  • chances????

    Hi guys/gals!
    I posted a question earlier my drug use...and I just want to get more specific about it and see your opinions.

    I had a stint of about a year to a 1.5 years of marijuana use. Smoked maybe 4-5 times some weeks, 1-2 other, and sometimes none. I have been clean since 10/24/06...important day for me. I never sold drugs and never bought huge quantities. The most I ever bought was 2 grams. I have since changed my ways and absolutely despise the drug personally. It wasted my life, my money, and possibly my future.

    Also I have tried shrooms once....did not get any effects from it, I know this doesn't change the matter of fact that I ingested them but just thought I should let you know. Never did them again...not interested in any drug again.

    I am currently 20....shrooms was probably about 2 years ago

    How badly will this "stint" go against being a LEO???
    If you guys/gals need to ask me anymorebackground/clarifying questions, feel free.

    If you wanna bash me...FLAME ON!
    Thanks guys/gals I truly appreciate what you do for the community

    Based on your useage, most agencies will not consider hiring you until you have been clean for at least FIVE YEARS. So, when you are twenty-six or so, you should begin your application process - if you are still interested.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

      Your drug usage is too recent. I think most if not all PDs will DQ you.

          Chances??

          Right now, your chances aren't too good. The use of "Shrooms" may be an automatic DQ for some agencies. In the meantime, build a solid work history, continue your education if possible, be active in the community. All of these are pluses. Realistically, about five years will need to elapse between your last drug use, and your application. Hope things work out for you.

            It's only been 6.5 months...you're going to have to show a "history" of being clean...I agree with the other...more like 5 years of being clean and the shrooms might take you out of the running. They would at my PD.

            I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

              Shrooms + amount of usage with the MJ = no go.

                Build a work history, then maybe apply. As of now, I think you would be DQ.

                  Marijuana use or experimented is somewhat expected in these times. But mushrooms? Mushrooms are definitely not acceptable. Clean up and change your way of living and make better choices.

                  If you’re serious about becoming LEO, honestly, for the next few years volunteer at some type of DARE program, PAL, or something geared towards keeping kids off of drugs. You can use your bad decisions and history to stop other kids from throwing their lives away.

                  Kids can really relate to people or someone as young as you who have done the samethings. You can impact thier lives. Who knows, you may a niche in that.

                  Good luck.

                      Every agency is different, but most I am aware of view "shrooms" or any hallucinogenic drug as an automatic DQ. Marijuana is a little more flexible.
