The following is a chart showing the minimum and maximum detection time, on average, that certain drugs stay in a person’s system. (Values are based on an average person.)
Some people may metabolize drugs at a different rate and, thus, have slightly different time frames as to how long the drug will stay in the body.
Factors which affect metabolism:
* amount and frequency of use
* the body’s rate of metabolism
* your body mass (size)
* your age
* your tolerance to drugs or alcohol
* your overall health
* how drugs are taken
(swallowed, inhaled, smoked, injected)
Results may also very depending on the type of drug testing used.
