    I recently and naively started using CBD Oil. I’ve taken just under 2 Months. I was Terminated today from a Dump Truck Driving Job. Last Monday I was involved in a Accident that had a Fatality. I was cleared from the Camera in my Truck and another Driver in Car was Charged. I took the Required Drug Test w out any worries but was told of the results today and Terminated. I only beleived it was OK since CBD is practically sold everywhere now. Can someone suggest action I should take to get job back or is there a loophole in the system? My Employer beleived me but they say it’s not FDA Regulated (Approved). Is there any steps to take to beat this or am I SOL? Thanks. I’m not usually Naive but this got me as I had never heard of THC either and I’m 54

    Don't worry about getting a new driving job because one of two things or both will happen.
    1. You will be spending the next few years behind bars.
    2. You will loose everything you own and owe several million dollars from a civil suit.

    Doesn't matter who was at fault either because you should have never been there to begin with.

    You'll have to complete the SAP program, then after that, start looking for a company that will hire a SAP graduate. The company that fired you should have directed you to an accredited program.
    @Moose1958 may have some info. for you on that.

    CBD oil causes no impairment. You’re getting screwed because the system is messed up. Good luck

    You might want to check ingredients on your CBD,,,I have some that is CBD 30MG/ML THC 1.39 MG/ML....The THC is so low the whole bottle would not get a fly high but enough to ruin your life in USA

    Sigh,,,America, where only this could even be discussed in a rational manner. Anywhere else, like Peru, you'd be in one of the urine soaked heck holes, but in America, got to be a way out of this. And these G-D lawyers, find a way. This is a clear case, of "not me", looking for a loophole,,,America!!! Sorry, but if you don't even get off on that crap, why would you risk everything for it.
