Other Answers Pot stays about 30 to 40 days if you smoke everyday then quit, coke stays about 2 to 3 days, the rest I don't think stays very long maybe a day or two! I have found that it varies by person and by substance. generally, weed stays in your fat cells (and therefore urine) for anywhere from 3 weeks - 3 months. although your first time it goes away a lot faster (like 3-7 days). opiate pain pills and some other prescription narcotics last in your system for 4-6 hours and the metabolized chemical precursors (which are what actually show up on drug tests)are gone after 2-5 days. with the exception of DXM, OTC drugs don't show up at all on tests. nicotine stays in your system for 14 days, alcohol for 4-6 hours. acid never leaves your body and stays in your spinal fluid (not urine). X lasts up to a week. shrooms don't show up on regular tests. oh but blood tests show everything youre on at the moment and hair samples go back 10 years and will show every substance you've ever done as well. i will say that some people keep things in their system for very long/very short periods of time, and these people are either very lucky or need to be very careful. Acid does not stay in your spinal fluid. This is an urban legend. In reality, it is quickly metabolized and gone from the body in a few days. Regardless, it is not tested for in any standard drug test. On average, amphetamines will stay in your system from 1-4 days, depending on many factors including amount used, frequency of use, bodyweight, metabolism, etc. New entry: Everyone should be aware that some drugs, both prescription and elicit, are stored in fat cells. If you're reading this article because your wondering if someone is back on drugs, keep this in mind. If a recovering addict is now getting back into shape and they exhibit physical signs of drug use they may have released some stored drugs when they burned off some fat. This is not usually the case; statistically they probably are back on drugs but at least this give a shadow of a doubt if you will. Acid DOES NOT QUICKLY LEAVE YOUR BODY. It can hide in your fat cells for a long time. This goes for PCP, LSD, and Meth.
What is microbial transformations?
"Transformation" refers to a change in the heritable characteristics in bacteria that have been incubated with DNA of other bacteria. Some of these incubated bacteria will acquire some of the characteristics of the bacteria from which the DNA was extracted. The DNA enters the incubated bacteria through holes in the cell membrane, and gets incorporated into the bacterial genome.

Did reg park take steroids?
The truth is no body but Reg will ever know. It is LIKELY that he did for his 1965 victories and onwards, but not before this. If you see how massive he already was in the early 50's before DBol, then you will see he already had Godly genetics. So I would model him as a natural who trained and ate very well.

Can taking steroids for asthma actually stunt your growth?
Possibly, but there is no consensus on this. Steroids used for asthma treatment such as pulmicort (inhaled or oral) may possibly temporarily stunt growth in children. This is from drugs.com: "Cases of growth suppression have been reported for inhaled corticosteroids including post-marketing reports for Pulmicort RESPULES." http://www.drugs.com/sfx/pulmicort-side-effects.html Webmd website states that pulmicort may stunt growth in children, but that it doesn't affect final adult height: "Children may be more sensitive to the effects of too much corticosteroid medication. This medication may temporarily slow down a child's rate of growth if used for a long time. However, it will probably not affect final adult height. Monitor your child's height periodically." http://www.webmd.com/drugs/drug-19937-Pulmicort+Inhl.aspx?drugid=19937&drugname=Pulmicort+Inhl It also states: "The administration of inhaled budesonide via a different dry-powder inhaler in doses up to 800 mcg/day (mean daily dose 445 mcg/day) or via a pressurized metered-dose inhaler in doses up to 1200 mcg/day (mean daily dose 620 mcg/day) to 216 pediatric patients (age 3 to 11 years) for 2 to 6 years had no significant effect on statural growth compared with non-corticosteroid therapy in 62 matched control patients. However, the long-term effect of inhaled budesonide on growth is not fully known."

Should you take a steroid and antibiotic at the same time?
If the doctor prescribes both, it would be wise to take/use both. For instance, I was recently diagnosed with iritis and an inflamed cornea (eye problems). My opthamologists prescribed both a steroid and an antibiotic to treat my ailments. Thus, there is nothing categorically wrong with taking both at the same time. Of course, whether using/taking both is appropriate will be vary dependent upon your individual circumstances.
