NSA and prior drug use


#1

How does the NSA view prior drug use as compared to other agencies? Specifically less than 20 uses of marijuana and minimal cocaine use. Does time really mitigate such things (i.e 1-4 years abstinence)

What about other DOD affiliates?


#2

One year would be the minimum. Four years would be better.

I think they also consider your age and situation… 20 year old in college is one thing, 30 year old is another.

I think the degree of use you describe, if it occurred over a year ago and you were young and foolish (or at least young) would not be an automatic show-stopper.
