FAQ Cannabis Drug Tests

How long does Cannabis stay positive on a drug test ?

This we find is a common question and something that can cause confusion , as the amount of time Cannabis stays in the system can be very variable. A Cannabis urine drug test detects Cannaboids in urine, and as these are stored in fatty tissue thay can be released for a extended period after the exposure to cannabis occurred.

A urine Cannabis drug test can stay positive for up to 30 days after last Cannabis use in certain cases, although in most cannabis users the drug will be out of their system in 6 -10 days, depending on duration of drug use. The amount of time Cannabis stay in the body depends on many factors such as, the amount  taken, its strength, purity, the body weight of the person being tested and rate of metabolism, and whether they are a casual Cannabis user or a long term user.

Government seek good practice approach to underage drinking

Every local authority is being sent a good practice guide to help them tackle underage drinking.

Policies involving police,trading standards, youth and childrens services have been developed.

Additional funding is also being targeted at youth crime action plan areas to fund police enforcement and detection, with many police forces and councils now being funded for the purchase of instant alcohol detection tests, simple dip tests which can be used to detect alcohol disguised in other liquids on the streets. Alcohol dip tests with IVDD saliva capability can also then test a saliva sample to indicate the actual blood alcohol concentration.

Cocaine and Ecstacy still dominate over ‘legal highs’

Mephedrone had been encountered by up to 19% (almost 1/5) of regular users of Cocaine and ecstacy, in a recent study questionare on drug use in the preceeding 6 months.

This level was lower than expected, with the media hype over ‘legal highs’, however the study was in drug users already in contact with a drug worker. It is suggested the group consists of experienced drug users with existing patterns and preferences in drug taking. The conclusion is the mephedrone is not seen as an alternative to illegal drug use by experienced users.
