Hi, I am in the process of applying with an IC. I live with my family, and my parents are heavy marijuana users. My SO occasionally does it 1 or 2 times a year. I have experimented with it about 4.5 years ago, only 4 to 5 times total (stressful life events that are better now + better coping skills).
I live in a legalized state, and get offered it on occasion, so I just tell people I’m either the DD or if pushed, that my current job does random drug testing (it does not, but it gets people to stop offering).
I will eventually have to take a full scope poly and background investigation for TS/SCI clearance.
I intend on being fully upfront about these subjects. I make an effort not to partake, but people significant in my life do indulge; will that be a black mark against me and my candidacy? I do have sporadic bouts of anxiety due to work and life (thankfully no need for medication) and I am prescribed Adderall for ADD. I worry that it will negatively affect me during the polygraph and investigation, even though I make the effort to not break federal law.
Can anyone offer any insight or advice please?
