For treating anxiety, I traded prescribed Xanax for unprescribed cannabis and I'm very happy. Extremely happy. Occasionally giddy. How honest should I be with my doctor? If I tell them, does that tell my insurance company I'm involved with illegal activities or something? Is that info available to my boss who pays for insurance?
I have a job interview in a few days that involves a urinalysis. So I put down the pipe (3 days ago) and hit up Erowid and the AskMe archives to see what my options were. Lots of water, check--I'm at 5 liters a day. Exercise and sweating, check--it's 109 outside and I walk everywhere. Supplementing with creatine....ah, that's the tricky one. Everyone recommends it, but very few of those people give an actual dose-per-day. The sources that do
vary wildly, anywhere between 50mg a day
to 24645mg a day
. I feel like both of those extremes won't do, hell, the twenty-thousand dose isn't even doable.
I'm looking for
: a dosage schedule (amount/frequency) for creatine that will make the pee of a 150lb 19 y/o male (who is consuming 5 liters of water a day) have acceptable creatinine levels. [more inside]

I just had an offer for my absolute dream job at a large British bank in New York rescinded 2 days before I was to show up for work. I had signed all forms and passed the background check, but I came up as positive on the (gc-ms

. I have never taken a benzodiazepine and am posting anonymously so you know I have zero reason to lie. [more inside]

HR/YANML filter: One of my assistants had an on-the-job injury today, and at the hosptial, they failed to give her the pee test drug screening that our company requires. She's concerned that they may use that as basis for claiming that she refused the test, and therefore will be on her own for the expense. I don't feel like this is the case, but I wanted someone with a more informed answer to help me reassure her.
So, do they have the burden of proof if they claim she refused? How long after the event can they require it?
