Marijuana Still Not Allowed For Truck Drivers

The DOT has announced that marijuana is still not allowed for truck drivers and others in safety-sensitive positions.  This is not a surprise, but the DOT felt that it was important to reinforce the message in light of recent state-level marijuana legalization efforts.

Just as alcohol is legal, those in trucking, bus driving, and commercial driving know that consuming alcohol will get you a DWI or DUI arrest.  Even in states that have legal marijuana, driving high will get you in trouble with the authorities, and DOT testing will continue to test for marijuana.
