No one wants to face a drug test, but anyone who tokes should be aware of some basic testing facts. You know, just in case.

And if a drug test is indeed looming in your future, we suggest checking out our Drug Testing 101guide for more in-depth advice. Regardless, you don’t want to be caught blind-sided by these 7 drug testing myths.

Myth #1 - All companies will require you to pass a drug test.

Most stoners heard throughout their college and young adult years that once they enter the real world, all employers will want you to pass a drug test. While this may be true for many entry-level positions, outside of the medical and engineering fields, most employers don’t care if you do drugs or not—as long as its not on their time. There are always exceptions, however, so tread with caution and research your industry.

Myth #2 - Drinking lots of water before a test makes it harder to detect THC.

This one is less of a myth and more of a warning: While drinking water will dilute your urine andpossibly make THC undetectable, it can also send a warning to the company testing you. Most drug tests track levels of creatinine, a byproduct of the digestion process. Diluting your urine will also dilute creatinine, which can be a red flag to the company and often leads to even more extensive testing.
