I recently accepted a contractor job in the DC metro area that requires a Public Trust with a high risk designation. I completely forgot to disclose on my e-QIP for the SF-85P position that I smoked a very small amount of marijuana on one occasion about 5 months ago in a social setting. I had recently moved to the area and was under the impression that it was legalized - I subsequently found out it was just decriminalized. Of course, I understand that the federal government doesn’t recognize legalization. Otherwise, I haven’t smoked or used any other drugs in the past seven years.
I’m going to immediately disclose this information during the subject interview regardless. But, I’m curious whether this will disqualify me - the position is not with DOJ, DOD, FBI, CIA, USCBP.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
