Drug Testing

I am a parent with two older teens and I worry about them using marijuana. I sometimes suspect that my kids may have tried this and I am concerned with them using this drug and also the potential of it being a gateway to other drugs. I went online to see if there were any home drug testing kits that I can use that will work to detect marijuana in their system.

I found several tests that can be used to test for this drug and most of them work by using a urine test. From what I understand, the best time to test is in the morning before the individual has a chance to drink any products that can wipe the substance from their system. While most sites state that marijuana stays in the system for 7 days, some of the other sites mention that it only stays in there for 3 days. I also know that there are some detoxifiers that can rid the body of the drug, although I think they have to be taken right before the test.

I am wondering which product is best to use when it comes to drug testing for your kids and if other parents out there have also had this experience. Do some products work better than others when it comes to detecting marijuana in the system? And do all recommend that testing be done in the morning or should it be at other times? I realize random drug testing of my kids may seem out of line to some parents but the way that I feel, if they live under my roof, they need to live by my rules. I am just trying to do what is right for my kids.
