  repeated   Cannabis (plant material)


I have been smoking pot hard and heavy for about 7 years now, with the occasional breaks for drug screens for jobs. I moved over 500 miles away for my ' dream job' , a super-easy office position at a MAJOR U.S company. I had been smoking about a half ounce a week up until 3 weeks before the drug screen. The last day I smoked I split 1 joint with 6 people. Then I quit. Totally clean of cannabis for 3 weeks. I loaded up on prescription Lasiks and water, water, water. 1 week before the test, I bought a home kit to test for cannabis, and passed.1 week later I confidently pissed at the drug screen lab. 1 week later, they call me back and tell me I failed!!!!!! So watch out for the home tests, it was obviously innacurate and cost me the best job I could ever hope to get. I'm not swearing off the pot just yet though. I defintely believe in the stuff. I just don't believe in the fascist companies that try to dictate the things I do at home. Im definitely a hard-working, educated woman, not some stoner-slacker doping up at work......
