If I have used Marijuana lightly in the past, and have since been clean, will that use disqualify from AFSF?
I have been told by my recruiter to "let the past be the past" and not put my light drug usage down on paper because it will disqualify me from certain jobs in the Air Force. But I want to come clean so that I have nothing to hide. Does anybody know if my drug history will disqualify me from being in the Air Force Security Forces?

Any help on this subject would be great, especially help from those in the military. Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.
