I’m not here to judge you, let me say that first. But more and more people are asking the question – how to pass a drug test? With marijuana becoming legal in certain states, having relaxed laws in other states and more socially acceptable, sometimes you’re going to need to know the answer.
The most common reason is workplace testing. It’s common in some of the government, or public services roles. Some other workplaces across the US have the right to test their employees for traces of drugs. There is an argument for this being very unfair, I mean, isn’t it up to the individual what they do in their spare time?
Anyway, there are many different types of testing, including; urine samples, hair follicle testing, blood testing. For each of these tests there are various ways of altering the results. Not every method is guaranteed to work, but if you don’t try, you’ll never know.
I have summarized some of the best and most reliable methods to pass drug tests.
How to Pass a Drug Test for Marijuana
Marijuana is still in your system for around 30 days after you last smoked it. So unless you have a good 30 days to stay clear of the drug before testing, you’re going to need a plan. The most common way you’ll be tested for marijuana is a urine sample.
So the obvious answer here is that you need some urine that is clean, not your own, right? This is a trick that has been used for many years, and is still very effective today. Knowing that you have a urine test coming up, you need to bring a clean sample with you.
There is only so much the person testing you can do. Meaning, they will stand near you when you are giving the sample. If you have no prior history of giving hot samples and don’t raise any suspicion, you will have more leeway.
Basically you need to conceal a small container of the clean urine on your person somewhere, and discreetly produce it instead of a natural sample. I say ‘basically’, but it’s not easy. There are many ways to do it, and people choose what they are able to get away with. So get creative.
Additional Tips to Pass a Urine Test

There are a few chemicals that are believed to contaminate a urine sample. The two most common ingredients that are easy to get hold of are; bleach, and detergent. Both come in a fine powder form, and do not disturb the sample too much that a casual person would notice.
There are several methods to getting the bleach or detergent into the sample bottle. But the easiest and most common method is to store some under your fingernails. If you don’t have long enough fingernails, you’re out of luck. If you do, stuff as much as you can under them.
Then when producing the sample, sprinkle as much as you can into the sample container. Give the container a good shake when you tighten the lid, then all you can do is hope.
