  • Roommate received a marijuana complaint at our apartment

    Last night my roommate received a marijuana complaint and the police showed up to our apartment. They spoke to us and said wasn’t a big deal, but wanted to just say hey don’t do it at home. Since I was home and on the lease they asked for my name. My roommate said that it was all his fault and it has nothing to do with me. Police said they would note that in their report that he took full responsibility. Is this going to negatively effect me in the hiring process? As soon as I get assigned a background investigator I’ll tell them what just happened.

    Be prepared for questions like, did you know your roomate was using an illegal drug in your apartment? and if you did, why did you allow it to happen, did you ever partake, did you allow parties in your apartment to happen with drugs present? ...etc.

      Yeah, this brings up all sorts of questions, like your judgement for starters- choosing to be roommates with a drug criminal- someone who you know uses illegal drugs.

      Even if it doesn't disqualify you, there are plenty of other applicants who are not living with drug criminals...

        I did not believe this would be an issue my only rule was i do not care what you do just keep it away from me. Now it has become my issue. However I do understand what your saying and have to accept the hand I have been dealt.

        Then you do have a judgement problem. This profession is probably not for you...

        This is not the appropriate attitude for someone who wants to be a police officer.

      My first question as your BI would be: "Do you still live with this roommate?"

        Our lease is up in July. I did not think this would be an issue.

        You didn’t think that associating with criminals was a problem....

      Even if MJ is legal under state law, it’s still illegal under federal law.

      It sounds like it’s still illegal under your state law.

      So.

      You’re associating with criminals breaking both state and federal laws. That brings your judgement into question.

      You’re allowing them to live under your roof, not evicting them and not reporting them.

      Even if you don’t partake yourself, you’re presenting the appearance of impropriety.

      These issues bring both your judgement and integrity into question.
