        You do have an opportunity to disclose information. However, even if you state that you've never taken an illegal drug, but you show a strong reaction to the question, it will look suspicious. Is it fair? No, but it's the way things are currently done.

Good luck on the poly, 9 years as an LEO and no failed poly and they stated in a mailed letter that I deliberately tried to manipulate the exam and that I showed significant response to drug use... SMH, ridiculous concidering I haven't touched an illegal drug or even a prescribed one in 15+ years
          I'm pretty disgusted with this. The amount of time and money you invested, plus current officer. Those of you with good news on getting conditional offers, prepare yourself. I can think of one on here with a final offer. I can name atleast 5 that failed poly's or had to retake. They would fail the pope. Those failing are current and former law enforcement, all with successful polygraphs, and concrete solid background information with no room for interpretation. I haven't received my results, but I was treated like Bin Laden during it.

          • Of course I disclosed it, it was over 15 years ago... Just ridiculous. I'm assuming they are going to have the same issues as Cbp and border where 60% of applicants fail. You can't sit in a room for 6+'hours and expect accurate results. There's a reason why local and state exams only last an hour tops

            • The poly is a joke. This position is an excepted service position which means they can hire and fire how they want. I am a Marine, Afghanistan veteran, U.S. Embassy guard with a TS clearance. NEVER EVEN TOUCHED A JOINT yet i showed a reaction to drug use. Hilarious!! Its all dog crap. If thats how they hire then no wonder FAMS are depressed and suicidal, they're hiring f ucking robots

                • Do they tell you how long you have to wait to reapply after a failed polygraph?

                  • IMO they want you to admit to some youthful experience or some exposure.

                    You know they can pull every single script that has ever been filled correct?
                    I don't expect you to know what it takes to deal with what I deal with every day in a high risk area because you've never been swinging in the breeze dealing with XYZ with no qualified immunity to protect everything you own and no cavalry at the end of a radio...

                    • Believe it or not some people haven't had any exposure I passed the question and didn't disclose anything because there was nothing to disclose. If you were prescribed it they don't care about it they'll tell you so themselves.

                        Even so, that wouldn't be done until the background investigation. Imagine if they did that with everybody they polygraphed. I don't think that would be very time effective...

                        I mean they drug test you before taking the damn thing and yet still find ways to accuse you of being a drug user..
