Despite state measures to legalize both the recreation and medical uses of marijuana, the Department of Transportation said this week that truck drivers and other occupations regulated by DOT law are still prohibited from using marijuana for any purpose. 

The DOT’s Director of the Office of Drug and Alcohol Policy Compliance Jim Swart said in an announcement Monday, Dec. 3, that the Department will still be test as it usually does and that tests will not be deemed negative even if drivers used marijuana in a state where it’s legal for recreational use or in a state in which it’s legal for medical purposes.
