How to Get Away with Stuff #3 – Passing a Drug Test

Back by popular demand, I present the third installment of ewwty’s How to Get Away with Stuff series. This entry is all about how to pass a urine drug test.

This is long overdue. In the first two installments, my readers gained the know-how to avoid getting caught smoking marijuana at home and college with success. Though it was in my most honest intentions to write a number of follow-ups to those two, I instead opted to get high and write about something else. And then I just decided to get high. And then, well… Needless to say, I never did.

Nevertheless, I realize now how plainly irresponsible it was of me to be sending the little Google-searching hoodlums of the world off into the ravages of society with only half the formula, so to speak. The weed smoker’s trouble doesn’t end with merely getting away with the act of smoking weed. Society has another ace up its sleeve when it comes to dicking over cannabis users. Ya’ll know the beast to which I refer: the abominable urine drug test.

Notwithstanding the facts that forced you into the all-too-common predicament of passing a drug test, and regardless of the illegal substances you’ve consumed throughout the adventure of life, there is always a way for anyone to beat a drug test. Having said that, the options available to drug users faced with the indignity of drug testing are numerous and varying.

Furthermore, the ideal option for any given individual depends on a litany of factors, ranging from how much prior notice you’re granted, to your Body Mass Index (BMI). Below, I will lay these options out, and provide the information necessary for you to determine which course of action is best given the circumstances surrounding your drug test.

Assuming most who read this article are indeed facing an impending drug test, please try and tolerate my stupid attempts at being funny. I promise you, I’m aware that you’ve come across this article because you needed help, and therefore take very seriously the advice I give. Despite my self-indulgent writing style, I won’t stray from anything other than pure factual information on drug testing.

Moreover, I abhor the act of drug testing – as well as the frequency and manner with which it’s carried out in society – on a moral level. Given the douche-bag Republicans in Congress, and their crusade against everything decent, the practice is becoming more deplorable, with a number of US states effectively mandating that grown-ass adults be drug tested by making the reception of welfare contingent upon a urine sample. Bottom line, I feel very strong that drug testing is plain wrong in the vast majority of situations, and have a sincere desire to help those affected by drug tests to beat them.

Every method I lay out below is guaranteed to yield a passing drug test result – it’s a matter of science. However, they are not fool-proof. Don’t be a fool. Don’t take shortcuts. These methods will work if followed correctly. All you have to do is correctly follow them. This is where you should stop skimming.

  1. Quit smoking 16 days ago. smoked maybe once a week before that for a month. Piss test in 2 days. Very active lifestyle. Took a First Check take home drug test that came back negative but sample may have been diluted a little with water because i have been drinking a lot of water. You think I will be fine

    1. Yeah bro you’ll be good. What makes me so sure is your active lifestyle. You didn’t give me any height or weight to work with, but the fact that you’re active, and that it’s been 16 days since you smoked, coupled with the fact you only smoked about once a week before quitting, indicates to me you have nothing to worry about. Relax! :)

  2. For anyone having a problem with the taste of the sure-jell water mix I dealt with the same thing leading up to my drug tests. If you put lemon juice into your mix you can actually get it to taste kind of like a thick lemonade… sounds gross but I actually thought it tasted good, that’s what worked for me anyway.

  3. JAMES – Great article, nice tone, and very helpful.. I guess I’m responding to this because I’m a thinker and I just need some reassurance from someone who’s been there. I understand about metabolism and bmi numbers and all that, I’m 6’2, 180, 12% body fat, work out daily, very sweaty (gross I know), so I’m not worried about that aspect.. Just the fact that I have smoked daily for just over 7 years, average 4 blunts a day. Loved to think of myself as a “high roller” but I’m afraid those days have to fall behind me… I of course have ceased smoking (yesterday), and will increase my cardio, as well as add layers during my workout to increase sweat. I’m just worried because I just found out yesterday and have only a couple weeks to prepare. Note this will be my first drug test ever and I know it will be at a urgent care/clinic. If you (or anyone) have any other suggestions, please let me know!!!

    Thanks again for looking out for us stoners who still can produce in society!

    1. I assume by ‘a couple weeks’ you mean 14 days. That’s cutting it a little close to be honest, but I do think you’ll be all right. Just so you know, in your case the absolute best thing you can do is get your cardio in. As much as you can handle. Be sure to stay hydrated these next two weeks, and follow the sure-gel method. I doubt the sure-gel method will be necessary to be honest, but since you are cutting it a little close, I would definitely suggest you do that.

      Thanks for the kind words! Good luck!

  4. Hey James,

    Awesome article. It came to light I would have to take a piss test (my first ever) within 5 days for a new job. Fortunately enough, I was honest with the company (kinda) and said I indulged while on vacation a month ago. They’ve given me a period of up to 2 weeks to take the test at a local clinic. I’m a heavy, heavy smoker (weed, wax/oil, hash, the works) and it’s bugging me the fuck out. How much cardio should I put per day (will be buying gallons of distilled water to pair with) and how many days do you think it’ll take me to be clean. I have a friend who has a corporate job and whenever he gets tested he hits the gym and drinks lots of water and also shots of vinegar throughout the day…don’t really know about that but he passes every time. I have the money for a Whizzinator, but don’t wanna drop 100+ If I can get by naturally.

    Thanks a lot, man! Great fucking post.

I have been drinking large amounts of water daily and now switched to water mixed with sure jel. Fucking pounding it. Tastes awful but whatever. I am roughly 200 pounds with a tight build not much fat6 feet tall. I took a at home drug test this morning and the line was there but very faint. Should I be drinking the sure gel this early? I’m fuckin stressing. This is for mariquana

  6. Hi James,

    Thank you for the article. Very well-written!

    I’ve been a heavy smoker during my college years, typically smoking a bowl sometimes more every day. I quit for a about a week, then took a couple hits 32 days ago. I have a test tomorrow at 1pm and am debating whether I need to dilute/substitute. I know one person that went to the same clinic I’m going to and she used synthetic urine and passed.

    Since I’ve quit, I’ve worked out pretty consistently 5 days a week (cardio/bodyweight training – T25) but slacked off for a few days at the end of January and then over this past weekend because I was sick.

    I got a negative diluted test result last Friday after buying a stupid Vale detox drink from my local porn shop (I won’t make that mistake again).

    What do you think is my best course of action? Sure-jell and a B-vitamin complex? Should I be taking a creatine supplement? I don’t know what flagged my sample as being diluted since it was a neon yellow color so it may have been creatinine levels.

    Thanks,
    Locke

  7. Hello James. I liked the article a lot, made me laugh some even.
    I would like your honest opinion and/or advice. As you may have guessed, I have an upcoming drug test, or at least I’m assuming I will have one, although I don’t know when since it hasn’t been brought up. It’s for a really good job and I’m preparing for a urine test anyway.

    So, my smoking habits: What I’ve been doing for a long time is smoking on and off. I’ll smoke everyday for 1-2 weeks, then usually stop for 2-4 weeks. I’m 6’3 230 lbs. I smoked quite a bit on new years, and yesterday I got a little drunk and took a very very small rip of the stuff. Besides these two events, I haven’t smoked regularly, or at all, since probably Christmas. I’m guessing I might have to take the test as early as next Friday (the 24th) but I’m not sure exactly when, I may be able to buy some time. I have been hitting the gym every other day for the last couple weeks, sweating a lot. I plan to go everyday, possibly twice, to sweat as much as possible until the test now however. The last drug test I took, I was in just about the same situation, but this is for a way better job so I’m that much more nervous about it. The last time, I drank a ton of water before the test, and drank a lot of Monster Energy right before to make my urine yellow-ish, and didn’t get a false positive either. Do you think I’m in the clear if I drink the right things and keep exercising like crazy? Anything else I can do? Thanks.

    1. Seems to me you’re doing everything right. Judging from how much you’ve claimed you’ve been smoking lately, you’ll be fine. While I think you’re good regardless, focusing on aerobic exercises in the gym during the week leading up to the test (over weight-lifting type exercises) would help. But like I said, as long as you don’t smoke any more weed between now and the test, you’ll be fine.

  8. Here is a description of my experience with this method.

    I am 60 years old, female, 25 pounds too heavy, who smoked a teeny bit every day (abt 1 gm/week). I abstained for almost 5 complete days. This morning I failed an over-the-counter test. I followed your Pectin Procedure, and I passed my test at 4 p.m. this afternoon!!!!

    I will caution interested people that they need to use Sure Jell (or Certo) and not Jell-O. Jell-O is made from gelatin, not Pectin. If you read the nutrition label for Jell-O, it states that there is not a significant amount of any type of fiber.

    I might also add that Sure-Jell has a greater amount of pectin than does Certo. Of course, NSA, I will never need to do this again, because I experimented only once and have learned the error of my ways.

    Thank you EWWTY for your help.

  9. Gelatin and fruit pectin are not the same thing at all. Gelatin is an animal based product and is used in jello, on the other hand fruit pectin is a soluble fiber and is used to make jam. Pretty much any soluble fiber would act like pectin, such as metamusle. If you doubt this simply look up the two words, pectin and gelatin. The point is jello and gelatin are nothing like fruit pectin and will not help.

  10. I have used the suregel method once before and it worked… however that was 12 years ago. One thing I have heard, is that if you get the sugar free suregel that it won’t work. Do you know if there is any validity to that ? I had an interview today, and will probably be offered the job (which happens to be an opportunity of a lifetime at a large University) I am expecting them to want to piss test me. From the hours of research I’ve done, the only thing that worries me about the suregel method is the clear color to the urine. Due to having a vitamin B deficency, I already have to take it daily. Is there anything else in the vitamin world I can take to increase the yellow color ? Also, is it helpful to eat a lot of red meats a few days prior so the creatine levels aren’t too low to cause suspicion or is it a waste of time due to the amount of water I will be drinking with the suregel ?

  11. Hey James, I want to start off by saying that I really enjoyed your post, tons of useful information. In terms of the at home stick tests, I was just wondering if diluting the piss with a little water for a weekly smoker (maybe two or three times a week if i’m feelin’ it) is really a guarantee? It just seems like such a simple solution for what I may have misinterpreted to be such a big roadblock in my cannabis consumption. Thanks in advance.

  12. My boyfriend passed a urine test this morning without prior warning as part of a pre employment screening. I filled up a clean empty travel size shampoo bottle (screw top so leak proof and no noise) with my urine & used one hand warmer to keep it warm. He placed the warmer in his boxers and the bottle under his scrotum and it stayed in place. I was worried that they may test hormones & know that the urine came from a female. It was a simple on site strip in the cup & temperature test that was not witnessed. He said it had been 45 mins since I gave him the urine until he did test & the temp was perfect. He poured it in the cup & also urinated in toilet. He put the bottle back so no one would notice it in his pocket. No one suspected a thing & he got the job! The test was for thc, alcohol, cocaine, & meth.

  13. James, let me start of like most and applaud you for your efforts in helping many, many ppl thru the hassle of urinalysis. Your article was well written, humorous, and most certainly helpful. I found it like most do, in a panic, and desperately in search of answers and hope. And it gave me plenty of both. So THANK YOU!

    Having said that, I would also like to mention that I have read a majority of the comments, and it puzzles me how ppl continue to ask the same question, rather than maybe READING a little and coming to a general conclusion as to their own situation. But ya know.. it is what it is, so to speak.

    In any case, I would like to add my personal knowledge based on experience, and the information you so graciously covered in your article, in hopes that it may serve to help others, and potentially answer some questions I have seen ppl ask.

    I attend a methodone maintenance program in the USA. Marijuana use is still illegal in my state however.
    I have had CLEAN urine at my clinic(as far as they know) for the last several years, making it possible for me to be eligible for “take home doses”, which certainly make attending the clinic much, much easier. I visit the clinic twice per month, and must leave a urine drug screen once a month. I also love marijuana, and do smoke whenever possible. I had been abstaining from smoking for several years until Dec2012, and have been using off and on since.

    Based on my desires and my restrictions, I have come up with a process that I have proven, month after month since Dec 2012(now Sept 2013). This has not failed me ONCE yet!

    Let me also mention, that I am 37, 6ft, and over 300lbs.
    I have knee and hip problems that prevent me from exercising as I would like, so I am very sedentary. Even still, I have not failed a single test yet using a combination of your’s and my own methods.

    Basically, I employ your method exactly as listed, 4 hours prior to testing. I mix one bag of powdered Sure Gel Fruit Pectin with one 32oz Gatorade and drink, 1 to 2 liters of water and drink, another sure gel and 32oz gatorade and drink, and finally, another liter or more of water. An hour later I leave my sample. It’s equally important to mention I am urinating frequently during the hours I am ingesting all of this liquid. During this time, I am testing my samples at home. I purchase THC dipstick tests on ebay. They can be had for around 1 to 2 dollars a piece. I usually purchase 10-15 a month. Its inexpensive peace of mind.
    I also bring one of these with me to the clinic so I can actually TEST the sample I leave, so I KNOW for sure if I passed. There is NO better peace of mind! The urine is NOT supervised so this has not been a problem.

    Let me also mention that my smoking cycle is basically as such. After leaving my sample each month, I allow myself to smoke for a period of 1 week. Although I have gone as far as two weeks. And that is DAILY smoking, typically about a half gram per day, mostly at night.
    My best, safest results, come from only smoking for ONE week, and then abstaining for THREE weeks.
    Then using the method outlined above. Its also worth noting that drinking that much liquid in such a small period of time WILL make your urine CLEAR. To combat this I take (2) 50mg vitamin B2(Riboflavin) 1 hour prior to testing. The Riboflavin will make your urine bright neon yellow. Almost suspect neon, but MUCH less suspect than clear urine, lol.

    The hardest part of this entire process, is drinking so much so fast, and holding in my urine on the 25+ minute car ride, LOL. The sure gel doesn’t taste to good either, but the gatorade helps to make it much more bearable.

    Having said all that, between the B2, the inexpensive THC home tests, the method outlined in your article, and a little common sense, I have been passing with flying colors for months! Even with my size and health issues I am able to smoke 1 week out of every month, and pass with flying colors each time.
    The best part, is the counselor at the clinic KNOWS I do this, and does not care so long as I pass. If I were to fail, I would lose my ability to take my meds out every two weeks. Not the end of the world, but still.

    THIS WORKS! If you just READ, stick to the script, and use a little brain power. If it can work for me, it most certainly should be able to work for the average person, yet still, it goes with out saying for anyone reading this, YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY!

    Thanks again for the excellent article, and the peace of mind it has allowed me. And best yet, I can SMOKE again!!!

  15. So what is your take on this:
    The last time I smoked was 16 days ago. Just a few one hitters. I haven’t smoked since. I haven’t exactly been out running lately as the weather has been crappy, but I have drank a good bit of beer over the course of the two weeks. I also got sick and literally sweated out five pounds of water weight over a course of two days. I took a drug test yesterday. I’m a female who is 5’6 and 135 pounds. Do you think I’ll pass?

    1. I can’t really say with certainty, the only detail I need that you left out was how heavy a smoker were you 17, 18, 19, 20 (and so on) days ago. If you got high on a few one hitters a weekend or two a month, or even every weekend, for the last 12 months or more you’ll definitely be fine. However, if it was a daily habit for the last 12 months, or even 2+ months really, I would do everything I could to increase my chances of passing.

      Given that you didn’t mention anything about your marijuana smoking escapades from before 16 days ago, I assume there wasn’t much if any, so if that’s the case you don’t have anything to worry about.

    1. Definitely. But it may be cutting it a little close, but honestly I doubt it. I think with your weight and activity level two factors come into play regarding why I think it’ll be out of your system so fast. That your metabolism is faster than most people’s doesn’t simply mean your body burns fat faster than usual, as metabolism is the process of burning and replacing fat cells. Given that you have a healthy, functioning body, and (partly as a result of that) also have low body fat, your body is very used to going through many metabolic cycles within the course of 30 days.

    1. Not likely. I suppose if you did some research to find out which fruits contain the highest percentage of pectin, and figured out how much of that fruit would be needed to equal a pack of sure jell, you could attempt it. However if you did do that research, you’d probably find it would require the consumption of way more of that fruit than would be possible to consume in one four hour period. I’d stick with the sure jell, but it certainly wouldn’t hurt to eat some fruit with it as well.

  18. A little comment about a ladys whizinator. Girls, use a small bottle with drug free urine in it that will slide up in your vagigi. Wear tight pants so it stays put if u need to. Heat it up to body temp before u insert and ur good togo. Just pull it out when u need and put it back when ur done. Maybe use a little lube. Works great if they arent watching. Add string tied around the top like a tampon string if ur worried about loosing it up inside. I would say two ounces would be enough to do the job.

  20. Hi James!
    Thanks so much for this information. I found your website once, forgot to bookmark it…then lucked out and found it again. Of course I’m waiting for the impending test…last time I smoked was last Wednesday. The kicker here is I have NO idea when it will be. I’ve stopped for now, have purchased a bike and am doing all things you’ve suggested. I’m doing a trial run today, purchased the sure gel and just drank the first mixture and will be using a Walgreen’s at home test in a few hours.

    Question: does it have to be unflavored?? That stuff is really gross and stinks…triggering the gag reflex. I know, I know – no pain, no gain…just curious.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to help many of us get around this incredibly unnecessary test!

    1. In theory I suppose the flavorless gelatin, not being comprised of any sugar, might be slightly more effective. But even that’s just conjecture, I’d be very surprised if you failed your drug test as a result of using flavored gelatin as opposed to flavorless sure jell.

    1. This is a particularly sticky situation. All I can suggest is you stop smoking right now and get as much aerobic exercise as possible before the test. If you’re still taking the methadone, I doubt the sure jell would be able to mask all the toxins from it, just as I doubt it would mask cannabis toxins in someone who smoked the week leading up to their test.

      I can probably more accurately predict the outcome if you let me know when the last time you smoked pot was, and how often you toked up before you stopped.

  26. Don’t let your upcoming drug test scare you. Take the time to prepare yourself so that you can get the results that you want. By consuming enough water, you will be able to make a difference in the results of your drug test. As the water continues to flush out your system, you will be less likely to have a positive drug test.

The last time I smoked weed was friday november 30. So its only been 6 days. I hadnt smoked many times recently before friday. Im 5 feet and 8 inches and 140 lbs. My metabolism is very fast and im on the swim team so i swim about an hour and a half each morning before school. I also had a friend give me some clean piss this afternoon. But i was wondering if i could i pass this test if i used my own piss? Would it be safe to use my friends pee or can the test detect that its not fresh. It is only a home test though.

  29. Thanks for this article, very insightful. Just had a few questions:
    I recently had to take a screen for a job, and I’ve been abstaining for over a month. However, I took a home test, and I was still coming up dirty. I decided to go with the dilution/masking method, but I was unable to find Sure Jell. Fortunately, I found something called Fruit Jell, that seems to be almost the same thing, except for two things:

    First, it is no sugar needed, and I was unsure if that made a difference.

    Second, Here are the ingredients:
    Fruit Jell (No Sugar Needed) Ingredients: Dextrose, Pectin, Locust Bean Gum, Xanthan Gum
    Sure Jell (No Sugar Needed) Ingredients: Dextrose, Pectin, Fumaric Acid, Sodium Citrate

    Do any of the other ingredients do anything to help the process, or is it just the Pectin I should be concerned about?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

  30. Hi there, i’ve just read your article and found it very educational, and i’m very greteful you shared this information with us all.
    I live in the UK and am a recovering heroin addict. I lost my driving licence around 18 months ago after using some heroin that had been cut with xanax. It really whacked me so much i didn’t know what i was doing and i got in my car and crashed it about half a mile up the road.I am just about to reapply for my licence and i’m going to have to pass a medical to get it back. However, i attend a drug dependancy unit which prescribe me a substitute called subutex. The driving licence agency are going to want to see my file from the DDU. I have a urine test coming in two days and i have very regrettably had a relapse after a row with my ex over child access last week. I don’t think i have time to flush my system out enough with water as i used again today. The tests they use are pretty sensitive from past experience. I was considering making a fake sample with a tea bag and some water and sprinkling a bit of subutex in it, as they will expect to find that. My main worry is that i’m not sure if the tests actually test if it is urine, or do they just test the temp to see if it is fresh? Also i was wondering about the gelatine trick. i can’t get the same products over here, so i was wondering if you could tell me what sort of volumes are in the packets you described? Also your thoughts on whether this will work with herion and your toughts on making a fake sample. I don’t have anyone i can ask for a clean sample, otherwise i@d just use that and dissolve some subutex in that.
    Anyway, i really hope you can help me, i am stressed to the max and would be eternally gratefull for a quick response, if you have the time.

    Many thanks, James

  32. Thanks for such a great insight filled article. I am currently talking to someone because I was called out by my family for smoking weed both my husband and I. My husband who is 31 who has been an avid smoker for years(1 or 2 a day) does general labor work and has a great metabolism since he rides his bike to work and where ever else needed. I am 54 and about 150lbs. Although I dont work out regularly I have been since we both quit smoking)And I am chasing my busy body family around.:) The last we smoked two days ago.I as well smoking about every day wether a hit or sharing a few bowls. The people who will be administering the test know that if I were tested it would be negative, Understanding that I wasnot tested. Dont know how much time I will be given.it will more than likely be a suprise. ANYWAYS my question is…., granted, I dont smoke anymore(I wont be)and continue to eat a low fat diet and dilute and burn fat do you think by the time they give me the test. I am assumming two weeks or more me and my husband will pass. Obviously stressing out like everyone else. I dont know if the Gelitin would be a good idea since I dont know when the test would be. I assume you are busy but if you could write back to ease my mind I would be greatfull. Thank you.

  33. Hi James! Thank you so much for posting this – it was extremely reader-friendly and way more informative than other blogs I’ve looked at. With that being said, I was hoping that I may also be able to present my individualized situation with hopes of your feedback….I’m 5’7” and weight about 125 lbs. I haven’t smoked in about 2 and a half weeks and will not have to take my drug test for another week and a half. I exercise on a daily basis and all that…but I was smoking about 2 or 3 spliffs a day before 2 and a half weeks ago. With that being said, should I start this jello-method now? Consuming jello daily over the next week and a half? Or is only necessary to do it the day before/the day of the test? Thanks again for your help, it was really well-written.

    Like this

    1. I mean if you’re going through all the trouble to obtain clean urine, why would you use it to dilute your own as opposed to just using 100% of the clean stuff? Having said that, I couldn’t imagine anyone smoking so much weed that they’d fail a drug test after diluting their urine to such an extent. Having said that, I’m unaware of the capabilities of typical modern professional drug tests with respect to their fraud detecting abilities. I doubt they’re capable of analyzing the genetic makeup of the urine, which would be necessary to detect that a urine sample contains urine from more than one individual. Still, I would recommend just submitting a 100% clean sample.

      How do you plan on getting the urine into the clinic bathroom?

      1. I just took a 9 panel urine test (pre-employment) at Labcorp, and I have an Rx for Xanax and take it daily. I’ve taken drug tests at this Labcorp for the same reason three separate times and they have never once questioned my Xanax, and I’ve never had to tell them what prescriptions I was taking. I passed my most recent drug test using this sure gel method (for THC), after being clean for 2 weeks, and the last two before that I passed naturally because I hadn’t been smoking, but I was still on Xanax and no one ever said a word. Your results may vary depending on what they are testing for, but if it’s just Xanax then it should be okay. Good luck!

        1. Xanax will show up. If they are not looking for it specifically then they dont care. Most drugs tests are looking for one thing and one thing only and thats marijuana. Of course, that just depends on the employer that ordered it or if it were for probation. The fact that you have a Rx for it means you’re safe regardless.

          To the person who has the UA in 20 some odd days, if you have been taking xanax for a while and are addicted to them, even the slightest, be very careful quiiting them. If you depend on them and quit you could have seizures. Try and reduce the strength a little every day. Quit them all together about 8 days away from the UA and you’ll pass no problem

But the employer called me a few hours later saying my UA is going through a second screening. Does that mean its positive? I couldn’t piss right before test, so they gave me a bunch of water to drink so I can pee. I also got drunk last night. Could that have affected test? I get my results on Tuesday Nov 6th.

    1. The alcohol might have screwed it up. Maybe the level was high and they were confused. I do know that how fast you get clean depends on body fat, type of bud smoked (high quality has more thc and stays in the users system longer) and metabolism. If you arent very fat and work out and have a high metabolism then you should be clean after 6 weeks.

      I am 6’3 and weigh 280lbs and smoke nothing but medical grade bud and it took me almost 8 weeks to test clean. I also didnt work out at all during that time tho.

      But, i also know a guy that was 6’1 and 160lbs. he ran 10 miles a day and smoked medical grade bud for 3 years straight and he still tested dirty 6 weeks after quitting.

      The tests are getting better and very hard to trick unless using synthetic or a clean sample. The labs are catching on to how they get beat and just like the steroid tests they are changing to catch more people.

      Best of luck to you!

    1. As long as you know the piss you’ve stored away is indeed clean, I would just find a place in your bathroom to hide it. Then when your parents give you the test (I assume they won’t accompany you in the bathroom), simply pour it into whatever container they give you to piss in.

      As for whether you’d be clean in a week, that would depend on how much and how often you’ve been smoking. However judging by your height, weight and activity level, you’d likely be clean in a week. I can’t say with certainty though.

    2. As a nurse i might can help here. two things…

      1: how have you stored the urine? If you kept it cold or added a preservative than you are good. Most urine will get cloudy and clumpy if left in the heat/room temp for that long. if it looks fresh then it should pass. Just make sure you warm it up since most home kits have a temp range on the bottle to make sure its fresh. Like i said in an earlier post, hand warmers should do the trick here.

      2: if they are sending it to a lab i am certain the lab will know it is an old sample. The rate that bacteria grow in urine would give it away. Or they might just think you have a urinary tract infection. A severe one at that.

      My advice would be just to go to a head shop and buy synthetic urine for 20-30 bucks. Synthetic will pass a home test no problems as long as its heated. If sent to a lab its more of a 50/50 deal depending on how in depth the lab tests. If you aren’t old enough to get in to a head shop i am sure you have a friend thats 18+ or 21 depending on what state you live in. If you buy a synthetic online your best bet would be “quick fix plus” that is if you have the money to spend.

      That being said, i doubt your parents will send it to a lab since that costs more money. They will probably put their faith in the regular home test kits at walgreens or cvs. So, as long as your old urine looks good i would go with that. Easy way to tell is to void a new sample and compare the two to make sure. But if you have doubts, just go the synthetic way. Better safe than sorry!

      Best of luck to you!

  47. Hello, James! I am so happy i found your article in time. I have a urine test coming up on october 30th, it will be 17 days after my last hit (last time i smoked was october 13th – one week ago), and i smoked also one week before that. That’s a total of two times this month only. In september and august, however, i smoked a lot more. Few times a week, but never every-day-thing. This drug test is very important because i would be kicked out of school if it comes out positive. And my parents don’t need this disappointment. I am also a girl. Which it makes me look even worse in their eyes. (for some reason, people expect more from girls, i guess). As much as i LOVE pot, i will have to put it off until vacation, cause college is more important at this point.
    Anyway, just like you in high school, i just completely forgot about this test coming up. I am so freaked out, i would use someone else’s urine, which i consider to be an extremely risky thing (i sweat just thinking about it). Do you think i should be ok with the gelatin thing/without it? I started drinking a lot of water today. I have about 10 more days to go, and i regularly walk an hour a day 3 times a week. I need to know if you think i should be fine.. Thanks a million! —sammy.

  50. G’day James, just read your artical & found it very informative. Having already failed two workplace urine tests in six months I’m on last notice.

    The first failed test my employer allowed me the time I needed to get clean & allowed me to return to work once I could produce a clean sample (this took 8 weeks of detox). The second test yielded a FALSE positive for which they had to give me the benefit of the doubt because they did not follow company policy by not sending the positive test to the lab, which would have proved the test was faulty.

    So after the second fail (the false one) I felt Im dammed if I do & dammed if I dont so crept back into my old ways of being a daily smoker.

    I have been notified of an impending drug test & have been clean for four days but dont expect this is long enough.

    I will try this gelatine method, after all what have I got to lose other than my job. I will let you know how I go.

    Thanks for the info, and just a warning for your readers that sometimes the drug test itself can GET IT WRONG!

    I’ve been smoking hash daily for 4+ years, easily a gram a day for the last half of that time. I’m eying a new job which I know performs urine tests. The catch is that it’s a small town factory with a small amount of workers, and my father works there. The employees always find out when someone fails the medical and my dad would consider it a huge hit to his reputation if I didn’t pass, so obviously I’d like to avoid any conflicts this would cause within my family. I’m 5’11 and weigh 140 with a quick metabolism – in the meantime I work a tough construction job and play recreational hockey at least once a week when whether permits.

    From what I gather in this post, it sounds like if I quit today, I’d pass for sure if I applied a month from now. However, every other article I read seems to say that very heavy users can have detectable traces of toxins for up to two or three months! So my question is, how long should I wait before I can be absolutely, positively, 110% sure that I can pass the test naturally? If I can’t be fully sure that a month is enough, I’ll definitely be considering your solutions.

    Thanks in advance, much appreciated!

    Just read the article which I thought was great, and probably the most thorough of any I’ve found on the web. I’m applying for jobs that I know will drug test, although I now believe my test may be sooner than I originally expected. I imagine it’ll be at least 14 days before I get tested though. A little about me, I’ve been a heavy smoker for many years, for safety sake say an eighth a day, although I’ve smoked much less over the past week. I’m very fit and work out all the time, and my body fat percentage is around 6. I’m on a very healthy diet and have a fast metabolism as well. Basically what I’m wondering is what do you think my chances are for someone with the background to test clean in 14 days? Also, I think the Gelatin idea is great, and I’ll certainly take every precaution I can in the last few days before I test, but what should I be doing over the next week or so to prepare? Should I be starting on flushing my system and eating gelatin now or does that not speed up the process and just keep working out until the day gets closer? Thanks!

      Okay, as for your husband, the fact that he smoked heavily before the two weeks of cessation leads me to believe he should definitely do the sure jell trick again. In all likelihood it isn’t necessary, and he’s probably clean as I’m writing this, but I’d go with the sure jell method just incase.

    2. You SHOULD start flushing your system right now. But the sure jell won’t do anything to help that process – it only helps to mask that which didn’t get flushed.

      Exercise is the best thing you can do during this time. Exercise and a super healthy diet. There are legitimate detox products you can buy, usually at health food stores, which MAY speed up this process. But like I said in the article, THC is stored in your fat, so anything which helps to burn fat will speed up the detox process.

Last time I had to see how to use sure-gel was 3 years ago for my then-boyfriend/now-husband and need to use it again! Things never change! But I love him pothead & all & has slowly been turning me into one as well. Anyways.. To anyone who reads this, the websites on google say sure gel doesn’t work BUT it does! My husband is a regular smoker (a heavier smoker on the weekends than weekdays) but always consuming THC. 3 years ago my cousin and him smoked like 2 days before a piss test & passed using this sure gel method: drink a packet of sure gel in a water bottle, shake it & chug it. Then wait an hr and eat a big fat juicy burger (to help w/ coloring I guess) then pee once before going then hold your pee till the test and the 2nd pee should be the good one. My question to you, Writer of this post is wouldn’t drinking that much water make the pee too clear? What can you do to yellow it? Another thing, my husband found out he was taking a piss test and quit smoking weeks Ago. He’s 6’4, 160-180 lbs (he fluctuates frequently but he’s pretty much ALWAYS thin. He’s been drinking beer, h20, cranberry like crazy for those 2 weeks. Would he be ok to just take the test w/out masking? Oh & he also smoked regularly before quitting. A response would be greatly appreciated! :)))

I guess you can say i was pretty much pissing my pants waiting for the results but i passed! Anyway my mom found my stash recently and plans on testing me within the next couple of weeks. i heard wiping the inside of the toilet bowl with the wand will help, and i also heard that diluting with bleach will also work. Have you also heard of these ways? Also my metabolism is usain bolt fast and ive cut my smoking down to only a couple one-hitters or grav bong a day before sleep. Thank you for all the help!!

    1. Bleach will only dilute the urine to the same extend water will. Nothing about the chemical properties of bleach would trick a drug test into coming up negative when it should be positive.

      If your mom already found your stash I don’t really see what the point in trying to trick a drug test she gives you. At this point I’d say you’re just going to have to sit down with her and tell her, “Look, I smoke marijuana. If you don’t want me doing it in your house I won’t, but it’s an aspect of my lifestyle that won’t go away just because you wish it would.”

      At least that’s something similar to the talk I had with my Mom about it. You don’t really have to stop smoking at home, you just have to be smarter about it. Read my first “How to Get Away with Stuff” article for information on that.

        I read your article and was greatly humored by it. I thank you for the info included however I found it too late. I was just tested at work for our yearly drug screening. The last time I smoked was Jan. 1st at night before bed as usual for about 8 months. The test was on Jan. 30th and unfortunately I tested positive for marijuana. That was 29 days after smoking, I really thought I wouldn’t have a problem being that I only smoked a couple of hits each night before bed and not a contiuous habitual smoker. But I’ve been reading the Q&A’s in this article and came by this one by Brandon (October 8th, 2012) and you advised him that he shouldn’t have a problem because he hasn’t been smoking for a month. I was only 1 day short of a month and still came back positive. I don’t know the consequenses yet as work has not confronted me yet about it however the testing facility has contacted me and informed me of my positive results, CRAP!!!!!! I’m aproximately the same size as Brandon (6′ 4″ and 245lbs.) I’m hopeing I can convince them to test me again claiming an inaccurate test because of possible low levels. It’s been another 10 days since the 1st test and I’m hoping that the retest if alowed will put me in the clear. I still haven’t smoked since the 1st of Jan. and have been flushing with copious amount’s of water since the positive notification.

  58. I just took a drug test yesterday and smoked twice in in like 2 weeks. It was a nick separated into and mixed with tobacco in cigarettes. It’s been roughly a week since smoking. I have smoked like 4 times in the last 2 months and have not done anything for detox, is there a chance I passed?

  59. Great article :) I haven’t heard anyone mention jello in years!!!! I passed my first drug screen 16 years ago using gelatin !!! My big brother who is military man had suggested it to me, back then it was 2 hours before test box of jello & 1 liter water, 1 hour before test box of jello & another liter water, then on way to test 1 liter water (it sure is a hell of a lot of water to drink). I have heard these days that you should also take multi-vitamin every day few days before test turns your “watery pee pee” nice shade of yellow. Maybe the next generation will be able to look back at these old stoner posts & say “WOW pot used to be illegal??”

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words. I’m glad to know the jello strategy has been around a while and that you used the same water/jello ratio as I described here.

      And I love that last sentence. It made me smile. One day, my friend. :)

  60. What’s up? First off, thanks for taking the time to post this info! So, I thought my piss would be dirty on the day of my piss test since I hit a joint about 2 weeks before my test and another one previously about a week and a half before that. I got some urine from a very trustworthy female friend (I’ve read gender wont be tested, she’s not pregnant or on period, only friend accessible), she didn’t piss enough in crotch bottle! :( I had been working out (cardio) 3 days on, 2 days off since last hit and prior. Had to use what i had since it was test morning. My urine was clear since I had been drinking nothing but water lately (not enough for dilution since i thought her sample would be enough) so I decided it would be ok if I added a little of mine to the sample, dilute mine even more and, bring it the “line”. Took a take home test once I got home for peace of mind and it produced a faint pink line! Negative! Not sure what the faint pink line indicates as far as concentration on these tests so do you think I’m fine? Thanks!

    1. Well you’ve probably gotten the results back by now, but if not I’d be surprised if you failed it. When you got home, did you test your urine without diluting it as you had at the clinical drug test? I have no idea what the colors mean when it comes to home drug tests, it should say on the packaging. If you didn’t dilute your urine for the home drug test, and a positive result shows up as pink, but it was only a faint pink, that probably means that you would have failed the clinical drug test had you not diluted/substituted your urine.

      Please come back and let me know what the result was, I’m interested to find out.

      1. Hello! Sorry it’s been a while. Yes! I passed. I have smoked a few times since working also. I try to keep a decent sized bottle with a larger opening in my work bag just in case I have to ask my friend for a random sample. I try to space my uses like 1 1/2-2 weeks apart since I now know that for me hydrating and doing aerobic exercises slightly more than I would normally brings me generally below testable thc levels in urine in just over a week after moderate ( 1-3 sessions a week) use. Again, I am 5′ 11″ at 135-140 lbs. fairly high metabolism. I ate meals high in carbs the couple of weeks before the test also then slowed down just days before the test. guess it was kinda like loading on the “fat” so my body starts to burn it slower then starving it for the test. in some biological way, it makes sense and i don’t feel like trying to explain it…to you or myself..lol. anyway, those were my results. Choosing the friend for your substitute sample seems to be the hardest part.

  61. Thanks for the helpful information. What kind of window will this provide in terms of hours of being able to produce a clean sample? I have about an hours drive to the facility and don’t know how long it will take before I have to give a sample. I plan on a test run this weekend, 3 weeks clean, to try and get it right. Tried dilution with home tests and have failed all five I’ve done after two weeks of abstaining.

    1. Copied from below:

      There’s certainly – in theory – a period of time after the pectin is ingested during which the ‘drug test fooling’ effects are the greatest, though it’d be close to impossible to pinpoint it, and would be different depending on the individual. However – and once again this is an inferred opinion – I believe generally this hotspot lies between 90-150 minutes after the pectin is ingested. Having said that, I may be entirely wrong about that, so it’s a good idea to start drinking a lot of the sure-gel mix four – maybe even five – hours before the test. It wouldn’t be wise to just drink a lot at exactly two hours before the test and stop there. You’ll want to just keep chugging as much of the mix as you can (not literally AS MUCH as you can, but a lot) during the roughly 4-5 hours prior to the test.

      To add to this, I come to the above conclusion by going off my understanding of how the human body processes pectin. The 90-150 minute period would be where, according to my limited understanding, the pectin is actually binding to the bile which carries the toxin-laden fat cells. Once this happens, those fat cells (and the toxins the fat cells are carrying) won’t be expelled through your urine.

      Thanks for the question!

  62. ok my question is that i just got a random urine test today for work.it was a 10 panel test and it came out to be a non negative but the collector didn’t tell me much more then that other then they had to send it out to a lab.the only thing i do as far as drugs is i smoke a bit of pot.the last time i smoked was saturday the 29th of sept.and before that i had smoked a bit for a few days.is there any way around this non negative test?also the collector asked for my id but i didn’t have it with me but they continued with the test anyways,i thought that you needed your id for them to test you?i live in the state P.A and about 5foot 7in and only weigh around 110lbs.the only other thing that i can think it could be is maybe naproxen the OTC ones from walmart.any insight to this would help alot and thank you for your time in advance.

  63. In your opinion would it help to drink water mixed with sure-gel in the few days PRIOR to the test, not just the day of? Or perhaps both? I’m just worried about the piss being too diluted.
    I test in 4 days, and have been clean for 4.

    Also – fantastic article! Thanks for all the stats!

    1. Thanks for the compliment. Before answering I want to be clear that this is totally just an inferred opinion based on my limited understanding of human metabolism and how the body processes pectin. I doubt drinking the sure-gel mix in the days prior would do any good whatsoever. Simple logic indicates the ‘drug test fooling’ effects of ingesting pectin last only as long as it takes for the body to process it – perhaps even shorter – which is probably somewhere in the 5-7 hour range. That’s not to say you shouldn’t stay hydrated in the days prior to the test.

  66. Awesome article I’m at awe by the way you explained the necessary steps to pass a drug test!! By far the best way to gather information about my little dilemma. I have to summit a urine sample on the second of October last time I smoked was about three days ago I took two hits and before that was a week when I smoked a blunt about a gram little more maybe and one time before that on the fourth smoked ab out a half a gram. I was clean for a month before! I’m proud I went that long haha anyways I’m worried about my upcoming U.A because they will put me away and I would lose my job and don’t know how my wife could support our family because she would have to be home more due to the fact I watch our children at night. I’m 145 150 pounds I’m a butcher and moving around. What step should I take? Thank you this article made my day!!

  67. Hey man I have a quick question. My friend and I each hit a joint, 2 pulls each, today (myself for the first time him for the first time after five years). We have a drug test coming up for an NYC TLC license renewal on October 5 (today is the 21st of September). We both are overweight (he thirty pounds and myself seventy pounds) but we are fairly active individuals. Also neither of us really got high. What are our liabilities?

    1. Assuming you didn’t smoke in the month prior, and won’t smoke again before the 5th of October, I can say with absolute positivity that you’ll be clean by then. I’m not even so sure the test would pick up on the toxins that were left behind by the two hits you both took if you were tested today. Having said that, just to be safe, remain as active as you can and stay hydrated. But there’s no reason either of you should be sweating it on the 5th. Your body has plenty of time to get rid of the toxins before then.

  68. Okay I have a question…I’ve been clean from weed 3 months prior from my first smoke session which was around August 30 and my friend and I smoked a dime bag but didn’t use all of it..my next smoke session was two weeks after on Sept. 12 and three of my friends and I smoked 3 joints…I recently found out I have a drug test for my clinical in nursing school on Sept. 25 so about 2 weeks from my last smoke session…I’m 5’6 and 220 lbs (def. overweight)..I have been drinking a lot of water for a diet I have started and doing cardio at least 30 minutes a day…do you think I will be okay for the drug test without having to use masking agents, etc?

    1. Gah! Thanks for this question. I should have been way more explicit about this in the article.

      Sure-Jell is what you’re looking for here. Holy shit would you have to eat a lot of Jell-O and gummy bears to reach the desired effect. Sure-Jell is literally just unflavored Jell-O. It’s even made by Kraft. And you’re going to be mixing it with a lot more water than you normally would to make solid gelatin. Upon mixing it, it should be drinkable. If not, you used too little water. Given that it’s unflavored, it should be more or less just like drinking water, albeit perhaps with a thicker texture to it.

      Thanks again for the question, I gotta update this article a little bit.

  69. So a question…lets say i have a drug test coming up on the 11th of september. I smoke a pretty regular amount, but I know about these tests long before they come along. I was clean for a test on July 6th, and quit on august 26th to pass this test. I was also fortunate enough to spend 10 days in 85 degree sunshine in hawaii during this clean period. Do you think I’ll be clean? This is the 4th piss test the court has given me…you’d think these assholes would get the picture by now. Btw it is a dip test. For court. Sound fishy? Trust me it is.

  70. So your telling me, if i smoke all day, come home to a stick drug test, to just add a little toilet water to my pee and im good? Seems a little sketchy to me. Doesent clorox bleach do the same thing but better? Or anything else that would be positive to pass a stick test?

    Like this

    1. Clorox bleach will only make it smell like bleachy piss. You’ll have to use judgement here. If you really smoke a lot, you’re going to want to dilute it as much as you possibly can. But like I said in the article, these tests aren’t designed to detect ANY amount of toxins in your urine; there is a threshold. So while diluting it doesn’t take any toxins out of the urine, it lowers the number of toxins that exist per milliliter. As long as you dilute the sample to such a point that the amount of toxins in it goes below that threshold, you’re in good shape. If you smoke a lot, you may need to mix up to 75% water with the urine.

      1. Thank you so much, amazing article.. Wish I found it before doing my own research for days.. I have a question about substitution since I don’t have time to detox. I do however want to pee clean within a few weeks, so ill be following all steps eventually. My question involves the heating of urine.. There are mixed opinions everywhere about whether or not it is ok to microwave it. Also curious about how many hours a fresh sample can be sacked.. Another question is, will the test become contaminated as a result of the heated plastic bottle. I thank you in advance for your reply, and again a great article. You are a credit to law-abiding stoners everywhere!

        1. I had to use a friends urine twice to get in to nursing school and used this trick.

          First, i made sure to pick a trust worthy friend that i knew did not smoke or use any drugs (was very hard to find!) after i confirmed he would piss for me, i went to a sport/camping store and bought 2 hand warmers. They should have the temp range on the cover. You should get the ones that range from 94-100 degrees.

          I then found a small plastic bottle (just used a hand sanitizer squeeze bottle that was washed out about 15 times with hot water) make sure the bottle is small enough to hide in your pants. Most labs require you to empty your pockets out in front of them.

          The day of the test, my friend came over at 9am and the test was taken at 11:30am. He voided into the squeeze bottle and then i place the 2 hand warmers on the bottle. (One on each side) kept the bottle in the open until i arrived at the lab and then stuck the bottle in my pants between the belt buckle and my gut. Went in, acted normal, did as they said, went in to the bathroom and squeezed the urine into the test cup. Make sure to make as little noise as possible and adjust the time spent in the bathroom. Dont go in and walk out 10 seconds later. Thats just obvious if you ask me

          Passed both time no problem!

          I hope this helps

          1. Thanks for contributing this. It’ll certainly be helpful for people who want to go with substitution but can’t afford the Whizzinator. It’s a rather ballsy way of going about it if you ask me, but if you feel confident in your ability to keep cool during the process, I’d say go for it.

            Thanks again! :)
