It can happen at any time from the day you attest until the day you leave.

Bear in mind that some drugs will stay in your system for many months...

No, your medical exam doesn't include a drugs test.

The doctor may ask about substance abuse, if applicable, but a urine test isn't for drugs; it's for things like glucose levels.

No it doesn’t. The urine test isn’t looking for drugs.

Would they be able to detect “weed” in your system when they’re doing the piss test for glucose levels etc ?

I hope that's not your real name you've used/poorly disguised as your TSR username...

Something tells me it might not be the drug test that gets them caught out...

Before you get to that stage you'll already have been for interview where they ask about drug use and you will have given them an honest answer.....

I wasn’t asked about drug use, during my selection interview they just read me their policy on drugs and asked if I understood.

If you are referring to your medical then i don't believe they can. But if you are smoking weed/ doing drugs during your application then I think you're being pretty stupid. If you're wanting to join the armed forces then drugs probably shouldn't be in the question as soon as you apply. I've tried weed before many moons ago, but once I applied for the RAF all of that goes out of the window as in training you can't risk getting a dishonourable discharge all because you wanted a cheeky puff on a joint. If you are, and i don't want to appear like i am accusing you, smoking weed still... i'd try stopping.
