I’ve seen a few questions on here similar to my situation but mine is a bit different.
As the title says, I was not completely honest about my drug usage when filling out my SF-86 and my investigation interview over two years ago. To start it off, when filling out my SF-86 I didn’t include any usage, however when I had my interview, I did admit that I had smoked weed before and we went through the process of reporting that. However, I did not mention that I have done a few more drugs, such as mdma, lsd, and mushrooms. The last time I had done anything was a few weeks before that investigation interview, honestly this even slipped my mind because I was so nervous going into the interview (I know, I’m an idiot). I don’t really have any excuse for lying other than I was scared to admit to it.
Now fast forward to today. The investigation that I mentioned was around 2.5 years ago, and I have had my TS clearance for about a year now. I am working in an environment that I need to have it. I have not gotten a poly yet and I’m not sure when/if one is coming (I’m assuming one will eventually).
I am also beginning to look at other jobs in the cleared space. One of which I am starting the interview process with and has stated that a poly will be necessary. So basically I’m wondering how screwed I am with either this new job or when my review/poly do come around. I intend on telling them the truth with the poly of course, and the truth is also that I haven’t done any type of drug since the last time I mentioned over two years ago. I do understand though that I did lie to begin with and I fully admit that I was dumb.
Any advice is greatly appreciated and sorry if this question is asked too much.
