I am starting the process for a secret clearance. I currently hold a Public trust which was granted in 2019. Prior to this I had actually received an unsuitable determination on a public trust in 2017 due to marijuana use within the past year at the time which I reported on the SF-86.
Since this was clearly mitigated enough for the public trust I got in 2019, I am assuming it won’t be an issue now, however I am curious about if it might put be in different stack of papers, so to speak. Can anyone speak to how likely I am to get an interim due to already holding a public trust, even though my background isn’t totally blemish-free? Or if there’s a possibility the investigation will take longer than normal due to background?
