Took drugs days ago…why was I arrested for DUI
Drug use and DrivingMany individuals have questions about how long drugs will stay in their system. Unfortunately, there is no simple answer. The length of time will depend on your weight, height, body fat, age, health status, or stress level. Additionally, the amount and frequency, potency and quantity of consumption will also affect a drug test.
