PostSubject: How bad will this affect my chances of becoming a cop?   Mon Aug 24, 2009 5:51 am

Okay im 17 and gonna be a senior in high school. My sophomore year of high school I smoked marijuana twice. Since then I never touched it. I occasionally do some underage drinking but as far as illegal thats just about it. I have no criminal record and a perfect driving record. Next year I plan on going to a community college for two years then transferring to a university to get my bachelors degree in criminal justice.

Oh yeah and a couple of my friends I have smoke pot I was wondering if that would be a problem too because I heard they ask that on the polygraph.

Thanks

It would be better if you've never smoked marijuana. However, twice during your sophmore year of high school probably won't hurt your chances too much five years down the road. You should stop underage drinking. It will be more you have to worry about during your background investigation. Getting a bachelors degree is a great idea. It could be one of the best things you do for your career! You do have to be careful of the company you keep! Good luck!
