Medical Marijuana News

BY IN health & wellness On 28-07-2015

According to the Department of Transportation’s Drug and Alcohol Testing Regulation – 49 CFR Part 40, at 40.151(e) – does not authorize “medical marijuana” under a state law to be a valid medical explanation for a transportation employee’s positive drug test result.

This comes into direct conflict with states where medical marijuana has been legalized.

The DOT’s position is firm. In essence, if you test positive for marijuana, heroin or any other Class I substance, the driver cannot be certified. This also true for occupations such as airplane pilots, school bus drivers, truck drivers, train engineers, subway operators, aircraft maintenance personnel, armed security personnel, and ship captains.
