Just because you are clean doesn't mean that you will
Earlier this year, I was suspended from school for
alcohol (all based on hearsay, nobody saw us, but had
to confess and get suspended for a week, or be
expelled if we wouldn't admit to it) But while
suspended we had to go to our local drug
rehabilitation institution and have assessments and
The only thing I had that may have shown up in the UA
was alcohol. I didn't do any narcotics (in fact, I've
never done any of those nice little illegal drugs)
A few days later when I received the results for my UA
said I had methamphetamines, alcohol, marijuana and
several other random substances which I can't recall.
I'm not on any medication, haven't been for years so
the methamphetamines weren't there, I'd never smoked
marijuana before, and our little alcohol escapade had
happened nearly a week earlier.
For how fast alcohol leaves your system it is 2 hours
per beer. and it's either 2 or 1 beers equals a shot
of hard liquor.
Between four of us we'd gone through a large bottle of
Jim Beam, but either way, the stuff would have left my
system days before.
Eh, just commenting that even though you do take a UA,
the results aren't guaranteed to be accurate.
