I am a recent grad (21 years old) with a few potential job options that would require clearance. One a TS clearance and the other Secret (work contingent on receiving interim). Both with federal agencies (not IC). I don’t think I have any real issues in my background except for marijuana use 3 times 15 months ago. (Would likely be 16-18 months when I fill out sf/86). It was all within about two weeks with old friends (I was at home from college during Covid).
I intend to mitigate through no/less contact with those people, youth, different stage in life, etc. However, I’m afraid time since use is simply too soon.
I am interested in your thoughts. Would it perhaps be more prudent to go for one position over the other considering this issue?
