I feel like this is a troll. If not, you need to take a few steps back and evaluate. Instead of trying to get a lawyer to beat the consequences or whatever, you need to look at yourself and see why your judgment is so out of whack that you ever thought it was ok to smoke weed in a truck.

If this is even a true story I find it difficult to believe that the Highway personnel gave the stuff back to him driving a Commercial vehicle. He will no longer have a job after this in my opinion and the DOT does not have any Tolerance whatsoever for any illegal drugs at all in one's possession. Why would anyone bother doing that crap and try to be a driver. We are all better off with him off the road honestly.

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.

Well, we'll see if he responds. There's no sense in 1,000 people saying, "Drugs are bad" a 1,000 times. Let's see if he responds.

Good morning, I think I realize how stupid that was. I am not joking about them giving it back. I'm getting a lawer to fight it I totally screwed up. I'm 35 never been in any trouble. I never got a personal ticket during that event there just a driver vehicle examination report. That needs to get signed by boss And send back no fines lawer say 50 percent chance he might be able to get reduced to something should have got arrested. If u guys just gonna call me stupid and all that other negative stuff don't reply I'm asking for advice. I realize I screwed up don't need to be told that I'm am defiantly done with pot after this.. gonna be a lot of random drug testing at the company i gotra do pti hit the road

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

If u guys play nice I'll tell u how it ends. if we get a bunch of clean inspection it will balance the safty score. Safe journeys God bless.

Oleg, you are keeping me confused. You say you...

never got a personal ticket during that event there just a driver vehicle examination report.

Then you say...

lawer say 50 percent chance he might be able to get reduced

What in the world is the lawyer fighting if there was no ticket?

You can't fight a vehicle inspection report.

What was the stated reason on that report for being put out of service?

They gave me a driver vehicle examination report only. What i got is cup code 392.4a-pos it says " driver on duty and in possession of narcotic drug. Driver presented a zip lock baggie with a marijuana from dash and pipe from pocket" it's the sheet that the boss has to sign with in 15 days. I did not think u could fight those but lawer say u can we gotta bring it to court. Pretty much i think i'm at the mercy of the DEA. It was not much in the bag at all but it was there.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
