Drug test

I'm looking for some advice if possible. Well long story short I had to send my license back 5 year ago after having a stroke off a bomb of speed. I smoke green few times a week. Last year I applied for my license back and done a two week detox beforehand. Then they said my urine was too diluted for testing. I have a drug test a week and a half away. What will happen if it shows cannabis in my system does anyone know??
