    They do a urine test. I don't know if it is for drug testing but I'm guessing that is part of it. It doesn't matter though. You have to fess up to it. Otherwise, if they find out later on, it is a hit on your integrity and you will have an awful hard time getting anywhere.

    I'm not going to say what is the wrong thing to do and what is the right thing to do, but if you're looking for a straight forward answer to your question, follow the link below and scroll down to the first response from Mr. Mullen, and there is your answer.

    No there is not a drug test. It's a urine test to measure protein, blood, etc. However, quite frankly it doesn't make a difference because you are going to have to disclose everytime you've used any sort of drug. This includes dates.

    What's going to have to happen is you will have to disclose the dates in which you used drugs on your DoDMERB history form. The doctor will then have to comment on the use. If you used, something like marijuana 2 times freshman year and explain that it was a bad choice, etc. the doctor can write it off as a poor juvenille decision. Usually end of story. Not sure how this is going to work when you say that you used marijuana (I'm assuming?), a few days before your DoDMERB physical. The doctor will not be able to write it off as a juvenille decision. Atleast I'm assuming. This is just my two cents.

    Contact Larry Mullen, regardless. See what he has to say.

    This is NOT a Drug urine, so their is no observation by clinical staff. Please read the drug use question on the history form and answer it truthfully:thumb:
