If they run it through GC/MS, they'll get to the bottom of SWIY's drug
test and unfavourable results.
(and its metabolites, desmethyldiazepam, 1-hydroxydiazepam (aka temazepam
), etc.) can (and do) remain in the body for weeks. Depends on the sensitivity of the test. Diazepam is relatively low-potency, so it shows up relatively easy in very sensitive tests that are sensitive enough to pick up high-potency benzos
such as alprazolam
Diazepam's half life is what, 2 days? So if SWIY took 10mg of diazepam, after 2 days, there would be 5mg, after 4 days, 2.5mg, after 6 days, 1.25mg, after 8 days, 0.675mg, after 10 days, 0.375mg, etc.
The most sensitive tests can at least
detect triazolam 0.125mg, so on the most sensitive tests, they can figure out that SWIY taken a benzo
for at least 2-3 weeks afterwards.
