I am going to be a recent graduate and have used marijuana before and psychedelic drugs three times, I have an offer from a DOE lab.
Here is my timeline for usage of marijuana:
I used marijuana in February of 2018 one time.
I used marijuanaI occasionally, once a week to once a month, between August 2016 - August 2017.
I used marijuana frequently during 2015 - August 2016.
Acid in the summer of 2015 two times.
Mushrooms in January of 2016.
Given this information what is my likelihood of getting the clearance, of course I will be completely honest on my forms.
Also is there a difference between a pre-hire background check and the actual security clearance? Because that would get me closer to a year of drug free use if they are different processes.
If you think my usage may be questionable should I scrap this opportunity and go with another I have at the moment to save myself some time and embarrassment?
