    A few questions:

    1. Do all Hazmat truck drivers need to be able to pass a hair follicle drug test?
    2. If so, how far back do they test the hair samples for THC?

    I’ve heard that you need to be clean for 6 months. Any thoughts?

    Thank you

    Hair testing is not required for haz. Only a few companies actually use it

    At present, hair testing is not recognized by the FMCSA as a valid drug test

    1. No, thats up to the company
    2. 3 months at least. If youre black itll go back longer since the hair grows slower from what ive read
