Lee - just saw this and curious to know how the test went and if you are still smoking. It looked like you traded one addiction for another, no alcohol for weed. There are support groups out there, so I hope that you were able to get help.

Hello, welcome to Healthcaremagic. The weed can remain in body from few days to few months depending on the amount consumed and duration for which it was used. As you were a very heavy user of it i suspect it would take a long abstenance period before you come out clean. But it is difficult to predict as such. Non heavy users usually clean up there system in 7 to 8 days. But it would definitely be a longer period in your case. Wish you good health.
