(Ok, first off let me apologize for the long post, but I have seen many posts on the web regarding this issue that i did not feel covered the facts thoroughly enough to get a good answer that I can trust) Ok guys please either ease my mind or make me call my recruiter to cancel....... So I used to be a daily smoker..... 3-4 joints a day when possible.... It was pretty good mid grade.. I rarely smoke dro because I chose quantity over quality (a long story that will go far off topic lol) also my j's weren't big fatty's, but I don't usually roll super thin joints either (usually at least a .5) Well I decided to join the ARMY. As much as I love weed, it is not worth spending the rest of my life in the slums and I am committed to not smoking anymore for the sake of my family and my future. I have been clean for somewhere in the vicinity of 3 months (maybe not quite 3 months but pretty close) I have been smoking like this for about 5 years (sometimes i couldnt afford it but for the better part of those 5 years this was my routine) After quitting for good, I took a home test (50ng) at like 20-30 days and failed... Did the same test again at around 35-40 days and failed again.... took the test again at about 60 days and failed again..... I took the test again a few days ago (lost track but really around 3 months maybe a week or 2 off) and I passed (woot woot!!!) I finished processing at the recruiters and and took another test there and passed also! (they require you to take a preliminary drug test within 7 days before going to meps)..... I should ad that the home test I took was a 50ng and I assume the same for the recruiters test... THE PINK LINE WAS PRETTY FAINT BUT STILL VISIBLE..... Especially when compared to the other drugs that I have never used. ( also I should add that I am 24 years old, 5ft 8in. always varied between 195-210 and I have a slow metabolism and i don't exercise much) Now here is where my concerns come in.... There are a lot of mixed answers on the web about the MEPs drug test. I know it is only a urin test, but I have seen many different responses about whether the initial strip test they do is 50ng 20ng or 15ng.... I am concerned that since I was am just now able to pass the 50ng that I may not be able to pass a 20ng and especially not a 15ng.... Also I have seen many different responses as to whether or not all tests get sent to lab and how the lab testing works. Some people have said that MEPS does a 50ng test and as long as it passes they go no further... Some have said that it is a 20ng test and if it passes they go no further.... Many people have said that they send ALL tests to a lab. Now about the answers I have seen regarding the lab... Some say they do a full test ever time and require 0ng to pass or u fail. If they even find 1ng of whatever they are looking for in regards to weed, u fail. Some say that if the lab gets it and it passes as an initial negative they do not do the gas test or anything and you are clear. Some say that if u pass but the line is faint they will do gas tests in which case if u are not at 0ng you are screwed..... So bottom line, I need somebody who understands MEPS tests to tell me how it works. I know I can pass a 50ng test at this point no problem (plus If I still go Thursday, I plan to stay up all night on Wednesday drinking water so that I don't have to worry about that first pee of the day issue, I'll get through being tired as long as i know I can pass the UA) But If they are doing anything more in depth than a 50ng, I am scared and will just have to do it later and possibly lose the job and ship out date I have reserved. (again my line was a fainter pink line so I assume it detected something, just not enough to go over the 50ng threshold and count as a fail...) Also my recruiter mentioned that if u failed at meps they used to let u retry in 45 days but now if you fail you are barred from all branches for life. I don't know if this is true or if he was just trying to scare me, but I do not want to take that risk. Again sorry for the exceptionally long post and thanks in advance. And any thorough responses will be greatly appreciated.... I mean I really only have until Wednesday morning to cancel this thing. Its technically Tuesday right now (4:30am) so i got like 24 hours to figure this out) thanks again guys!
