While I was on my 10 day leave after boot camp and before combat training, I stupidly decided to smoke marijuana knowing I would receive a urinalysis at the end of it. About 4 or 5 days into leave I shared a bowl of mid-grade cannabis between two friends and myself. At 8.5 days (1.5 days before test!) I was intoxicated from alcohol and took 2 hits from a joint of low grade cannabis. Needless to say I felt like a complete idiot the next day.

From this point on I began drinking more water than usual and I purchased a 40 dollar system-cleansing drink from a vitamin shop. I did not exercise or do much physical activity during this time. I consumed the drink about 7 to 9 hours before the test, and drank a moderate amount of water after this. About 30 minutes before the test I drank a large amount of water. When I took the test my urine was almost clear.

I passed the test and I am grateful for it. I think I was lucky considering the short time between smoking and the test.
