Daughter Asking About Drug History Questionnaire
May 16, 2014 3:41 PM Subscribe
My daughter (24) has a chance to get a great job in a government agency. She has to fill out a notarized questionnaire about past drug use. She did her share of experimenting with various stuff, but nothing recently and she feels that she would pass a drug test easily. She's a damn sight straighter and I was at her age.

She asks whether is would be better to be honest about her past, or just deny her previous dallies into this stuff. It is a job she really wants and one that would pay her more than most 20somethings earn. My leaning would be to just lie, esp. since I doubt there are any pics on the net of her taking bong hits, or bragging about this stuff, etc. If she came clean about it, knowing it was in the past, would this likely disqualify her?
