        Always interesting when someone decides that “teenager” is an excuse. So I guess all those murders, rapes, hate crimes etc are just “teenagers “ having angst?

        OP is STILL smoking dope and has a history of sales.

        Dopers are Dopers. They don’t change.

          I mean I only did it for like for two months and after getting caught I realized god blessed me with an opportunity and decided that life was not for me. I haven’t sold ever since so change could happen for sure.

        Yeah, and I'm also struggling with the idea that after many years of committing drug crimes, that now he has decided he wants to be a cop, just a few months later...

          And how is he hoping to even become an armed security guard? Federal law prohibits drug users from purchasing firearms. Question 21 e. on the 4473 is going to be a problem for him...

            Was getting ready to mention this. Whats he been sober from weed for a few months? Would be a very easy case for ATF to open and close.

But when I was in high school I made the mistake at the age of 16 of distributing marijuana in the school. Law enforcement was involved but due to good school record and grades they let me slide and let the school take care of the issue. I stopped smoking marijuana now for a couple of months and know I have to wait a while before getting employed but would the distribution that happened 5 years ago in the school disqualify me?
          Bruh, while you may be legally entitled to certain considerations due to be being a juvenile....Applying for a job is totally different. You were busted selling drugs in school. That’s looked upon about 10 times as unfavorably as simply selling drugs, which is a disqualifier in itself. Sorry homie, you’ll never be a cop. I tell you this not to be a jerk, but so that you won’t waste anymore of your own time trying to reach a goal that is unattainable.

            We are not talking about teenagers who are murders and rapists, so why do you keep bringing it up? Are you really trying to equate a teenager with pot brownies to murderers and rapists? The adult brain is not developed until around 25 or so. There is also evidence that the frontal lobe in males does not fully develop until the 30s. So, yes, young people do stupid things.

            No, I have never worked dope.

            We will have to agree to disagree on this issue.

              We can argue for days about how advanced or unadvanced the adolescent male’s judgement is......It’s all semantics. The point is, Alex cannot and I would argue should not be a cop. Does anyone disagree? I’d be shocked if you did.

                At this point, I don't think he should be a cop. It wasn't that long ago he was using pot. From a suitability standpoint, In 15 years, with no drug use and self-improvement? Maybe. You could say he's mitigated that concern if he makes that long. But I don't know how he'd able to carry as a felon, so that's still not going to happen.

              Without knowing the facts, all I see are people jumping to conclusions. Clarification on the OP's part would be helpful. According to what is written, he never sold anything, but he had plans to. Should a 16 year old kid who planned to sell pot brownies to a few of his friends be disqualified for life from becoming a police officer? Absolutely not. If his crime was that heinous, I don't think the responding officers would have walked away from a drug enterprise and let the school handle it. Again, we don't know the planned scope, or if anything was actually sold.

                Well, he actually admitted that he "distributed marijuana," so that's not in question. To what extent? Well, he not-so-deftly skirted around that question and hasn't responded since, so take that for whatever it's worth. That he's been a regular pot smoker for more than 6 years puts him into more than the "experimental" category.

              It sounds like he was pinched for what we call P-WID (possession with intent to deliver) in PA - that’s a felony in every state. I see no reason to sugarcoat it for the kid.....If you’re arrested for a felony, your chance of a law enforcement career are finito.

                Even if he didn't get arrested for it, he still committed the crime, and that's a deal-breaker...

              True. And after at least 5 years of regular MJ use, it is doubtful that OP's brain will ever fully develop...
