    Hey all,

    I would like to enlist in the Coast Guard. I was searching online to see if there was a waiver for the drugs I have done, but couldn't find it. Figured y'all might know the answer. Here's the list of the two:

    Marijuana 4xs

    and this is the one i'm worried about: I have used a hydrocodone once.

    It has been 3 years since ive used a drug (the hydrocodone and marijuana was in high school)

    Other then that, i have no problems medically, legally (not even a ticket), or physically. If y'all would like more information to see if I'm competitive, i'll happily provide it. Thanks!

    Sam

    Was the hydrocodone prescribed? Either way, I don't think you'll even need a waiver. It was only a handful of times for pot, and the once on the other. It will ultimately be up to your recruiter if he proceeds with you. I personally have never done any drugs, but that's me and not the norm, sadly. So you were human, you were a kid, you didn't go any further with it than small experimentation. You should be ok... SHOULD BE.

    Something to think about...If your recruiter has the choice between someone with a history of drug use, no matter how minor, and someone without that history, who do you think he's going to take? Ultimately, it's the recruiter's choice.

    The someone without the drugs could also be a total tool and the recruiter will happily look past a youthful indiscretion. There are truly no carved in stone rules when the drug use is a small hiccup in the past. If you were a habitual user and promised the recruiter you would quit before you go to MEPS, well, you aren't getting a chance. But a little experiment here & there, while I don't condone it, it isn't a red letter on your forehead sort of situation.
