Urine test positive for drugs. Chances of passing preemployment drug test?

my son has a preemployment drug test today for Walmart.,..escreen, he finally fessed up and said he had a 3 hits of a bowl 27 days ago and nothing for many months prior to that and nothing since. I got a walgreens home test last night and tested him after he drank about 64 oz of cold water, urine was very water and cold and it tested postive, (no red line on the test line). His drug test is at 5:30 today...what do you think his chances are of passing? He s 5 7 and weighs about 130lbs

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. If your urine is positive for drugs and it has marijuana in it i.e. THC; the chances of you passing the preemployment drug test is very less. I also believe that you need to wait it out, for another 2-3 months when you have not smoked to find out if your urine is negative and only then go in for the preemployment. The other way around it is to get a quantitative drug test for all drugs of abuse and show gradually lower levels in each of the weekly quantitative tests; while also obtaining a letter from your psychiatrist attesting to the fact that you have either stopped or cut down on you usage of substances.

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