Does UPS drug test?

I recently applied for a PT seasonal driver helper and did orientation just a couple of days ago. But think back in it, I don't believe they talked about drug testing. Now if it someone who is applying for a driver position, I am going to assume that they obviously drug test those guys since they are the ones who are actually behind the wheel. But I am asking because I do occasionally partake in cannabis to help me sleep better (fyi I do live in a state where weed is legal for both recreational and medicinal use). I often wake up in the middle of the night to either go to the bathroom or to get a glass of water. But it almost always takes me anywhere between 2-4 hours to get back to sleep which is no bueno if I have to be up early in the morning. So when I smoke before I go to bed it helps me stay asleep throughout the night. But I only smoke maybe once a week so I don't develop a tolerance for it. But if I'm going to be getting drug tested, then that means that I'm probably going to have to stop full-time. I haven't done anything for about a week now. I'm not asking to get judged here, I'm merely asking to be informed.

A lot of part-timers at UPS test drugs daily.

Serious answer is that you'll only be tested if you're hurt on the job or involved in an accident. The way weed stays in your system I would recommend that you stop smoking regularly if you want to be a driver.

I agree but will add that if more than one supervisor suspects that you have been smoking weed, (ie if you smell like weed, red eyes, acting high), they can drug test you.

IMO there are other, better ways to help you go to sleep that don’t put your job at risk.

Like copious amounts of alcohol?

Way back in the 1980's, when I was hired, they did a full background check of past criminal offenses and required 3 references from past employers.
Luckily, in 1971, I was not sentenced to 20yrs in Huntsville , Tx State Prison for possession.
I am no Saint.
In the late 60's into the early 70's I did, and pushed, every available "street" drug.
Reality set in when all my "OG's" died, for various reasons, and I changed my ways.
UPS only drug tested if you were involved in an accident.
There are other legal sleep aids out there, and they are cheaper and more effective.
Do drugs at your own leisure, but do not use your behavior to put others in jeopardy.
I may be too honest on an open forum, but I have seen first hand how people use and get used by drugs to "feel" better.
Not to be a hypocrite, I still drink beer at home.
