I’m interested in applying for a security clearance in the near future possibly a secret clearance. The last time I’ve used illegal drugs was around 2011 / 2012 time frame, I was given some medicine but can’t remember the exact quantity but I think it was around 10 pills due to an injury and had smoked marijuana a couple of times off and on. I was denied a clearance in the early 2000s due to marijuana and would like to prevent a denial this time! It’s a long story which I’ll save you the headache of having to read as it was a being young and stupid to summarize, I’m not going to repeat that mistake again
I’m no longer doing any illegal drugs in the future and don’t have a drinking problem
So, my concern is the following, I approximate on the secret clearance, but if I want to try for a higher level clearance in the future with a poly that I would fail since I can’t remember the exact times and amounts
Thanks for the suggestions!
