Don’t mess up your chance to get your drug case dismissed

If you are charged with possessing an illegal drug or underage drinking, you may have a chance to get your case dismissed through a Diversion Program.  However, if you are not clean, you will not be able to take advantage of that opportunity.  Hire an experienced attorney to guide you through this process.  You may need to delay your case until you are “clean”.  A “diluted” screen is not considered “passed”, so don’t be misled by others that you can flush out your system to pass a drug test.  The only way to know for sure that you will pass the test is to abstain from using any illegal drugs or alcohol.  And, yes, alcohol can be detected going back as much as 4 days on an ETG test.

See: https://www.redwoodtoxicology.com/services/etg_testing:

“EtG is a direct metabolite of alcohol (ethanol). Its presence in urine may be used to detect recent ethanol ingestion, even after ethanol is no longer measurable. The presence of EtG in urine is an indicator that ethanol was ingested and can be detected in urine for up to 80 hours after ingestion.”
