It’s three months not years. 😃

Swift told me there hair follicle test goes back 3 years. Is this true? Also was going to buy a hair confirm test at CVS . Are they as accurate as the one Swift does?

I would not bet a potential career on that.

Drugs And Commercial Motor Vehicles DO NOT MIX!

I 100% agree with this.

It’s not about being clean for 3 months; it’s about staying clean well beyond that if truck driving is the career you want. A lifestyle adjustment, that for some might be significant.

To be blunt; I don’t want to be driving next to a truck with an operator who blew a joint hours before.

No tolerance.

Commercial Motor Vehicle:

A commercial motor vehicle is any vehicle used in commerce to transport passengers or property with either:

  • A gross vehicle weight rating of 26,001 pounds or more
  • A gross combination weight rating of 26,001 pounds or more which includes a towed unit with a gross vehicle weight rating of more than 10,000 pounds

I was at a Corcle K in Kittery ME. Walked out the back on the way to my truck and walked past a moving truck (household goods) and the 4 guys in it were smoking up a storm. I walked through a cloud so dense I hope I don’t take a drug test any time soon.

Called local police and they couldn’t have cared less. Said they weren’t sure it was illegal since weed is legal there. I assured them it was illegal to get high and drove a 40,000 pound plus truck through traffic. State Police did care but doubtful they could spot them as I didn’t know which way they went.

Or one that spends their 10, sitting in a truckstop swilling beers. One has to realize that substance abuse includes alcohol - and just because it's legal - doesn't mean that drivers aren't impaired, even hours after their last one. Save it for the first 24 of your 34 - or home time. If you can't wait for the appropriate time to imbibe - then you're as bad as the dopers. There's a difference between "self control" & "addiction" - most folks don't see it, until they're over the line already.
