"To be considered suitable for agency employment, applicants must generally not have used illegal drugs for the previous 12 months, at a minimum. The issue of illegal drug use before 12 months prior to the application is carefully evaluated during security processing. Recently, several states legalized the sale of recreational marijuana under their state law. In addition, many states have also legalized the use of marijuana for medical conditions, likewise under their state law. Despite the legalization of marijuana under state law, federal statute specifically prohibits federal agencies from granting security clearances to users of controlled substances, including marijuana. Further, the use of marijuana and other controlled substances in violation of federal law remains a possible disqualifying criterion under clearance eligibility standards. Regardless of whether an individual is located in a state that has legalized marijuana or in a foreign country where local laws allow it, and regardless of whether the Department of Justice enforces applicable federal criminal prohibitions in those jurisdictions, any use of marijuana may adversely impact that individual's eligibility for a security clearance."
