OBJECTIVE: to understand the subjective experience of truck drivers regarding the use of psychoactive substances. METHOD: an ethnographic approach to qualitative research was employed. RESULTS: the discovered elements, such as high levels of substance abuse, corroborate epidemiological research about the theme including, however, subjective feelings and testimonials. CONCLUSIONS: there is a divergence of opinions that weakens the category regarding negotiation for better working conditions, while the use of illicit substances is considered normal and is unquestioned by the subjects.
