    Answered . I don't see how a test taken so long after the incident would be probative or admissible to show that you were intoxicated when the incident occurred. Even if THC metabolites remain in your blood for thirty days (I don't know if they do) it doesn't show actual impairment at the time. Talk to a DUI or criminal atty. to make sure before you take any tests.
