    1st day of probation drug testing
    Hello I am a 20 year old and basically I will be on the ARD program in pennslyvania starting August tenth this year... I basically quit smoking however I have a very large desire to smoke and its killing me... if I stopped the day before I was sentenced would they give my body leeway time to clear out this system.. *NOTE THAT iw ill not smoke whilst on ARD aka very relxed probation) thanks

    You say "smoking". Are you talking about cigarettes? Crack? Pot?

    Only weed and I have not been put on ARD yet, however I will on August 10th, my lawyer just told me that they would give you leeway time to clear all the drugs out of the system aka if I took a test the first day on ARD and failed they would realize that I had smoked before I was sentenced... should I trust him?

    Hello d:

    They SHOULD. But, that doesn't mean they WOULD. They AREN'T nice people, after all.

    Yes. Know that pot will stay in your system for about 30 days. Quit now and stay off it while you are in the program and you should be fine.

    Don't lie to them about when you last used. Tell them straight up and go from there.

    ... and use whatever resources they offer to help you get off it for good.
