Delta-8 THC added to the DOD drug testing panel.

You might hear about products that include Delta-8 THC, like vapes and gummies, and that using Delta-8 won’t make you pop positive. The DOD, however, added Delta-8 THC to the drug testing panel in July 2021. Delta-8 is advertised as a milder high than the THC you’re familiar with and is often compared to CBD. However, like marijuana, CBD and hemp, Delta-8 THC is prohibited for Service members to use no matter the legal status of the product in your location or the claimed THC levels. Steer clear of products containing Delta-8 to avoid popping positive on the DOD drug testing panel.

Driving under any influence is not the answer.

You might think driving under the influence just means driving after drinking alcohol. However, a recent study reported that more people are driving while under the influence of marijuana, opioids and other illicit drugs and it’s causing more deaths behind the wheel. Protect yourself and your career by not using prohibited drugs like marijuana, steering clear of illicit drugs and only using your prescription drugs as directed by your health care provider. Remember – you are responsible for your actions.
