3 consequences of using marijuana after your state ‘legalizes’ | Military Times

Must Read

As more states are legalizing marijuana, people are becoming concerned about the consequences when it comes to certain parameters. First and foremost, marijuana users will fail future NICS firearm background checks since they are considered as “prohibited persons.” This is because marijuana is only legal on a state basis, not on a national basis. Second, marijuana users will have their security clearances denied or stripped. Unfortunately, not all clearance applicants understand that all forms of marijuana use are illegal. Regardless of whether you own a marijuana card or purchased it at a dispensary, the federal government will most likely consider it illegal. Lastly, marijuana users will be processed for separation from their military branch. Visiting a dispensary includes having a record there, and the government does not differentiate between smoking and edibles.
