towards the end of the summer I plan on joining the marines... I used to smoke marijuana daily up until about a couple of months ago. plus i've experimented with coke and shrooms before. (didn't like either.) I quit smoking and did not look back. I never plan on doing drugs again. Joining the marines will be the final step of turning my life into something I can be proud of... but I'm afraid my history will hinder me. When I go to the recruiter, I was planning on saying I tried marijuana and stopped doing it after a few times. Frankly, I'm too ashamed of my prior drug use. Not even considering that admitting so will probably disqualify me. Will this fly? how about for a security clearance? what do ya'll think?
