Hi everyone, first post here. I will be processing with an IC agency requiring a security clearance. I had a few questions on some of the issues I have with my past and if these issues would prevent me from getting a clearance? For reference I’m in my twenties.
Marijuana usage 3 times total between 2015 and 2017. I did not purchase or receive; my only usage was in a social setting. The most recent was about 1.5 years ago and I only did one puff. I no longer associate with the person I experimentally used with the first 2 times (ex) and only occasionally associate with the person I used with the most recent time. Association is mostly through social media every now and then.
Downloading of media on personal computers. I used to download quite a bit in my younger years during high school when torrenting became popular. It was mainly music with occasional movies and software. Into college I downloaded, but not to the degree as when I was younger. It was mostly for some rare media or for a pdf book that I needed for my class before a test and couldn’t afford. My most recent download was a few months ago. Total value is maybe a few thousand dollars worth over my lifetime, but not over a short period of time. I know this will probably come up during a poly, so will this be an issue for conduct? This is the one I’m most worried about.
A few minor traffic infractions over a short period of time. I had 2 speeding tickets and got into a fender bender in the same year. This was over 5 years ago. I have not had a ticket since. My record is otherwise clean, but I’m worried that since all of these events occurred over such a short time period that it may present an issue.
