    Will I be drug tested if I got a hernia because of work? I gotta go to the clinic today and was wondering because I do smoke weed regularly

    Kind of late to worry about it now. Are you a driver?

    I doubt you have anything to worry about. From what I understand if you are a loader and show up for work regularly you can get away with anything short of being an ax murderer. (even that won't disqualify you during peak).

    Who gives a crap what he is looking for?

    He needs to stay off drugs if he is going to continue to work for UPS.

    I'm all for the legalization of weed. However it's still :censored2:ing illegal.

    If you're fine working part time at ups or Micky d the rest of your life go ahead. If not learn to do without.

    Maybe. It probably depends on the worker's compensation laws in your state.

    I suggest you call your union business agent (or an experienced shop steward) immediately!

    You got a hernia at work. To deal with pain you smoke weed regularly.

    If they force you to see the company doctor? Doctors are either Board Cerified and Board Eligible? What kind of doctor you want checking out injury. Specially a injury close to your testes.

    Call your state medical vocational licensing division, see if that doctor license is current and if any previous medical malpractice complaints happened in the past. You might get some interesting answers.

    You might be onto something there. I wonder if the OP lives in a legalized medical marijuana state. He could get a prescription.

    You could probably get a prescription now if your state allows it.

    Never go to a UPS doctor, especially when a workers' comp claim is the next step.
