As it currently reads the rules regarding medicinal cannabis in the drug and alcohol policy of the Federal Department of Transportation does not allow for the usage of medicinal cannabis if you are a professional Driver that holds a valid commercial drivers license. The current D.O.T rules make no distinction between prescribed medicinal cannabis and the recreational usage of cannabis and severely punishes those who do chose to utilize medicinal cannabis to medicate, However, it is widely accepted by the D.O.T for patients to consume opiates as long as they are legally prescribed by a licensed medical professional. We as a community of professionals that contribute so much of our time, lives  and health to ensure that our country is consistently moving forward and progressing into the future should not have to choose between our health in terms of safely, legally and responsibly consuming medicinal cannabis and our careers or ability to feed our families all because we are choosing to be mindful of our health and choosing an alternative form to help us alleviate the ailments that plague our brothers and sisters in this industry that range from chronic pain and anxiety to high blood pressure and severe drug and alcohol abuse.
