There have been many tictoc lives where drivers will open a beer inside there truck. Company or owner opp you are firting with KOOSHING your way out of a CDL.

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.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

So no Tylenol and driving? Or just no intoxicating drugs? CBD with no THC has no intoxication at all so aside from contamination, which is entirely possible, it would be no different than Tylenol (which actually functions via the endocannabinoid system that CBD and THC use)

Anybody that ignorant or just plain stupid has no place behind the wheel. New driver, experienced driver or anything between: Drugs and driving never go together. Ever.

I don't care what you consume, Travis, legal or not declared legal. Tylenol contains no banned ingredients, whereas many of the CDB products do. You can lol all you want. Banned substances and drug use is a serious epidemic in this country. I figured you should know this since much comes across the border from Mexico. That's a lol for you also I'm sure. I'm not impressed with your large words or weak arguments. Get your own CDL and some experience, then you'll have something to base your worldly opinions concerning trucking.

Ahhhhh the CBD conversation. Packrat is correct that many of the CBD products on the market do contain trace amounts of thc which can be picked up on some drug tests if they exceed the legal cutoff for CBD products. There are a couple versions which contain no thc but the majority of people do not search them out and generally don’t want to pay the extra money for it.

Personally I back cbd and even thc to help w certain ailments etc. However, if the product can impair ones ability to properly operate machinery, car, big truck, f$&&ing chain saw, dont use it. And it defnitely does not belong in trucking. Even if "pot, weed, marijuana" were to be made legal one should not be allowed behind wheel of commercial vehicle under the influence. I myself stopped driving a time or two because I drank too much coffee and/or red bulls. 80,000 lbs people. Clear head. Clear mind. Hammer down. God bless!

This was more my point in responding about Tylenol and PackRat's comment. For me it isn't so much the "drug" classification but more "intoxicant" and also "how addictive" something is.

For example: if I were to put in a massive chaw of tobacco I'd probably be more intoxicated and less fit to drive than if I was at 0.04 BAC. I'd be sweaty, shaky, probably vomiting uncontrollably.

The addiction aspect is also important. Even if someone never actually uses while driving but their addictive behaviors can lead to lifestyle changes that may affect their driving or personality and lead to destructive behavior.

I'm just not happy with the US' drug laws.I definitely don't want rampant and open drug use a la California and the Pac NW but our current strategies are also failed. Again, 0 tolerance for use of any intoxicant while operating and even a safety buffer of time to sober up and get any hangover effecte gone IMO.

So than obviously this driver didn’t just take the basic form of cbd with no thc. If he did nobody would care because he wouldn’t of popped on the drug test. He consumed thc. Whether knowingly or not is irrelevant. Can’t blame the fmcsa for having the stance that they do if a driver can’t even differentiate whether the cbd product is going to have thc or not. Taking cbd for a tooth ache is not smart at all especially when you have a drug test coming. Take a Benadryl.

So i went back to freymiller last week. One of the drivers in class with me was planning on teaming with his wife after she got off her trainers truck. Well his drug did not come in when the rest of ours did. He admitted he took cbd for a tooth ache. Found out to he failed the oral drug test. This is going to be on his clearing house for a good while.

This is a case where some small government regulation might help. Require all CBD to meet certain FDA standards of THC. Make it well below what even massive intakes of CDB products would make someone test positive. The current hodgepodge of state laws and allowed THC % is a mess.

I'm not saying force States to legalize CBD just require a very very tiny THC % if the State does legalize CBD.

Problem is though most of the larger carriers like Freymiller will keep a zero tolerance stance on it regardless of what regulations come. So you are trusting your career that where ever you decide to buy this cbd you are trusting that it will not have enough to cause you to pop on a drug test. And if you do as most of us know your career is in the tank. It’s playing with fire.

Oh yea, not worth the risk. I even got pickier with supplement companies once I decided to start CDL school.

Damn sad state of affairs. Sadly, it IS confusing to some.

My fam damily won't even BUY (let alone eat) ANY gummy anythings anymore!

Gummie Recall Alerts

Good to see you back around, GA Mike!!! Hope Freymiller works out for ya, this time.

Don't be a stranger....!

~ Anne ~

OMGosh. My sister sent me gummy vitamins cause she thinks I am going to get Covid since I'm around so many people all the time. I never liked gummies, but those vitamins tasted good. So, I recently became a gummy addict. Luckily, I'm cheap and bought the store brand, but that notice just ended my short term gummy addiction.

WTH is going on in this world anymore?
