    Took a break from trucking into another field. Where you do not get tested. Got laid off now going back into trucking. Thats why. Only took a few hits now and then. But has been a few months. Do not want to ruin my career

    A standard hair follicle test will cover 30-90 days better wait a while to be on the safe side. Or wax your entire body and roll with it.:biggrin_25524:

    Why are you so worried about it?

    Did you just burn a fattie?

    "No sir, I don't smoke illegal drugs. I was in a room with a bunch of people who were smoking big fat blounts" Must be second hand smoke.

    Just trying to get a honest answer. Has been 4 months and was out of the idustry when I burned one. Heard they can go back 6 months or more. Do not want to waste my time or theirs.
     
    mje Thanks this.

    They don't go back that far and are usually reserved for more serious circumstances ie. court cases, contesting a urinalysis, etc. not so much for pre-hires. I can't promise they don't use hair testing for pre-hire but I can promise they won't go back six months. Perhaps one of our resident medical professionals will concur.
     
    mje Thanks this.
