  • drug experimentation- possible dq?

    I am interested in a career in law enforcement, but unfortunately I experimented with marijuana when I was fifteen. I was hanging out with somebody that wasn't so stable and due to peer pressure I smoked marijuana. In my entire life I have only smoked it three times, however, and obviously never will again. If I demonstrate my maturity and integrity to the agencies I apply to, can these unfortunate circumstances be overlooked? Thank you in advance for replies.

    If that was it, most places will overlook it.
    For the cops out there: You are an adult. If you want to write someone, write them. If you don't want to write someone, then don't write them.

        Drug experimentation.

        Disclose fully. If that's all of it, it shouldn't be a problem.

          What would be considered a problem? I see that everyone is putting don't lie, disclose fully, but what would be a problem w/ marijuana use? Besides the obvious being a chronic smoker, dealer, buyer.

What if it's someone that just uses socially, maybe once or twice a year, has had periods of not using (stopped in highschool for sports testing and explorer program), and maybe have done it 3 times since graduating high school, all social experiences, never bought or sold the stuff. Maybe have done once in the last 2 years. Never really smoked to get a full on high, like I said, mainly a social experience...any thoughts?

            Is it legal up in your area of OR. I know its not in my part of the country. Last time I heard in the news it was still illegal in all parts of the country.

            P.S. You just opened a can of worms on this one. Be prepared to be eaten alive.

                That makes it sound like you used more than a few times...It sounds like your asking how much you should admit to.

                    That's the thing, it's been a few times, maybe max of 5 in my lifetime. Never did it through highschool because we had sports drug testing and I was an explorer, a few times in middle school, never in my first two years of college, was a student public safety officer, and 2 times when I transferred to my current school, over 2 years ago. I was just curious what is considered a problem, or excessive use. I've been around the stuff many times since my last time, but have grown up and decided that MJ is completely useless. I have nothing to hide, I've made some mistakes in my choice to socially use it, but have never abused it.

                      I don't understand what you're getting at man? I'm not asking you since you're not an LEO, so why don't you keep your comments to yourself and go troll some other thread.
