Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Marijuana is usually detectable in urine for 7 - 10 days. Methadone is usually detectable for around 7 days in urine tests. But you have to remember that these are only average estimates and the period can vary depending on the severity and duration of the drug use.

So, if you are abstinent for the next 4 - 5 weeks, then it is unlikely that you will test positive. It's good that you have been able to cut down on the drugs, but I would suggest that you stop them completely, so as to avoid adverse health consequences.

Wish you all the best.

Hello Bam97
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Methadone is a opioid drug, 3 grams is not a low dose, and you are taking it since last 7 days, in usual conditions Urine tests are performed to test for methadone, normally the test comes positive for 10-14 days or simply 2 weeks.
Weed or marijuana smoker may test positive for about 2 weeks, in usual urine tests. But the situation depends upon person to person, in some cases test may come positive even after long time also.
Best in your situation is quit both drugs by gradual tapering, do regular exercises, drink plenty of fluid only then you will test negative.
