Smoke marijuana, oral swab test to be done. Chances of passing the test?

Ok here we go; On 7/2/12 I was offered a job and informed my drug test would be an oral swab. So on the 2nd I stopped smoking marijuanna. Yesterday 7/10/2012, my first day of work, I was given my oral swab test and passed. Needless to say when I got home , knowing I had passed my test, rolled a 0.6g joint and smoke half. I was notified by another employee that another test was going to be given, actually 2 more tests total, randomly over next week. Naturally Im freaking out. I managed to get excused from work today due to family incident but must return tomorrow to office and think my 2nd test will be administered. Is it possible to pass my oral swab test tomorrow 7/11/12?

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. If you have been smoking marijuana, the oral swab test does not determine marijuana as far as I know. I do not believe the oral swab was to test for chemicals. I also believe that if you were taking the serum (blood) or the urine tox screen, you will be detected. A hair sample analysis will also detect the marijuana. I also believe that you might need to to consult a psychiatrist for a letter affirming the fact, if you failed any test but have stopped using, as there are quantitative analysis methods that could determine that you have stopped using over time. And it will also help you treat your withdrawals from the substance.

I hope this helps. Take care of yourself and have a lovely day!
