ITS NOT ILLEGAL TO DRIVE CAR ON MMT!! NEW
by: Anonymous

MMT = METHADONE MAINTENANCE TREATMENT

studies showed daily ingested methadone doses do not allow for euphoric effects therefore, NO DROWSINESS, i've even been on it for 8 years at over 100mgs. there are problem patients yes not everyone does it correctly, but those that do deserve a chance to live life without persecution from uneducated retards. No wonder anytime you go out to eat they look at you like that at the end with that fake smile, learn to live with yourself instead of taking it out on other people. good day sir. As for methadone and CDL's....i looked it up with alot of research and the answer sadly is no. However, it is due more to the stigma of the substance but most people dont understand MMT and why it is even allowed to be in existance. You think if people just went there and just laid around all day it would be legal? It is not like going to buy a 6-pack or 24-pack, it is completely different, i could explain the whole process to you but you wouldn't understand it anyway, go google it, methadone in short is a humanely compassionate existence as it helps people live normal lives without many absurd affects of the life of one living day to day on opiates, "anonymouse" you would never understand, try having compassion first.

licence NEW
by: old timer

hello, there is no drug testing to get your c.d.l.there is testing to get a job and random testing,no states drug test to get cdl or any endorsments just companies,as for methadone it is not in the standard 5 panel d.o.t. urine test,it will be checked if you get a 10 panel test and that's only if you are at fault in a fatality accident.good luck.

don't tell me anything about it being LEGAL to drive on that shit!!!!!! I was on methadone many years ago and it was illegal then and it still is!!! I have been clean from that shit for 17 years and you dumb ass are still getting high on it!!! It is an opioid idiot..........It is illegal to drive under the influence of any prescribed controlled substance such as Valium, Vicodin etc.....get your facts straight..you sound like an idiot who doesn't know the difference between right or wrong....sounds like methadone has gone to your brain waves.....and thats an under statement!!!

A powerful narcotic, Methadone is best known as a substitution therapy to help patients kick an addiction to heroin. Though it is considered to be effective as a maintenance program for addicts, it is not curative and has a high potential for misuse and abuse. Developed in Germany in 1937, the synthetic opioid is used also as an analgesic for pain and an antitussive for persistent coughing. It was introduced in the U.S. in 1947. Maintenance therapy came about in response to the drastic increase in heroin abuse following World War II. Like morphine and heroin, Methadone works on the opioid receptors in the brain and produces many of the same effects.

To "Anonymous" that said you cant drive car on that shit, that is not true! I drive my car and truck every day! People like you make me sick! You know nothing about methadone and how it works! First of all when taken in a monitored & controlled situation you do not get "high" it simply keeps the person from having the cravings and getting sick. Yes there are people that abuse methadone and they make it hard for the ones that are seriously trying to make positive changes in their life. It is also people like you with your rude, cruel and ignorant comments that make it hard for a recovering addict. It is because of people like you a lot of addicts don't ask for help for fear of being judged and looked down on.

First, you don't know why he is taking methadone. It is not just for getting off of drugs. Even if it is for that, good for him for trying to better his life. Methadone does not make you high, so that's not the scariest thing you have ever heard.

The alternative is the scariest. My ex was a heroin addict, blind in one eye. He used to drive loaded all the time. Worse than that, he drove dopesick.

It is a miracle that he didn't kill anyone! If only he was able to take methadone maybe he wouldn't have lost his career of 30+ years. However, to answer the man's question, no, you cannot drive while taking methadone.
Good luck with your situation.

It was just his question .. In return no respect!

Well the reality is back in the day .. Say the 80's quite a lot of truck drivers were drinking alcohol and driving .. Hence the introduction to the CDL..

Any way another reality is this globe is full of drug addicts. It's apparent by the comments I read none of those people were affected or afflicted by that retched problem .. They have different ones! However my brother overdosed and died at 41 yrs old. The methadone clinics hire any new counselor that will take the job..

The fact is it can save lives and families .. But as it is for driving! Well it is against the LAW! Your license will be revoked and if you do choose to do any drug that is listed within the guidelines and get into an accident .. You will go to PRISON.. Not jail..

So if you want to drive a tractor trailer for a living . Come off the Methadone. And go to mtgs for a while and decide if you can do this and not jeopardize any one else's life.
