DOT Drug tests and psilocybin

Jeez LMAO. Clearly none of you have every taken shrooms...

First off Im clean as a whistle, not a thing in my **** or hair but **** and hair.

Second off..... No-one who has done or ever does shrooms would EVER drive their personal vehicle while on shrooms LET ALONE DRIVE A CMV... shrooms is something one would do in a safe space where they can meditate and do inward work. Unless of course one just wants to trip balls with friends.

Third... Shrooms and other psychedelics are very known to have some amazing benefits for those who use them responsibly. DO the research if you would light to not be ignorant.

The responses you guys offered were ridiculous. To assume that someone is asking this question so that they can drive a CMV while tripping is about as immature as it gets.

Thanks for nothing

DOT Drug Testing: Urinalysis or Hair Follicle?

Well thats insane. 9 months later?!?! Damn... I feel like you would have to be extremely unhealthy for your body not to be able to process that within so much time. But Im not a doctor... just trying to make sense of it.

I dont know where you guys are getting this info about year long detection... Im not saying youre wrong, but everything Ive seen online states that most substances are only detectable in your hair for 90 days and thats on multiple sites including gov/med sites as well

Only thing that Ive seen that can go that far back (2-5 years) is a spinal tap which supposedly can trace back your entirely life...

If you guys could share some resources stating that it is in fact years please share it.

We get our information from people that have done marijuana and get caught after doing a home test 9 months to a year later, when a company sends them off to have a hair follicle test done. It depends on a person's body fat, how often they used and how strong the weed is.

It's just not worth taking chances on if it's in your system or not. If it is you are pretty much in the driving world even if you go through the sap program. Companies don't want to take on somebody who has done drugs of any kind even marijuana.

Any car haulers with advice? Would like your words of wisdom!

So Im in CDL school right now... I was working for a car dealer in logistics and we were constantly recieving our new vehicles from haulers, whether a big company or hot shot drivers and I spent about 6 months picking their brains about what they do. I managed to develop a relationship with a few of them and they all work for the same company, whom I wont name because it seems noone else does it.

They all tell me that they absolutely love car hauling. They all told me its hard work, and that its not for everyone... but not to shy away from it if it interests me. They all tell me they make REALLY GOOD money on a regular basis and they are home every night for dinner with their families. Even being regional, Ive been shown pay statements making 2000 on the low end and as high as 3500 on the extreme high.... and thats PER WEEK. One of the drivers told me this. "Im 35, I make $160k a year car hauling and Im home daily with my family. I have a 500k home, and brand new truck, and I take 3 vacations a year with my family. I wouldnt trade this for anything." These companies pay well per mile, but they also offer pay for every vehicle you unload, and they give bonuses as well!

Im lined up to start with this company out of school because they hire new drivers. I was made aware that new drivers are given a smaller truck and dont make as much money at first. However, the people they've referred in the past have made 70/80k their first years because they take longer to load and unload as they are still learning. Thats still great money first year considering youre home every day 95% of the time.

Ill update you guys once I have my own experience, but as of now everyones stories add up and all match. Those drivers do say this... "Some drivers make 50k a year, some make 200k a year. Its all about how well of a system you create for yourself and how much hustle you got. Sometimes your dispatcher is connected to your success or lack there of as well. You wanna be lazy and go home after making $150 a day? Go ahead, they wont bother you but you wont make real money... but if you wake up early and put in the work to figure this out you can make a really great living while still being a dad and partner for your family." So Im in... whats the worst that can happen?

There are 2 kind of fear... the kind that protects you and the kind that holds you back.

NH won’t even let me test for my permit?!?!

***SITUATION UPDATE***

So I ruffled enough feathers in NH and finally last week they called me back and said that I could in fact test, as long as I can provide proof that the suspension was not related to a moving violation!!!

I ordered an official copy of my driving record and guess what…. The suspension isn’t even on my record.

I’m not going to question it, if the government issues doc states it isn’t there than it’s not there!

My best guess is that Florida suspends your license as to make you reinsure the vehicle but doesn’t stick it on your record. Either way… I test tomorrow morning! Thanks everyone who commented and offered their insight.

Im considering this as well. Right now Im figuring out of it will just be easier to change my residency to MA and go through a different state. MA asks if youre license is suspended etc. AT THIS TIME. And that answer is no so I don't think there will be any problems. Before I go transferring everything Im doing research and visiting DMVs to have questions answered. If it isn't the case then I might go this route as well. It just doesn't make sense to me that this type of suspension would disqualify me. That would mean that someone who's late $1 dollar on child support and gets their license suspended wouldn't qualify to apply for their CDL either and that's just insane.

All in all I do believe there is a way around this and Ill be past it soon God willing. I appreciate everyones responses.

I had a suspension in/from California on my California license due to medications causing seizures back in around 2013. Meds were changed and I didn't think anything of it. Apparently CA is a "Doctor is mandated to report seizures" type state.

Fast forward to 2014 and I'd moved back to NC and found out only when I went to change my CA license to NC. Tried to resolve over the phone and it seemed a bit of a hassle. I ended up contacting an attorney which then had me go to a general practitioner and a neurologist and both gave me a clean bill of health to include testing for epilepsy. They forwarded that CA DMV and did whatever else they did and got it resolved in maybe 2 months. Most of that 2 months was waiting for a neuro appointment so yours could be quicker.

Not sure what timeframe or budget you're looking at to resolve it but I went with an attorney to handle the legwork.

I actually had to dig up the documents as well as get a new "all clear" from a GP, above and beyond my med card, for a couple of prospective employers. Regardless of how you resolve it keep copies of any paperwork in case it's requested.

First of all, I think you can find a way to get this straightened out. No fun dealing with the government and can be extremely frustrating. Keep making those phone calls until you get someone with a brain to help you. (That might take a number of years, but don’t give up. Lol)

Second, how did you not know you needed insurance? That is motor vehicle 101. If you weren’t driving it you needed to inform your DMV and find out how to avoid the liability insurance requirement that I believe is nation wide. Well, live and learn.

Anyway, I’m confident you will solve this problem and move on to greater problems.

Tell me about it! How do you think I felt when I found this out lol. In NH you can have a registered vehicle without insurance if its off the road I believe, and being that Florida is well.... Florida I assumed the same there but that's the last time I assume anything.

But yes, I spent the whole day Friday calling the DMV speaking to supervisors and called every department in the the Department of Safety and ended up talking to a Staff Sergeant that opened up the law books with me on the phone. Nothing in the verbiage elaborates on whether suspensions related or not related to moving violations make a difference and from my perspective it seems like a grey area when it comes to this type of suspension.

In conclusion, I was given the Director if the NH DMVs address and will be petitioning him to help me resolve this situation by potentially waiving this requirement. Hopefully he's feeling helpful. Ive also been looking into surrounding states laws and I think I can make it happen faster in MA. So Im between those two decisions at the moment.

You said you fixed the problem by insuring your vehicle. What else did you do? Is there a process in NH for reinstating a suspended license?

Only guessing, it might still be suspended awaiting completion of some other process. I suggest calling NH DOT for further clarification.

Good luck.

As soon as I learned that my license was suspended I reinsured my car and took the proper docs to the FL DMV and reinstated my license. I don't have any current suspensions on my vehicle. But since it was within the past two years, they won't allow me to test up until this point. Thanks for your reply.

NH won’t even let me test for my permit?!?!

Hey guys, brand new here looking for help figuring this out.

I’ve been preparing and studying to get fly CDL. I had my permit exam appointment today and one of the questions on the application was this:

“Have you been disqualified from operating any motor vehicle within the past two years?”

I didn’t know how to answer because last year I had a suspension as a result not having insurance on a registered vehicle in the state of Florida. I honestly had no idea that there was a law prohibiting that. I figured as long as I’m not driving it, I’m not breaking any laws. Wrong…

As soon as I found out my license was suspended because of that I fixed the situation and insured my vehicle. All this being said previous to today’s situation I’ve called over 15 different training schools, and mentioned it to all of them just to be safe and asked if that would raise any issues and all of them said no if it wasn’t related to any moving violations you’ll be fine.

Upon bringing it up to the clerk she called her supervisor and their answer was that I couldn’t even TEST for my permit because of the suspension… so I’m very confused. I told them the circumstances surrounding the suspension and the fact that every school has responded the same. Didn’t matter.

Does anyone have any insight on this? I searched the violations that would “disqualify” someone from driving and that isn’t on the list. Everything on the list is all related to hazardous driving. So I’m at a loss of words here I have no idea if I’m going to have to wait another year and a half before being able to even go for this or if I can fight it.
