I applied to the academy last year and was ultimately denied admission. At the time, I had never used marijuana or any drugs for that matter and so when asked about it on the DoDMERB I truthfully answered no. However, during the summer, I occasionally used marijuana with some friends(Less than once a week, I realize this is beyond just experimenting). I was 18 and live in a state that has decriminalized marijuana and so I didn't see much wrong trying it for a summer as it seemed no worse than speeding. I never distributed and was never really in possession either as my friends would usually just share what they had. There is no record of this (police arrests, etc) but I am still planning to disclose everything if asked about it. I later found out there are still federal laws preventing the use of marijuana and after doing some browsing on this forum, realized how great of a mistake I had made and immediately stopped, having no plans to ever pick it up again. How are my chances now reapplying this year? Will the academy admissions take into account the laxer laws of my state? I am currently attending a university that has quite the reputation of having drugs available, specifically marijuana, and if I keep clean while here will this help my case? I also recall that my DoDMERB is valid for 2 years and when I looked at the form that I had to submit again this year(I think it's name was something along the lines of present health) there was nothing about any drug use between my exam and now. How would I best disclose this new information? I regret my decision and to be honest hate myself for it but I have learned from it and I am ready to face the consequences.
