Don't get into trucking if you are into doing drugs. Find another career. This is one of two posts where you are resurrecting old threads to comment on something drug related. I don't want anyone out there driving a dangerous piece of machinery who is playing around with substances and trying to find loopholes. I feel pretty confident that other experienced drivers feel the same.

Just what you need hauling cars or any type of freight: hallucinations.

Are you asking in order to make sure you can pass your pre-hire drug screen? Or...Do you plan on continuing to partake if/when you become a professional driver? If so I hope you are responsible enough to never drive while under the influence of any substance that impairs your senses. That should be common sense. Although plenty of people lack that.

Pre-hire:

What Exactly Is A Pre-Hire Letter?

Pre-hire letters are acceptance letters from trucking companies to students, or even potential students, to verify placement. The trucking companies are saying in writing that the student, or potential student, appears to meet the company's minimum hiring requirements and is welcome to attend their orientation at the company’s expense once he or she graduates from truck driving school and has their CDL in hand.

We have an excellent article that will help you Understand The Pre-Hire Process.

A Pre-Hire Letter Is Not A Guarantee Of Employment

The people that receive a pre-hire letter are people who meet the company's minimum hiring requirements, but it is not an employment contract. It is an invitation to orientation, and the orientation itself is a prerequisite to employment.

During the orientation you will get a physical, drug screen, and background check done. These and other qualifications must be met before someone in orientation is officially hired.

Jeez LMAO. Clearly none of you have every taken shrooms...

First off Im clean as a whistle, not a thing in my **** or hair but **** and hair.

Second off..... No-one who has done or ever does shrooms would EVER drive their personal vehicle while on shrooms LET ALONE DRIVE A CMV... shrooms is something one would do in a safe space where they can meditate and do inward work. Unless of course one just wants to trip balls with friends.

Third... Shrooms and other psychedelics are very known to have some amazing benefits for those who use them responsibly. DO the research if you would light to not be ignorant.

The responses you guys offered were ridiculous. To assume that someone is asking this question so that they can drive a CMV while tripping is about as immature as it gets.

Thanks for nothing

CMV:

Commercial Motor Vehicle

A CMV is a vehicle that is used as part of a business, is involved in interstate commerce, and may fit any of these descriptions:

  • Weighs 10,001 pounds or more
  • Has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross combination weight rating of 10,001 pounds or more
  • Is designed or used to transport 16 or more passengers (including the driver) not for compensation
  • Is designed or used to transport 9 or more passengers (including the driver) for compensation
  • Is transporting hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placards

HOS:

Hours Of Service

I appreciate your attitude in response to my question. I am clean and intend on staying that way. Im more so just curious about what the answer is. I don't partake in anything more than coffee and the occasional glass of wine with my pasta.

Again, I tip my hat to you for not coming into this threat on a high horse. Thank you
