RDQ012 Posted October 10, 2016 Report Share Posted October 10, 2016 Just a little background:I graduated college this past spring, did well, got a STEM degree, and now have been looking at my options.Before I went to college (community college first) I worked for a couple years to save money to go to school.Just after finishing highschool I had smoked pot a little with some fellows, not often or a lot but, I had an unfortunate circumstance.I came to work one day at the restaurant and smelled like pot (I hadn't actually smoked that day but was in the car of friend who had).I was fired for it.On the WOFT packet it asks about previous drug usage and what-not and also past employers.The questions I have are these:1. Should I be straight up about this?2. Should I put down the employer and say I haven't done any illegal drugs while hoping the background check doesn't find out?I know a lot of you are going to look down upon this but it was just an unfortunate circumstance that sadly is with me now and I have to work around it. I'm an Eagle Scout, volunteer, and have worked hard in school to do well.I want to serve my country and fly but don't know if I'm sunk before the process even begins.Thank you for the input, if any.
