    I used to think that too, that it was not physically addictive, only psychologically addictive. But then I learned that heavy cannabis users experience withdrawals when they quit, so that makes me think there must be a physical component to it as well.

    A person can become dependant on any foreign substance. Take laxatives too frequently and your body "forgets" how to poop. Some substances have greater risks, I'd love to have more longitudinal studies on pot usage, but until the last decade, getting funding and recruiting a cohort was problematic.

    They put legal here in canada, our company has strongly advised against using them as they may cause a fail on a drug test. As has been said many times, no guarantee on the level between products.

    You have to be more vigilant than ever before right now with regards to marijuana. It is literally everywhere and I mean everywhere. Everybody and their cousins dog are using it and using it in multiple forms including oils, drops, vaping, smoking, edibles, it’s literally everywhere and can be slipped to you with the greatest of ease without your knowledge. Hence, ending your trucking career. I personally don’t like weed, would never smoke it or ingest it, but if they’re still going to continue to make this a disqualifying drug, then they really need to rethink how they evaluate it.

    They put this stuff in massage oils and everything else now. It’s gotten absolutely ridiculous. Be careful out there because it can cost you your entire trucking career.

    I've had to turn around and come home to grab my phone.

    I'd leave it but the boss panics when he doesn't know where your at as we reported after every load what the level was.

    Plus. You're always breaking down.

    I no longer work there so I could leave it home now. Sort of. Still gotta worry about breakdown. Which don't happen much now.
     
    Numb Thanks this.

    Daughter's puppy was acting real funny, went to vet who said he's stoned. He must have snarfed up a roach while being walked in their townhouse complex.

    It is everywhere.
