Unfortunately, drug testing is an unavoidable reality for many employees. Even if you only smoke once in a while, a positive test could cost you your job, as unfair as it seems. On the good side, most employers are required to give you adequate notice of a drug test. This should allow you more than enough time to detox, either organically or with a few of the myriad detox solutions available. If you have a urine test, then we recommend that you read the article Best fake urine.

What if you have to pass a drug test right now? Is such a thing even possible? Let’s have a look at what we’ve got.
