    Just a heads up for drivers. We had two people removed from service for taking CDB oil. After the fact had this posted on our locals FB page

    I wouldn't take it. But our local got a driver his job back after he provided detailed records and receipts of cbd oil purchase.

    They should get their jobs back, but I just put that out there to save people the headache of going through the process and losing money

    The DOT exam is not a drug test. At least where I live. It specifically says “DO NOT DRUG TEST” on the top of the paper we give the Dr.

    Wasn’t CBD approved by fda last year?

    Doesn't matter for commercial drivers.

    The OP said it’s not fda approved. Cbd has no mind altering effects. Seems pretty easy to dispute.

    Doesn't matter. Still illegal federally and for commercial drivers. Whether your opinion says otherwise doesn't trump the law.

    Wasn’t my opinion. I speak of experience.

    That doesn't make any sense.

    The driver gets popped on a random, and gets put back to work because he has

    detailed receipts ? He had to at least see a SAP and get evaluated.

    The prevailing thought is if you have a CDL it is a risk.

    The DOT exams confuse some doctors. No drug test for package drivers but they do check feeder drivers (with CDL).

    Package drivers ARE subject to being tested if there is cause.

    The people I know that have taken it say it makes them tired and a little foggy brained.
