  • felony drug use disqualification question

    Is the adolescent use of speed (10 times or less) a disqualifier in most agencies? The usage was approximately 5 years prior to application date. There was occasional marijuana use about 6 years prior to application date.

    Your answers to 2 questions will help you get a better response on your initial inquiry from people here:

    1.) When (in years and months ago) was your last usage;
    2.) What other substances (Just meth but no pot???)

        Believe it or not, I think a well-known city in Orange (CA) County will not automatically DQ tweak. Paperwork is in at work, give me until Monday night to confirm.

              I was dq from some depts. For using meth but not others, I was recently hired. However, I used it once, ten years ago, so you are facing more challenge than me. Also location makes a big difference. Plus I had military time.

                Most all felony drug use are a disqualifier depending on the department. Most departments that are accredited are a no go with felony drug use but I guess it depends on the pool of applicants you are competing with also. I know back in 93 when I was going through that nighmare of being a wanna be it was a no go. Nowadays Im not 100% on that issue. I think if you have done crystal meth or speed as many times as you indicated it would be irresponsible for a Police Department to offer you a job and a discredit to all of us who stayed away from felony drug use because we wanted to become career Law Enforcement. No offense.
