        the term "drug history" is very relative..................how much and how long ago is important.


        Yes I know officers who have used drugs.


        Here is one example
        http://www.dps.state.ia.us/commis/pr...ications.shtml

        To determine whether you meet the Department's drug policy, please answer the following questions:

        Have you used marijuana at all within the last two years?
        Have you used marijuana more than a total of 15 times in your life?
        Have you used any other illegal drug (including anabolic steroids after February 27, 1991) at all in the past 10 years?
        Have you used an other illegal drug (including anabolic steroids after February 27, 1991) more than a total of five times in your life?
        Have you ever sold any illegal drug for profit?
        Have you ever used an illegal drug (no matter how many times or how long ago) while in a law enforcement or prosecutorial position, or in a position which carries with it a high level of responsibility or public trust?

        If you answered YES to any of the above six questions, you are immediately disqualified and should NOT apply for a peace officer position with the Department of Public Safety.

        Other conduct not specified will be evaluated

        Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

              You would not be hired in NY with that much usage. That's almost every other week that you went and lit up a joint.

                You used 20 times and you don't consider that abuse?

                You're probably done. At least with my dept you would be.

                Minimization is not going to be your friend here either.

                  Depends on the dept. Some will forgive that much and some will consider it an auto DQ.

                      What you consider abuse may well be a LOT different than any background investigator's definition of abuse.

                        Now your backpedaling and trying to downplay it. You also don't get to decide what abuse is.

                          In the course of a few replies you have already changed your number.

                          What made you stop at 20, I mean 15 or was it 21, 22...

                              In the example I posted, The Iowa Department of Public Safety (Troopers, DCI, DEA, Fire Marshal) 15 is the absolute maximum.---16 becomes a permanent disqualification.

                              Also no department is going to take the above as an answer. You WILL have to come up with a number and pass a polygraph on that number.

                              NO.................if you have more exposure than the limit of the department............20 yrs isn't long enough.

                              You HEARD about such and such an officer..................but is that documented? I doubt it.
