I would like to tell you that the amount of time Marijuana stays in the body depends upon the frequency of the individual consuming it.

The most common method of detecting marijuana is a Urine test. Even if you drink lots of water it will not help because if the urine is too diluted you won't pass the test anyway.

THC is the form in which Marijuana is stored in the body. It is mostly stored in the body fat and accumulates over time.

Generally, if you have used it only once it takes about a week time to clear. If you are a frequent user, then it may take 15 days and if you are a regular user, then it may take up to one month.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
