Addiction to Drugs/Marijuana on urine exams


Hi. I'm not a Drug user, but I smoked two little weeds and shared it with 2 friends.
I had an employee exams and they used urine to detect any drugs (toxicological exams). These exams were 10 days after I smoked. Is it going to be detected? Is there any "solution"? If I ask to repeat exams..don't know.
Thank u so much.

Hi Johan,
Generally, marijuana stays in the system for 3-5 days if someone smokes one time.  In Chronic marijuana users, the drug can be detected for 30+ days. There are many products that claim to flush your system, don't be fooled. You cant remove the metabolites of any substance from your body.
I hope this is helpful.
