On Monday, July 13th, 2020, the national Department of Transportation held a Motor Carrier Safety Administration advisory committee meeting, during which a presentation focused on the opportunities the cannabis industry presents to commercial drivers. After the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, the Department of Transportation’s Office of Drug & Alcohol Policy & Compliance reached out the Drug Enforcement Administration, the FDA, and the United States Department of Agriculture to build potential partnerships and engage in open dialogue about the future of public health and safety regarding drug testing. The presentation mentioned several scenarios of regulatory mislabeling, the contamination of both drivers and products.
