Marijuana Investment


#1

I have a security clearance through the DOJ and am interested in making an investment in a marijuana grow facility in Colorado. The facility is in full compliance with Colorado State law and I would be a minority owner with no day to day or operational control. However, I'm worried about maintaining my security clearance. Even if I disclose this investment to my superiors, would this be an issue in my security clearance?

Thank you in advance.

Actually, the question you should be asking is how serious is it if you didn't disclose it as an outside activity/employment? Very serious! I would suggest you seek legal advice as to how you would mitigate the issue of being an owner of an illegal drug company (according to federal law)as a clearance holder before you make any moves.
