrated. The process is somewhat like a breathalizer in that amt present will vary depending on the amt. of alcohol and last drink.At a particular percentage, your ass gets taken to jail(been there, done that!)Depending on the test used, one will allow a small percentage(<50ng/dcl) of THC and the another has a zero tolerance.
OK, I know that was probably more than you wanted to know. How do I know so much about this? I lost my privileges to work in medicine because of drug use\abuse.It's your choice, but please consider quiting all drugs. I lost an enormous amt. of money and more importantly A LOT of things that I can never replace.
