Although cannabis is legal for medical use in Mississippi, employers may still conduct mandatory drug testing, and they usually screen for THC among other drugs. It is up to the employer whether they choose to recognize a medical card as a good reason for a positive drug test result.

If you are considering getting a medical card, you should be aware of how long THC can stay in your body in order to be knowledgeable about drug tests. You should also be sure to check with your employer about their drug testing policies.

Drug Tests

The amount of time THC can stay in your system varies due to a number of factors. However, the type of drug test being administered can make all the difference in the world. There are four main types of drug tests:

  • Urine

  • Saliva

  • Hair

  • Blood

Urine tests are by far the most commonly used tests because of their long detection window. They are also relatively cheap and easy to administer, and non-invasive. Employers will typically use urine tests.

Blood tests are good indicators for recent drug use, and can detect THC for up to 48 hours after a person’s last use. Typically, if you test positive for THC on a blood test, it means that you are still somewhat under the influence of marijuana.

Blood tests are invasive and expensive to administer, so employers will rarely use them. However, law enforcement use blood tests quite often to determine if a person is intoxicated after a suspected DUI.

Saliva tests are also rarely used because they have a very narrow detection window. Saliva tests will only detect THC if you have used marijuana within the last 72 hours. They are also relatively unreliable and are known to generate false positives.

Hair tests are used about 10% of the time by employers. They have the longest detection window and can pick up THC for up to 3 months after last use.
