Actually, MS, it is cannabis, aka, marijuana that stays the longest in the body. Absorbed by fatty tissues. For heavy users (multiple joints every day for a prolonged period), cleanup time could be as long as 6 weeks... for a casual user, with lots of fluids drunk, as little as one or two weeks.

SE ,yes, you are correct, my bad, I got it mixed up

hcanada wrote:and yes eagle is right about that statement, but no i stay away from those hard drugs. cannabis over in canada is hardly ever enforced by the local authorities. every tom dick and harry has either tried it or is doing it. as it is legally use for medical purposes over here.


@hcanada again you worry too much. If you knew you are going for medical check up in a month time, then stop using the drugs !!
But you will definitely be downgraded if you get caught and will not join the tougher battalions like the Guards or Armour and maybe become driver in the army.
What do you want CMPB to tell you? It is alright to take pot... Canada , NZ and OZ to smoke pot for medicinal purpose is not illegal

Dear Mad Scientist

I have been tracing this topic quite closely and clearly you seem to have a plethora of knowledge on this topic. I would be grateful if I can get some advise from you. Could you please pm me?

Mad Scientist wrote:Good on your parent to do all that. I am sure they either post a bond of $75K or use two sureties to ensure that you stay overseas to complete your education. SG Gahmen only allows formal education up to A level or Diploma. Tertiary Education will be after NS completion. Your parent did what they thought was right but here is the minefield
1. If they post bond and you did NOT return. The $$$ will be forfeited but you are still liable and considered NS defaulter
2. If they provide two sureties i.e one living relative in SG and the other will be one of your parent name, if you failed to return, your living relative that has provided his/her name for surety will be held in court and liable. So does your parent.You are still liable
Hence I can understand why your parent is adamant that you return to serve as either way they will suffer the consequence of your action

Here's the thing that you may or may not realise. You are still a Sger FULLSTOP. If some reason Canada cancel your PR, you still have SG to fallback. To have this privilege, you have to perform your duties i.e NS. If you wish not to do it, your family should apply for Canada Citizenship and renounce years ago.
As of now, you are NS age stage, it may not be fair to you but spare a thought for your parents as they thought they are providing you an opportunity to study overseas.
Your family should have acquire Canadian citizenship as a back up plan. It is too late now as everything is falling into its places.
It is only One Year and 10 months max. How hard can it be?
I did my time too. I have kids much older than you but I did everything by the book and more.

hcanada wrote:i also have another question...in the pre-enlistment medical screening, what do they search for, in the sense of urine and blood test?


i know this reply comes late, but better late than never...

pre-enlistees have to undergo something called Medical Classification at CMPB. before that, the young man will usually get a form to fill out..

at CMPB, the young man has to tell the doctor (medical officer) about the issues raised in the form.

he should also bring proof for the problems raised in the above-mentioned form - eg, if you think you can't squat, bring along your films and doctor's note.

some common tests will also be conducted... ECG... dental... x-ray... blood work... eye sight... more tests/referrals might be ordered, at the MO's discretion.

if the MO has reason to suspect that the young man is using drugs, then he CAN request that the blood be tested accordingly.

(if you exhibit drug use or withdrawal symptoms, then don't blame the system or the MO.)

when all tests/referrals are concluded or after the young man leaves the MO's office, the MO will decide how to medically classify the young man. good luck!
