I would wait. I screened out a sharp young man just yesterday. Joined the Navy right out of high school, served 4 years, discharged honorably, no Captain’s Mast (Article 15 admin trouble). Tried MJ once just last month when he got out. Then he tried using his DoD clearance as he just separated to get another cleared job. For him the standard is even higher. Once you have a clearance and you fully understand the rules you are held to a higher standard. In his case I told him 12 months minimum, but recommend 15 to 18 months as he used when he had a clearance listed in JPASS. You are correct there is boiler plate information stating you can reapply in 12 months. That doesn’t mean you get a clearance in 12 months it means re-apply. This will become a bigger and bigger problem as states legalize and pot based products proliferate: potato chips, candy bars, suckers, chocolate, cannabis oil…etc.
