Drug use among truckers has been said to be between 100,000 and 200,000 drivers back in 2009.
Drivers need to keep in mind first and foremost, these drugs not are not a part of the trucking lifestyle for most drivers. Despite what old movies and common chatter might suggest most truckers simply do not use illegal drugs.
Every time you do, you greatly increase the risk of destroying life and/or the life of others. There was a study that concluding 42 percent of all fatal crash involved either illegal or legal drug use. If you don't crash and have an accident first, you may run across a random drug test that changes your entire life.
If you have goals in life, and plans for the future, taking or using any kind of drug not prescribed by a Dr. is really not in your best interest. (Even those prescribed by Doctor might sometimes hurt you more than help. Ask your Dr. is there alternatives to the drug, like changing your habits)
