How Long Does Marijuana Stay in Your Urine?

If you smoke marijuana and find out that you have to take a drug test at work in the near future, you may be at risk for failing this test.

Now, it’s quite possible that you haven’t smoked marijuana for quite a while. If this is the case, then you may have gotten lucky because you should be able to pass this test.

On the other hand, if you smoke marijuana regularly, then the odds of passing the tests are going to be a lot more difficult.

But if you don’t know how long marijuana stays in your urine, you will not know if you are going to be able to take the test yourself or try to come up with other ways to pass it so that you don’t end up losing your job.

With that said, let’s take a look at the ways that marijuana affects your body and how long it can actually stay in your urine stream.

Once you have this established, you’ll be able to determine your next steps so that you can keep your job and somehow, someway pass your urine test so that everything is right in your world once again.

The Length of Time That Marijuana Stays in Your Urine and Shows up on a Drug Test

Again, if your job is going to make you take a drug test, it would help to know how long marijuana is going to stay in your urine.

Here are the most important things that you need to know about this topic:

  • If you only smoke marijuana once and then never smoke again, it will stay in your urine for about 5 to 8 days before it finally leaves your system and clears out of your body.
  • If you smoke marijuana on a fairly regular basis and imbibe cannabis at least 2 to 4 times a week, and then stop taking it altogether, you’ll test positive for this drug after 11 to 18 days. But if you completely remove it from your system after the 18th day, you should be able to pass a drug test the next time you take one as long as it’s after the 18 days have passed.
  • If you smoke marijuana pretty consistent basis, and ingest this drug at least five or six times a week, then it’s going to stay in your system longer and it will show up in your urine for quite some time. In fact, if you are a five or six time a week smoker, you should expect the marijuana to stay in your system for 33 to 48 days. And if you continue to smoke at this pace, the marijuana is never going to leave your system. The only way that it will leave is if you stop smoking altogether.
  • Serious marijuana smokers that smoke consistently every day should expect weed to stay in their urine for 49 to 63 days before it finally clears out after you’ve quit. But it will only clear from your urine if you stop using the drug.
