Nothing can be more nerve racking than being confronted with a surprise drug test. It doesn’t matter if its a random drug test from work or unexpected pee test after a job interview.
No honest to goodness pot head want to deal with that crap.
But lets face its, it happens every now and then. If it’s happened to you before, than you know what I’m talking about.
If it has never happened to you before, be ready.
When it does you better be have an A, B and C plan ready to roll.
What to Do When You Have to Take a Drug Test in 30 Minutes
First off, the best way to pass a drug test on short notice is to alway be prepared. For the most part keeping a THC Detox drink on you at all times can be impractical.
Thats why we love CertoClear powder, its small packet of powder you can keep in your wallet.

Plan A : Water and a lot of it!
Even if your not really into drinking water so much, do it. You will be surprised at just how much water you can drink in a pinch.
For most of us, this might not be enough to pass a urine test, but it’s your best shot.
Think of this as a backup to the back up. No matter what you plan on trying, start drinking water immediately to flush out your system.
Urinate as often as possible before giving your sample. Also, keep your fingers crossed.
Plan B: Get the hell out of it!
You are under pressure and its time to think on your feet, whats your angle?
Remember you don’t want to sound like your trying to get out of it. Try to play it cool and come up with an excuse, emergency or more important reason to reschedule the UA.
You need to try and get out of taking a drug test, if you can. Remember you are still drinking as much water as you can, while trying to squirming your way out.
Plan C: Contaminate the Urine Sample
This is your last hope, there is no way out of this random on the spot drug test and you back is to the wall. Its time to go Kamikaze because you no here is no way of passing.
Adding adulterants like bleach, Visine or water to the urine sample will can cause errors.
Depending on the situation, there are 3 possible outcomes:
- Retested will be scheduled
- Pass because they wont bother with a retest
- Fail because they wont bother to retest
Finding out that your about to be screened for THC in the last minute
Look, having less than an hour to try and cleanse out THC, sucks. The metabolites from Marijuana are very hard to get rid of.
THC-COOH traps its self in body fat and stays there. If you don’t have time to burn of that fat cell, your going to have to mask it.
That doesn’t mean you have no way of passing. It’s possible and I have known a few people that have done so.
Your just going to have to think and react quickly. It just means you need to stay prepared.
