    if they find marijuana in your system but you already swore in and were assigned a unit and a spot at basic and ait? already had your military id and everything when you found out that you tested for marijuana?

    why would they give you a military id before you go to basic?

    the first thing they do when you go to boot camp is piss tested. if you pop they'll separate you from service, after making you stay for 6 months doing manual labor while waiting for admin to finish the paperwork.

    So this means you haven't left for basic training yet?

    If you haven't left yet....you aren't leaving. Your spot will be taken probably by someone waiting to quick-ship out of MEPS

    what service?


    people in this thread don't really seem to know what the fuck they are talking about.

    If its the army, you'll have to wait 60 days then try again. I never took a piss test in basic. and I have no clue why they'd give you a mil ID before basic.

    It seems like everywhere does it differently, even active vs. reserve. In the FSTP book I got, it said that FS' should check-in with their unit to get their first uniform issue and ID card. This finally made sense seeing as when I was at MEPS the last time several "shippers" were shipping....in uniform! When I asked my recruiter about this, he said I could get an ID from my unit but not a uniform. I ended up getting neither.

    Is it the cheesy laminated "ID card" that they just print off for you? If so, it's not really an ID card.

    You know there is a BOLD line between trying weed out and deciding that it's not your thing and then doing drugs freely

    its a real id with the sim card in it and everything.

    the branch is the army national guard. and the letter i received said i can retake the test in 45 days at their discretion. the thing is i really did quit smoking as soon as i found out i was gonna enlist and i used some preventative measures such as detoxification drinks and such.

    just yesterday i got a call from my superior telling me when to start coming to RSP drills and what to bring with me. i got my id yesterday. and havent gotten a phone call from my recruiter. i dont ship to boot camp till april 2nd so the 45 days doesnt really affect my ship date.

    i just hope i can clear everything up this is my life we're talkin about.

    That's just wrong. On so many levels.
