    woah, 25 grams or less? thats like….a really good half?? I think we’d be going to the jailhouse for that in Illinois. I used to have a friend that had a thing from a oncologist that if she got caught with marijauna she’d still get taken in but she wouldnt be charged. Doctors dont usually give drug tests unless there is a reason for it. If its just a routine test, diabetes, infections whatever, they arent checking for drugs.
