Be careful if your summering in-house at a Fortune 500ish company, you may be provided with notice of a drug test shortly before the summer starts (HR at these places are big/slow & may not warn you beforehand). If this worries you, the best move would be to call HR yourself and ask if there are any additional steps you need to complete before your start-date (a white lie about a vacation/wedding the week before should suffice). This happened to me and caused unnecessary levels of stress during finals.
As others have stated big firms generally don't test, but you might want to hedge your bets and at least refrain from partaking multiple times a week for the next month or so. That will make it much easier to get out of your system in a hurry if necessary.
Take this advice with a grain of salt. its fine to make generalizations, but firms don't publish their drug testing policies, so unless you ask the recruiter (dont do that, obvs) then you really are rolling the dice. And not just with this job, but your whole career.
And if you cant stop smoking for three-four months, then you are an addict and are unfit to be a lawyer until you get clean.
