Failed a pre-employment drug screen 4 marijuana

(reno nv usa)

I have been a otr driver for 24 yrs. I have a unblemished driving record no accidents more safety awards than u can shake a stick at and a few times n my carrier i have been a trainer.

I took 5 months off when my mother died so i wasn't working. I smoked marijuana for about 2 weeks, b4 that it had been 20 yrs. I waited 45 days b4 going back to work but failed the drug screen.

I know about the dot required s.a.p substance abuse program required, but i checked with a few trucking companies and their policy is noway jose.

I am asking if anyone knows if there are trucking companies out there willing to hire a driver who failed a drug screen but completed the dot required s.a.p .

I need 2 get back on the road. Any info would b appreciated.

This near identical thing happened to me. Don't know the ramifications of this. Wasn't driving for three months and partook a few times. Failed a pre employment. The company still wants me but trying to find out a few things. Can I take another after time gets me clean? Does this affect my safety record due to I was not driving or employed? He knows I am a good driver and I used to work w him in the past. A guy w athouraty and an empty truck. He wants me in it but is this not possible now or am I done? Any advise? What have you found out in your situation?
