T.M. shovels more dirt out of the hole he dug for himself...

I'm willing to bet that none of you have ever smoked pot. it's not like your on heroin. In fact I've been on the stuff for 14 years , about 95% of the time under the influence behind the wheel, and I've never been involved in an accident. I've drove at night , in the rain, through the fog ,up and down hills. Learned to drive a 13 speed in 1 hour by myself with no training and my record and performance is flawless. I will say this, I agree driving and drugs don't mix. If I waited 6 months and fired up 2 hits, I would be wrecked. Your body builds a tolerance. A couple Toke's for me barely did anything to me. Not like a pothead smoking a whole joint and getting stoned. Can any drivers that smoked or smokes chime in here.

I am willing to bet NONE of the professionals or students on this forum would "smoke-it-up" while operating a CMV.

You are an absolute disgrace to truck driving and the very reason society loathes the slobs you represent. Literally and figuratively; you should "quit" while you're ahead and expect to get nothing but ridicule if you persist.

CMV:

Commercial Motor Vehicle

A CMV is a vehicle that is used as part of a business, is involved in interstate commerce, and may fit any of these descriptions:

  • Weighs 10,001 pounds or more
  • Has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross combination weight rating of 10,001 pounds or more
  • Is designed or used to transport 16 or more passengers (including the driver) not for compensation
  • Is designed or used to transport 9 or more passengers (including the driver) for compensation
  • Is transporting hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placards

You proved my point. If I knew your real name and state you lived in, I would send them your statement in hopes they would revoke your driving privileges.

Not one of you said, that's good you stopped smoking. Ive had more pot than ever put in front of me since I stopped smoking and haven't even looked at it. I could go fake the test , but I went the right route this time. Yous call me all kinds of names and offer no support to better myself since I've stated my good intentions from this point on. I'm confindent I'm one of the safer drivers on the road. I know you will all disagree, but my record shows it. And under the influence. You call it lucky,but after nearly half a million miles with no truck schooling, it's pure skill. Anyways I've cleaned up and admit I've took risks, so guys I'm not gonna say anything bad about your point of views and concerns. A little support in my new found ways will be appreciated.

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.

I still possess a CDL never been revoked. As of right now I can pass a d.o.t drug test. I just wanted to know about company policy if anyone knew. Hair fg follicle tests are not dot approved as of yet, so at this moment in time I am in the right to get back behind the wheel. I always drive the speed limit and get loads to destination on time. I just wanna keep trucking.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

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.

G town, your putting words in my mouth ...am willing to bet NONE of the professionals or students on this forum would "smoke-it-up" while operating a CMV. I didn't say that, I asked if any of yous ever smoked pot, I did not imply if you've smoked and then drove. I'm just curious how many of you criticize and have never even tried it.

T.M. I commend you for giving up pot, but it is your judgment TODAY on this forum that justifies the reaction you received. You didn't say "I turned the page and gave it up." You bragged about driving under the influence of pot and said

It didn't affect my driving, in fact I drove better

That statement shows you don't consider smoking pot and driving a truck dangerous. Just the opposite. You think it made you a better driver. That scientifically disputed statement shows that you lack the judgement to drive a CMV.

It didn't affect my driving, in fact I drove better, however I didn't get stoned, just a couple puffs in the loading dock to relax.

Me too. I drive much better after 8 or 10 gin and tonics, not drunk, just a nice little buzz.

Do you realize how stupid it is to post this kind of information on social media?

If you ever do have an accident, and someone gets hurt or killed, the prosecutor who can trace this back to you will see that you never get out of prison.

SMH! confused.gifgood-luck.gif

I wasn't putting anything in your mouth.

I answered your stupid question with a highly relevant one... pointing out you are not in the same league as the people that regularly contribute to this forum.
