Just assume a drug test for any type of security clearance. That way you're prepared

Never got drug tested for DOS TS

Used to have a moderate public trust - interim clearance was pretty quick. No drug test.

No drug test. Depending on how high up a clearance you need, you may have to disclose drug use especially if you’re being polygraphed

Used to have DHS Suitability, no drug test

I've never heard of anyone being tested, but depending on the level they will ask about drug use up to seven years ago.

I have a DHS public trust and it was definitely more invasive than other clearances I have gone through that were the “same” clearance (Treasury, FDA). No drug test, but they have denied people for drug use of 5-6 years in the past. I can answer more questions on the process if you have any

Trying to gauge how long the process is and if they drug test ?

Lol cap thanks for an answer that doesn’t help me. Most clearances don’t actually test - which is why I am asking

Op stop smoking for awhile just to be safe

Sure most clearances don't drug test but they investigate and if you are found lying you will be rejected and it will impact your chances of other clearances. Stop using drugs and just report what you did.
