    Question about drug policy for FBI applicant (specifically prescription drugs)

    I have been mostly drug free all my life. Never smoked weed, heck I have never smoked a cigarette. However, I have slipped up once. There was a very important test that I needed to do real well in (this of course isn't an excuse I'm just giving you some background) and I made the mistake of accepting one - just one - my cousin's prescribed Adderall pills (I say accepting because he offered it to me without asking). This was six years ago.

    Does this fall under point 2 or point 4 of the FBI's drug policy? (link: https://www.fbijobs.gov/52.asp)

    If it falls under 2 would this disqualify me from applying to the FBI? If not would this be a viewed as a significant negative on my application, or would they view this as an insignificant matter?

    Also, I saw on one forum where the FBI's policy towards prescription drugs was revised in 2010. Is this true?

    Welcome Aboard, Tom. Please read the forum rules regarding posting links as well as general forum decorum. While I have no specific information regarding the FBI policy there is a standard rule that applies in these situations. Disclose anything you believe is questionable and let the interviewer/examiner make the determination. Any other courese of action could lead to a DQ for falsifying information and/or deceit. I think you will likely be OK but only the Bureau can say for sure.
