Looking to get started!

There was a small bit of use in the beginning out of curiosity and not knowing any better. It turned out it really wasn't my thing, so I dropped it back then but didn't cancel the card until last month.

The standard DOT physical preforms hair follicle? I could've sworn I read somewhere they do urine only. At least for people who get the physical for the permit without a company involved.

Was hoping to pass the physical and spend my time preparing the permit and endorsments.

Looking to get started!

Hi everyone, I've been reading up here for a little while here and taking the high road tests, I'm hoping to barrow a little expertise here for this situation before I make any moves.

I'm about to go for my permit but my state PA requires the DOT physical first.

Before I attend this physical I need to disclose that I was a PA MMJ card holder for part of 2022. I got it as a legal protection when my wife with anxiety went to get hers. (The doc said there could be problems for me without one if we ever had police contact and she was carrying the stuff.)

Finding out that holding that card barred me from any CDL work down the road.. I canceled the card with the state.

I also verified with that all records were deleted along with contacting the issuing physician and asking that my file be deleted (which they agreed).

I'm a bit concerned going for the physical or Pennot for the permit because I don't want them to be able to see I held one and somehow bar me for life or worse report to a higher agency of some kind.

Maybe I'm airing on the side of caution here but I've read a couple horror stories of those who couldn't get their CDL for similar situations.

Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
