    It may be rural, but that is the city of Moline. I loaded in another rural part of Quad Cities in Davenport.

    Hahaha, I'm game to twisted humor.

    I have some opinions of my own about what happened.

    What I get tired of is the blatant MAGA leaning types claiming everything is worse off because of others (and rarely look in the mirror)

    I actually offloaded nearby in Milan at a beer distribution warehouse-not too far from the west end of the main runway at Quad City Airport.

    This thread is one reason I cringe when our forum has a new member asking if a company does certain kind of drug testing.

    Not me.
    Pot is legal in a lot of places and if someone decides to get their CDL and they go 2 months without using before applying.
    It’s good to know whether they’ll get a hair test.
    And then they can wait longer to get their CDL or apply at a place that just does the urine test.

    I don't care if its legal or not. We don't need people stoned out of their minds trying to drive 80000lb behemoths.

    I'd rather share the road with a "stoned" driver that's paying attention over some guy watching YouTube or taking some dumb Facebook survey.

    It’s a moot point when most of these companies do RANDOM testing,meaning they can call you in at ANY time for a drug screen. When I was at Western Express not including the pre employment drug screen I was called 3 times in less than 9 months. In the almost 2 1/2 years I’ve been with Marten not including the pre employment drug screen I’ve only been called 2 times,and one of those times was because of a non-preventable accident I was involved in(SOP after a CMV accident). A lot of these new drivers don’t understand that just because marijuana is legal on a state level doesn’t mean you can drive a CMV and smoke on a FEDERAL level (which overrules ANY state or local laws in the books).
    Like it or not,the Feds say you get caught with pot in your system,you’re gonna pay the price.
