So... My kids have graduated and I finally have the family support to fulfill my lifelong dream of becoming a truck driver. I have no huge concerns about the lifestyle or the job itself. long story short, a few weeks ago, my wife decided to start smoking pot. Good for her. Its legal. I have no interest but all for her enjoying. She had no idea how to do it. I showed her how to load a pipe (expierienced from younger days) and took a hit. As remembered, all i wanted was a twinkie and a nap. So now i am ready to start applying to trucking companies. I guess im asking if i should wait a little while before jumping in due to follicle testing? I have an ok job. I dont want to risk my future but am really anxious to get started. Any advise?

To be safe, wait awhile. You jump in too soon you’ll be done before you get started.

Hair test? At least 90 days. If you exposed to secondary smoke everyday, it’s possible you’ll never be clean.

Pot and truck driving… they do not mix.

Arnold, wow. You have a lifelong dream to be a truck driver. You obviously know about hair follicle testing and that traces of pot can’t show up in the test. What were you thinking? Does your wife support your ambition to drive? It’s like you have a dream but your connection to pot is pulling you in the opposite direction. You and your wife have a decision to make between pot and driving. G-Town’s comment is 100% accurate.

Arnold, StevoReno, much beloved, is in the early stages of retirement, and ... probably 'imbibing' (himself) in the Phillipines, ... sorry, Stevo!! LuvYa! Maybe maybe not...is it legal there?!??

Not to HiJack, Arnold...but....

I've got to ask.. why would you go to a 'PROCTOR' for a drug test? I'm being honestly serious... a proctologist doctor does drug tests, nowadays? Sheesh...and I'm just getting ready to get MYSELF into driving/testing! Auuughh! I'm hoping (a.) that was a typo, and (b.) you'll stop back.

While you are waiting out the 90 days, why not better prepare?!?!?

ps: Arnold . . . if you'd please add AT LEAST your state of residence, it could help us (and those!) that know more, help YOU more!!!! For instance (and not that it matters...) is CBD or THC even LEGAL in your state ?!? More info helps.. us.. help.. others.

Seriously, wishing you the best.

pps: Anyone good on the TT GPS? All I see are lakes, mausoleums, cemetaries, campsites, and mountains. Ask Ms. Laura. Mostly lakes, rivers, and ponds. Showed Brett at a lake in NJ, and then at St. John's in Manhattan, today. I've got an old(er) browser, methinks!

You need to crack open a dictionary once in awhile. A proctor has nothing to do with being a doctor of any kind

From dictionary.com:

noun

1. a person appointed to keep watch over students at examinations.

2. an official charged with various duties, especially with the maintenance of good order.

verb

(used with or without object) to supervise or monitor.

You need to re-read the dictionary you asked me to send YOU, haha!! Urban, of course... ;)

The one you didn't read, and the acronyms you never get.. A "Procter" since 2019 is not just "half of a Gamble" 😅..

I KNEW the literal sense, was beating BK to the punchline, for once!! Doubting the O/P shows up, just saw the irony....fitting, let's say !

(Tom's FedMed doc told us THAT ONE !!!! 😂)

Did u find out why the GPS is off😰BTW? Just here in Ohio, I'm guessing!!

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.
