Hey, I just got to college and the last time I smoked weed was on the 14th of August. I just smoked today though and was wondering how long it takes to get it out of your system.. I have a meeting with the recruiter during the last week of September and I'm not sure if he's gonna drug test me. For anyone who is in the Marines.. when you met with the recruiter do you get a drug test or is it not until you actually join?

Just make sure that you drink lots of water, exercise, and eat correctly. All of these will contribute to evacuating your system of any unnecessary toxins (ie THC). Oh, and don't smoke anymore.

They do drug test you before you go to MEPs (military entrance processing) and at MEPS, which is a much better test. They won't test you though till you go to DEP(Delayed Entry Program) in. Which will most likely be a while due to school the research of joining and talking it over. There are some recruiters that will use that test to see if you will pass and if you fail they make you wait longer till you pass. But the more honest ones will fill out a waiver. Also it is urinalysis so consume lots of niacin. You better cut that **** out when you get in my corps.

More often than not you will just get an Other than Honorable discharge. If you present your case good enough you can get a general discharge or even stay in. But it is all up to your chain of command. If you do something stupid while on drugs then you get the Court Martial and the Bad Conduct Discharge of Dishonorable Discharge with brig time

How much weed have you smoked previously? You dont want slow reactions when some taliban dude has an ak47 aimed at your skull.
#16
it takes like 30 days for it to leave the system, so you'll be fine. just start carrying a water bottle around and keep your fluids up just to be safe.

Dude, your in the clear. Haha My buddy did a bunch of crap, and then went for reserves (not sure how long later). If your really worried, what he did was just sit around the house chugging like bottles of cranberry juice, and wearing a whole bunch of sweaters to sweat, and peeing a whole bunch. hahaha he passed, and it wasnt just weed he had in him

Pfft, are you an officer?

No I am in a enlisted commissioning program. But I am going through school to finish my degree. Then OCS then Basic Platoon Leaders course. So my correct title should be to be JAG

lol
Yeah they are pretty much to themself. All they pretty much are is advisers to ROE, legality, and most famous for court marshals. Sometimes they do the contracts such as wills but more often than not they contract them to civilians. For the most part enlisted doesn't usually get involved.

Sure, but you have a guy wanting to join the armed forces who has obviously taken illegal substances and is probably going to cover up his use of it. Chances are he will get in.

That's all well and good, except for the fact that it violates DOD policy.

They don't arrest you for failing a drug test they just don't let you in. A friend of mine had it happen to him.

It's true...

Also, the MEPS test is pretty thorough, so I'd say wait 45 days to be on the safe side.

Have some respect for the man's decision. It takes a lot more balls to join the military, especially as a Marine, than it does to sit behind a computer and feel superior because no one can punch you in the face.

Thank you! If you want to protest war, that's fine, just don't attack the members of the armed forces. They don’t make the decision to start wars.

it depends on how fat you are...THC store in fatty tissues of the body...seeing as you're going to the marines, i imagine you'll be good

Everyone is under the assumption that everyone has done pot. While being illegal to use it does not disqualify you to join. While if it uses it after he leaves to basic then is when all the trouble happens. But someone who smokes in DEP can still join if during an interview at boot camp you say you smoke. You can fail but they still keep you there.
