On Thursday the 15th I went to MEPS and failed a drug test after testing positive for marijuana. I stopped smoking weed after i first met with the recruiter and decided i wanted to join the army. this was around late February early march. when i started working with a recruiter i was 224 pounds and had to work down to 185 pounds to make it in. i was 190 pounds the day before Meps and had to dehydrate myself to make it to 185. while at meps i was told i had too much protein in my urine and had to come back on Monday the 19th to retest because of the protein. When i went back and retested they just checked for the protein and had me discard the urine. my recruiter is trying to get me a retest saying that the test shouldn't be valid due to the protein deficiency. i was wondering if there is any chance i can retest or if I am permanently disqualified? I am also wondering if the failed drug test could be due to my urine being so concentrated from the dehydration or from the weight loss? i thank you all in advance for any answers
I'm thinking the failed test is a result of smoking DOPE within 30 daysof going to MEPS.
If you can find a recruiter you might be able to try again in 6 months.
