Regarding the below question (Part B of Sec. 21 on SF85P):
“In the last 7 years, have you been involved in the illegal purchase, manufacture, trafficking, production, transfer, shipping, receiving, or sale of any narcotic, depressant, stimulant, hallucinogen, or cannabis, for your own intended profit or that of another?”
Previously I’ve assumed this question was asking about purchasing drugs with the intent to make money for yourself or your friends (i.e., drug dealing, reselling…), and have answered “No” while admitting to the use of drugs that I purchased in “legal” states for solely private personal consumption and no reselling.
HOWEVER, does the question wording technically include ANY purchase of drugs, even for private use, such as marijuana at a dispensary in a “legal” state? I ask because inherently any “purchase” results in profits for “another”, in my example scenario the “other” party is the dispensary.
I would love to hear from investigators on how this question is interpreted.
