PostSubject: Would this be considered having done drugs?   Sun Oct 07, 2012 11:47 pm

About 10 years ago when I was a kid i tried marijuana once maybe twice and that was it. Both my wife and my mother agree that this does not count as having done drugs. So when asked at the oral interview if I have done drugs before would it be a no or a yes? Could it also be a no but say i have tried it once? This is the only thing I am worried about as i have no criminal record nor any traffic violations. My record is pretty clean so I am just curious on this. Thank you

Yes. It is what it is. You tried marijuana once or twice approximately ten years ago. That is what your answer should be. Relax and be honest.

I don't think having tried it a couple times that long ago will affect your chances of getting the job. Don't worry about it.

I understand to always be honest and was not planning on hiding this. I was just worried this would hurt my chances because of me trying it when I was like 14.

You shouldn't worry if you can pass the psych test. Get the college. It seems like everyone has college nowadays.
