    I know it says prior marijuana use isn't a disqualifier. But let's be real, it will make the already rigorous admissions process more difficult. Integrity first is an Air Force core value so of course, i'll report it.

    How much does this hurt me, whether it was legal or illegal?

    I should also add that it was only twice and under wild circumstances. I have no history of other alcohol abuse or any other drug use.

    Thanks.

    Be truthful, and you will most likely be fine.

    Lie, and you will look over your shoulder forever and risk losing everything you have worked for.

    The DOD Security clearance form SF-86 is pretty thorough with the background check. All cadets will have to go through this check.

    Lots of old threads on this.
