I received a certified letter from OPM today that says the following (in part):
“On your standard form 86 you admitted to using marijuana 2 to 3 times in August 2016. Although marijuana is legal under some state laws it is listed as a schedule one drug according to the federal government and is illegal under federal law.
The information surfaced during your investigation was of concern to us, but was not serious enough to warrant a negative fitness determination, deny permission to work on the NBI be contract, use the personal investigation processing systems, use NBI be equipment, or deny access to NBI be facilities.
We have made a favorable decision and are taking no action in your case other men to issue this letter of advisement.”
Does this mean I was approved for my clearance?! I’m really excited but want to make sure I’m not misunderstanding!
