DER TRAINING COURSE - FMCSA
Your fleet supervisor calls in to ask for your advice. He tells you that one of your drivers admitted to smoking marijuana on his route through Colorado where the state has legalized recreational cannabis. What do you tell him? Would you know where to find the answer if you didn’t know?
Would it matter if the driver was on vacation or off the clock?
Would it matter if the driver had admitted to using cannabis after being called in for a drug test?
Would it matter if the driver had been in a fatal accident first?
