I was wondering if anybody knows if i did marjuana in high school but stopped afterwards... would that have an affect on me getting hired as a police officer?

It depends on how often or how many times you smoked it. You would probably still have a good chance with many departments a few years after high school.

It definitely could. But you could still get hired. Give it your best shot, and keep a good attitude, and stay away from the weed Exclamation

Like the others said a few years after high school and you stay clean, yeah you could get a job....but... donít lie about it. If on an application it asks have you ever use any drugs; say yes. If you lie on an app or to an interview board, you will be out no questions asked.

Skyler, Dennis, and kpd615 provided good advice! Do what you can to make yourself the best candidate that you can.

It would depend mostly on how often or how many times you've used marijuana, and how long it has been since the last time you've used it.
