The U.S. Department of Transportation says not to get too excited about legalized marijuana in Washington and Colorado; it will have no effect on drug testing practices. At least for employees in safety-sensitive positions already subject to strict drug and alcohol screening anyway, such as pilots, school bus drivers, truck drivers, train engineers, subway operators, aircraft maintenance personnel, and others.

The DOT’s official stand is that it does not recognize either recreational or medical use of the Schedule I drug. Politico has the story.
