I have a possibly silly question. But I just finished my background interview with someone from the DCSA. During it I admitted to some use of Marijuana and a single use of mushrooms. I ended up giving names for witnesses who may also have used these substances for both of those occurrence. One contact for mushrooms and one for weed. For context, I live in California where things are either legal or decriminalized so hadn’t thought much of it before deciding to apply for a new job which requested me to get this clearance.
My question is, will what I said end up incriminating the people and will it possibly negatively affect them in the future? Either arrest or just a record of any kind Both for the mushroom and weed contacts. I’m fine with getting denied clearance if needed, but I wouldn’t want to jeopardize another person’s livelihood. I think one of them wants to work with gov contacts in the future, tho hasn’t applied for any clearance yet. Probably won’t need clearance for their work, but I’m a bit worried that I may have accidentally impacted their employment chances.
