Thanks T.M. Sometimes it is easier for humans to try to justify our actions, rather than own them. We have all been guilty of it, I certainly have been in my 59 years on this planet. Just a bit of info on the hair follicle test. I was prescribed hydrocodone from May thru August of 2018. I took a hair follicle test in January of this year for Swift Transportation. I had not taken any for 4 months, and was only taking 3 or 4 per week for at least 2 months prior to the test. I tested POSITIVE! I had all of the documentation from the prescribing doctor, so all was well. Although it did hold me up for 2 additional days after orientation. Got my 1st solo dispatch after a 50 hour refresher course. Logged on duty, did my pre trip and loaded call. I was at the Phoenix Terminal. BOOM.....phone call from safety to do a random drop on the spot. It came up clean and I was on my way. These companies do not F around with this stuff. It is serious business. I would recommend staying completely clean for AT LEAST 6 mos. from all drugs including alcohol. 1 year would be a safer bet. One failed or refused test will kill your career. Good luck to you!

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

for at least 2 months prior to the test.

CORRECTION: 2 months prior to THE END OF AUGUST

So over 4 months since I had injested ANY hydrocodone.

Got here late and missed this Troll. Truly hope this idiot isn’t on the roads driving anything anytime soon.

Pack Rat, To be fair to T.M. he redeemed himself in his last 3 posts. He was sincere in his apology. TT has succeeded in reforming another negative Trucker. We'll take em' one at a time.

Well I am not here to judge others but to learn from others and have the upper hand when I start driving. I will say, if TM is a chronic user it will take a weebit longer to pee clean than a month or two.
