When will meth leave your system?

Meth is a drug that can produce very intense results, but it tends not to last for long. However, even after that high has passed, the drug may still be in your system, and it could be detected.

Generally, no matter how you feel, the peak amounts that are in the blood and able to be detected will be found about 10-12 hours after the drug is used. Meth can be used in a few different ways, such as snorting it, smoking it, or injecting it.

Even after that 12-hour mark, though, despite the falling levels, the drug could still be detectable. Studies vary a bit, but some say it can be detected as long as 34 hours after use, while others claim it is still detectable in smaller amounts nine days later. For a detection that late, urine tests are often used.

There are many contributing factors that play into this, so detection times aren't the same for everyone. How often you use meth on a regular basis makes a difference. How much of it you take can change the process. As noted above, there are multiple ways to take it, so which way you choose also matters.

After you take meth, it passes through the kidneys and liver and is then excreted from the body. As such, the functionality of these organs plays a role in how long it is going to stay in your system.

If a test was conducted and you were charged with having used and possessed met in Maryland, take a moment to familiarize yourself with all of your legal options.
