The only sure way to pass a drug test is to stop using drugs. Most drugs -- like opiates, cocaine, Ecstasy, or speed (amphetamines or methamphetamines) -- take about 72 hours (3 days) to leave your system, but you might want to wait at least 5 days to be safe.

For saliva tests, it is about the same (for any drug, including marijuana): 3 to 4 days.

If you cannot stop taking drugs for this long, then you are an addict and you really shouldn't be looking for a job, anyway. You should be in treatment. If you try to hold down a job while you are addicted to drugs, you are just going to mess up and end up getting fired. And then you won't be able to get a reference from that employer. It could permanently hurt your whole career.

The exception to this is marijuana. Unlike most other drugs, THC is fat-soluble: it stores itself in your fat cells. That's why drinking water won't do anything to remove it from your system, and that's why it takes such a long time to get it out of your system. Drugs like opiates or cocaine or speed stay in your bloodstream, so you can pee them out in a few days, but since THC stores itself in your fat cells, you basically have to work it off, like, exercise it off, which takes weeks, depending on your height and body weight. If you're short and skinny and you exercise a lot, you might have to stop smoking for only 2 weeks or so, but if you're large and you don't exercise, you'll have to wait a month, or even six weeks.

If you want to cleanse your system of marijuana -- only of marijuana -- more quickly, there are also detoxifying drinks you can take. I took one once (with success); it was called "Herbal Clean." You can buy them at GNC or other health stores like that. Except, they're just called detoxifying drinks or something. But if you ask the salespeople, they will usually know what you're talking about, and will find it for you.

Note that buying these drinks for the purpose of fooling a drug test is illegal. However, buying the drinks for any other reason is not illegal. So, do not say to the salespeople, "I need a drink to pass a drug test." Tell them, "I want a drink that will detoxify my system of drugs so I can get healthy." As long as you do not tell anyone that you want to pass a drug test, it is perfectly legal.
