Drugs Test?

#1
So i have my date for ADSC (July 27th/8th) joining as a junior.
I have NEVER taken nor do i intend to take any kind of illegal drug

However, i recently went to a party, celebrating leaving school and as it happens one of my "friends" (i use that loosely) was boasting about smoking weed. Whether or not he was - since he is a massive bullsihtter - my question is, the drugs test that everyone is subjected to how sensitive is it? And can it tell the difference between actually taking the drugs, and in this scenario passive smoking from some prick.

Thanks,
Dinnerz

The army went through a period of making "adverts" about the cdt, one was that to fail for passive smoking you'd need to spend like 24 hrs in a sealed phone box with 10 people chain smoking.

sent from my HTC Wildfire, so I probably should be working

The test is sensitive but the level of drug ingested by passive smoking is very low and even if standing next to a user at a party did register it would be in the sub cut off range with no action taken apart from a warning.

The guys are right don't worry, you'll be fine.

Make sure you study hard for your drugs test !

Seriously,the urine test at ADSC is for medical reasons only

Google "URISTIX" or "MULTISTIX" if you want to know more.

Biggles4221, You must be a REMF is all I can say. I wouldnt much fancy a drugged up off his head cocain addict in my section during a firefight!

Are you for real?

Second what's been said above, the bar for a positive result is set so high that you will not get one from passive smoking. One thing to mention though is that should you ever attend a party with this bellend again once you are in the forces and someone hands you a dodgy rollup or a brownie a) don't accept it (obviously) or b) if you have accidentally ingested any drugs like this fess up to your boss ASAP. It doesn't improve your credibility if you wait to get CDT'd and then trot out the excuse.

As an aside I once had one lad who claimed he's been taking Hemp Oil as a dietary supplement as an explanation for a positive Cannabis CDT. Having asked the boys in white coats for their opinion they said that it was theoretically possible but he'd had to have drunk upwards of a gallon a day to achieve the readings that he did!

Get a second sub cut-off though and Mr 130A will take an interest.

Hey Mucker,

I guess you can put this down to a lesson learnt, when you join the Army you will be with others who reject that kind of lifestyle (99.9% anyway). Those that don't are soon caught and kicked out!

In the finest traditions of the British Army, Concentrate on drinking, and shagging pig ugly women!

Well I'm a bellend and I used to smoke alot of weed, daily basis. Anyway I quit outright in October 2011 and I'm now smokefree! But yeah, because I smoked so much is the crap going to still be in my system? And if it is when I do my medical at selection and it turns up, am I basically fudged?

In short yes it will be in your system and in hair samples for a lot longer. Yeah sounds line you were a bell end I honestly don't know where you stand with this but in my opinion I don't fancy your chances HOWEVER as I said I genuinely don't know and I am only guessing. Best bet is go into the Selection centre speak to the staff and get a DS answer. Be prepared to be told to come back in 6mths time though, that is something I genuinely have seen happen. Go in ask the question and be pukka honest about what you have tried etc because if you are tested the tests are very sensitive! and are wrong very few and far between.

Hmm. Well ill likely be going in February, that'll be 6 months since I've smoked anything, bar a few ciggies whilst drunk. Even if it doesn't show up I'll be honest and tell them everything I've done. I'm basically a loner now, I cut myself off from practically all my mates because they ALL do drugs so I don't talk to em anymore to avoid temptation. And their general wastes of good oxygen...
