I’m 22 years old, working for DOD. My initial position only required public trust, which I received after filling out an SF85P. However a new position I am going to start requires a TS/SCI. In my SF86, i admitted to experimentation of a variety of drugs in college (weed, cocaine, mdma, and acid) but downplayed the extent to which I used cocaine. I said I only tried it a couple of times when in reality I’ve used it probably a total of 15 times over the course of 2 years, with the most recent use being late 2016. I said in the form that my most recent use was early 2015. I now have a very guilty conscious and am considering talking to my FSO to admit that I downplayed the use and ask if I could update my eQIP. My questions are:
- as I only submitted my SF86 a month ago, should I wait until an investigator calls me and I just admit in person to him/her? Or should I talk to FSO now to update it
- if I admit to use in the last year (it was just two times) will that automatically disqualify me from TS eligibility? I have absolutely sworn off all drug use since the last time I did it (7 months ago now) and have disassociated from friends who use and will sign any form intending to never use again with automatic revocation of clearance if violated.
Any recommendations/thoughts would be much appreciated.
