Yes, out in under 8 days. More likely in 48 hrs.

Q Is there any other way for benzoylecgonine to be in your body other than the use of cocaine?

A Benzoylecgonine is one of several metabolic products of cocaine. It is formed from the hydrolysis of cocaine and is a very specific marker for the presence of that drug. If, however, benzoylecgonine is found in the urine, it is not evidence of illicit cocaine use.

There are at least two other ways that cocaine can get into a person's system. One way is from medical administration. Cocaine is a component of a topical anesthetic used by ear, nose, and throat specialists. These physicians should always tell their patients that they have used a cocaine-containing anesthetic and warn them that they could have a positive drug test for up to 48 hours after the use of the anesthetic.

Another, less obvious route of ingestion is drinking mate de coca, a coca leaf tea, which is also sold in health food stores as Health Inca tea. We reported a case in which a person drank some of the tea as part of a meal in a Bolivian restaurant in the United States. (1) The next day he had a positive drug screen. Although the imported tea is supposed to be de-cocainized, some may still contain cocaine in small amounts.

So my friend got charged with a DUI cuz the cops thought he was high on these prescription pills (anti anxiety) his gf had left in his car. So they say he was high and he submits to a blood test. Now he didn't test positive for the pills did for benzoylecgonine. Although there were no positive results for cocaine. Does this prove that he was not actually intoxicated by the cocaine at the time of the arrest?
