What about that CBD stuff that is so popular now? Is that red-flagged for drivers also?

As I understand it, even the CBD oil has trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana. No way would I risk it as a driver.

Turtle, I hope others chime in to bolster your comment. I see these CBD stores popping up all over the place and drivers need to be aware of the danger.

We had a woman come in here not that long ago who used a sulplement with a hemp seed oil in it. She used it for restless leg syndrome. Although the bottle said rhe concentration was lower than the test would trace, she got popped for a dirty urine teat and sent home.

And start checking your beer ingredients if you're having a few on a 34 or at home. San Diego has a company that brewed a THC containing beer that will certainly flag your next test if the bartender or server forgets to mention the contents. There are also several CBD containing beers now.

Weed is legal in Canada but you still can't get smoke if you drive a commercial vehicle.

Pretty easy to understand you can buy it you can have it delivered right to your door and you can even grow it but no you cannot smoke if your a professional driver. And the USA is way more strict with its laws so if Canada says no then good luck with the USA saying yes.

Someone tried playing that discrimination / human right violation %##$ card and it got tossed out up here.

So legal yes but not if you drive.

So, DP, not very bright are you? You answer all of your questions and complaints in your own post! You know it's not allowed but still show up to a trucking company then want to play the discrimination card? You know what? Oxycodone, alcohol and ambien for instance are federally legal but you can't drive while using them either. Dont hear anyone crying about not being able to support their family over it. Why did you not just wait until it was out of your system? Your post reminds me of those that I see fairly often where they borrowed a couple opiates from a friend because their back hurt or took a couple pills from a family member that showed up on a drug test. Guess what? Yes the rules apply to you as well! You need to take responsibility for your actions instead of crying over their discriminating and poor treatment of you for something you did to yourself. You would be surprised how much manning up instead of whining and complaining will improve your quality of life, might even lift you up enough to be able to support your family.

You gotta admit that Rainy is almost always entertaining, besides being very knowledgeable.

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.
