A few different types of drug tests are administered for various reasons, but if you’re from North America, the most likely reason you’ll face being submitted to a drug test is, sadly, to keep your job. Despite the ever-changing attitude and perception of cannabis smokers worldwide, some countries like The United States continue to allow businesses and companies to test their employees for illicit drug use and terminate their employment based on positive results. Don’t even get me started about how irrational and immature it is to fire somebody just because they enjoy smoking a joint or two on the weekends. Someone could make a total ass of themselves every weekend, spending hundreds on alcoholic beverages at clubs and making questionable decisions like it it was their job. Still, they’d have nothing to fear when taking the mandated drug test at work. It’s not fair, but it’s how the world works for the moment. This article will focus on no matter what, but there are other types of drug tests, so make sure you find out which kind you should be worried about.
This should only be considered an option by super heavy smokers who probably have no other method they could rely on. For more infrequent users, there is another way, but if you need absolute certainty that you’ll get away with this because it’s your dream job, then listen up. If you go the route of shaving all the hair off your body, you can’t exactly do it the night before the drug test. That’s because if you show up without a single hair on your body, the exam practitioners will have nothing to test. So, they’ll send you away and tell you to submit a different sample to be analyzed, like saliva, urine, or blood, instead. Now you have a creepy hairless body and a whole other drug test to worry about. Your best bet is to shave all the hair off your body a good 4 or 5 days before the test. This way, your hair has a bit of time to grow back out, and there will technically be enough there to be tested. The hardest part about this plan is actually just being able to walk in with a straight face and maintaining that you spontaneously decided to entirely shave your body recently for some other reason totally unrelated to the drug test.
