    I was wondering how many times smoking marijuana before you get dq. Also if it was smoked out of a vape does it count. Only did it 4 times and never doing it again. Also does that show up in drug tests if they give one and do I still mark yes for smoking it since it was not the actual weed but mixed with nicotine?

    It doesn't matter whether you vape, use a bong, or eat a brownie, it's still considered using Marijuana.

    You said you only used it about 4 times, the bigger question is how long ago did you use it.

    Yes you will still need to mark the box yes no matter what it was mixed with.

    As far as the drug test, unless you used it recently nothing will show up on such a test, now if it was just before you were tested and you test hot, you're probably going to be DQ'd.

    Nobody here can tell you what they will consider experimental, just be honest on the form because this won't be the last time you're asked the question and the most important thing is to be consistent with your answers.

    My guess is that you'll be fine, that is unless the four times you tried it were very recent, then that "could" be an issue. Again, all you can do is be honest and continue through the process and see what happens.

    If that's sophomore year in high school then you'll probably be fine, just be honest and go through the process, are you applying for a scholarship?

    +1 Jcleppe. BE HONEST and you will be okay. If you fib, you will always regret it and will be looking over your shoulder for the truth to catch up.
