What I learned at work today…

Filed under: Workin' for a living — by corazondeswiss @ 8:40 pm

While at work today I found something that made me ask:  What’s the half life of cocaine?  How long after you take it will you test positive for it?  Before anyone thinks anything of it, its not because I want to use this knowledge, although it could be useful as a party trick. 
I came back to my department to ask my co-workers if they knew.  No one did of course.  So we looked it up on the internets.  (How I love thee!) 
The answers: half life: 60-90 minutes  
                     detection: 1-5 days (but chronic users may test positive for longer)
Sometimes my job presents me with good opportunities for learning!



  1. Crap, I better stop using before my drug test on Monday.

    Kidding, kidding…
