About the State of Arizona
Arizona, also known as The Grand Canyon State, is located in the southwestern region of the United States with a population of 7.23 million as of 2019. It is most widely known for the U.S. National Park, the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon of the Colorado River is a mile-deep canyon (1.6 km) that bisects the park. Even though the average distance across the canyon is only 10 miles/ 16 km, it takes 5 hours to drive the 215 miles / 346 km between the park’s South Rim Village and the North Rim Village. Over 5 million people visit the Grand Canyon each year for various reasons such as to absorb all of the rich wildlife, the beautiful silence and stillness that engulfs you and for the one-of-a-kind events that are hosted there including the Grand Canyon Music Festival and the Native American Heritage Days. Like mule rides, there are endless possibilities when it comes to experiencing the Grand Canyon. The athletic and adventurous can choose from hiking and rafting. Those who may not be major outdoor enthusiasts or have a lot of time for a lengthy visit can enjoy sightseeing on a Grand Canyon helicopter tour such as those offered by Mustang Helicopters. No one ever leaves disappointed or forgets their visit to the Grand Canyon!

Drug detection in hair
Drugs or their metabolites may be detectable in hair. Hair grows at a rate of approximately 1cm per month so depending on the length of hair it may be possible to determine drug use over recent months.
A urine drug test, also known as a urine drug screen or a UDS, is a painless test. It analyzes your urine for the presence of certain illegal drugs and prescription medications. The urine drug test usually screens for:
- opioids (narcotics)
Alcohol can also be included in screening tests, but it’s usually detected through breath tests rather than urine screens.
A urine drug test can help a doctor detect potential substance abuse problems. After a drug test identifies drugs you may be misusing, doctors can help you start a treatment plan. Taking urine drug tests throughout substance abuse treatment helps to ensure that the plan is working and that you’re no longer taking drugs.
Cannabis: 7-30 days in urine and up to 2 weeks in blood.
Cocaine: 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood.
Codeine: 1 day in urine and up to 12 hours in blood.
Heroin:3-4 days in urine and up to 12 hours in blood.
It is broken down and excreted through your urine, making it detectable with urine drug testing for up to five days. Hair drug testing timelines have windows of up to 90 days.
Negative results are usually received within 24 hours; however, a positive screen will require further testing that may take a few days up to one week. If the initial screen is negative, a medical review officer (MRO) will typically contact the employer with the results.
If your urine is being tested only for a urinalysis, you can eat and drink normally before the test. If you‘re having other tests at the same time, you may need to fast for a certain amount of time before the test.
