DOT Regulations & Medical Marijuana
If an employee tests positive on a DOT Drug Test per DOT Regulations they must be removed from their safety sensitive position, referred to a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) and must completed the Return-to-Duty process before being able to return to work. The employee must also follow the SAP’s Drug &/or Alcohol Follow-Up program after returning to work.
The process would be the same even if a state allows the use of Medical Marijuana. This is due to this employee being a DOT Employee and the Federal law supersedes the State law.
