Here’s the situation- I’m filling out the SF86 for a Secret Clearance. 10 years ago I was arrested for Illegal Consumption (Petty Offense). 9 years ago I was arrested for possession of cannabis less than 2.5 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia (this was a small one hitter pipe).
The illegal consumption was amended to Disorderly conduct (Petty Offense) and dismissed. I was acquitted of the possession of cannabis. I was then placed under 2 years court supervision for the paraphernalia charge which I then completed and was acquitted. I had both possession charges expunged from my record.
I’ve been clean of any drugs for 5 years and haven’t had any marks on my record since the incident 9+ years ago.
Can I still be approved?
