chris, if it is something you want cast the dice and see where it falls no one here can tell you what your back ground will show, if you know what to do do it, dont ask someones opinion about what you should do, and most of us were not born cops, and tried to fit in one time or another...if it is in you give it hell, if you are not sure then shut up about it.

The fact that you smoked marijuana in the past is not a big deal. Most officers at one point in their life have smoked, or at least tried it. What can kick you in the ass is if you lie about it. Be honest. I would be worried about the DUI. Were you a minor? What state do you live in? I would check with the law enforcement commission in your state to see if you are eligible. In Texas a DUI is a class C misdemeanor, it's like a traffic ticket. A DWI is a class B (for the 1st offense). If you get a DWI, then you have to wait 10 years before you are eligible to be a police officer. If you have a DUI there is no waiting period, but you might want to get it removed from your record.

My hell how many times are you going to post the same question under different topics?

LCarvin is right it can take anywhere to 2 to 10 years it depends on your state. But if you want your true answer get an application for P.O.S.T. or Police and it will ask if you have ever had an DWI and if so how long ago and right under it should say how long it has to be.

The DUI will impact more negatively than the reefer. I have been on a quest to bring back Reefer and Ganja into mainstream dope conversation. Can I get a witness?

Prior use of marijuana is not going to keep you from becoming a LEO provided you were simply an occasional user. Not sure what the DUI will do for you as it appears that States have different standards about that.

You call marijuana dope around here and the poor misunderstood criminal gets all upset. Aparently, dope is now crack/meth. Hurts my feelings I have gotten old and out of the loop.
