44. 1. Stop consuming ANY substance that might trigger a positive OR false positive
This is not as easy as you might think.

For example, a commonly prescribed NSAID called etodolac (trade name Lodine) can trigger a false positive for cannabis on one of the most commonly used tests.

DO SOME RESEARCH ON THIS!!! A false positive can lead to a much more sensitive gas chromatography test which will detect things that you consumed much farther in the past.

2. DILUTE!!!

Drink LOTS of water in the days leading up to the test. On test day, power down water. Don't give them your first urine of the day, and don't give them the first part of the stream.
