I know there is a list on this topic, but it isnt very a very good thread with the information im looking for. Im not going to admit to anything, but i might of smoked sep 14th 15th and 16th during the florida hurricane one hit each each time. Before that its been atleast 6 months. Before that another 6 months, then before that another 6. I used to smoke alot when i was in my teens and early twenties. I tried in my early teens to stay away from it but i failed..everyone does it here, where im at. I managed to rid myself of all sources of it. I even stoped talking to majority of my family. I want nothing to do with it. The reason why i did it in sep was because the people i was renting a room from had some. Yeah its my fault but thats why i moved out after the hurricane. I want nothing to do with it. I joined crst a year and a half ago. After i graduated, during the orientation, i wrote down i failed a pre employment drug test(non dot , for a construction company) when i was 18. So then the day we were exposed to get hired on and get our lisence, i was dropped. I walked a mile back to the hotel, packed my stuff, took a 400$ uber back home. Got a job back in construction. Figured trucking was not ment to be, so i tryed to give construction one more shot. I even went out and got a nice car to try to get into it more. And spent over 1 grand on tools in just over a year too. But i dont want to do this. Maybe all i want is some advise. I found alot of good companies, but they do hair tests too and i dont want to *** this up. I want to start in new years if possible.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Then quit smoking weed. Hate to state the obvious.

Cannot help you with a company that will not test you, but you should wait a little longer. Even if you get by at orientation there will likely be a lot of random tests especially in your first year.

Wait until the next opportunity comes around for you to smoke, if you are able to pass up the weed then you will know that you will be able to keep clean after you are driving a truck.

It's definitely better to play it safe. If you fail a DOT drug test it'll be a nightmare trying to get another opportunity for a long time.
