I have a newly constructed bathroom with a sink stub out drain protruding approx. 7 inches from the wall at an angle which interferes with the vanity drawer operation. Cutting the stub out shorter will not solve the problem. However a 45 degree elbow attached at the stub out, turning away from the drawer should work. Does this weaken the drainage capability of the connection? Is this allowed code wise? Will this pass inspection? HELP!!!!

Yes you can offset it with (2) 45*s and will not have a problem. Cut the stub out pipe shorter (just enough for you to get a fitting on) You may need a short piece of pipe after the fitting to compensate for the tubular diameter of the trap. There is a slip joint double offset made just for this type of situation, Good Luck.
