Question
I am a 19 year old female weight:110 height:5"3, I hit a marijuana joint 3 times, how fast will it get out of my system if I never smoke and will it come out in a drug test 5 days from when I smoked?

Answer
Detectable metabolites are stored by/in body fat.  Smoking once probably doesn't expose you to enough of them that it would be an issue five days later but this isn't supported by facts; it's just gut feeling.  Cigarette smoking won't effect it.  

I'd welcome hearing from you if you've been tested.  I apologize for the delayed response.
