Likely, but disclose it. If you ever go up for a higher clearance and didn’t disclose, they can boot you.

Agreed with D1

There are websites that can explain this for you in full detail w/articles. Google is your friend.

I disclosed my youthful weed dabbling and got my TS/SCI with full-scope just fine
