What is the Navys deal on this? Army was 45 days restriction 45 days extra duty, 2/3 pay for 2 months and reduction in rank for E5 and below. Above was automatic discharge. If they let you stay in shape up and do your time and do not be ignorant anymore. Go to the rehab. You can still get a honorable discharge if this is the case. If you own up to it for DOE jobs and Nuke Plant you MAY get a pass if you show your rehab and admit your stupidity. Both will ask if you have been punished by Captains Mast or Article 15, You will have to own up to it.
As for the OTH being changed to an Honorable, I have always heard that it will take a few attempts before they rule in favor. I guess they want to see if you are off the weed and are motivated enough to keep trying.
look i know i messed up. i just need serious job advice, not judgement.
... but the head officer over the program overruled them...
This industry is going to grow and it is going to be hurting for qualified people to run the plants in the very near future.
Would I encourage this guy to get cleaned up, get a Bachelor's and come back in about 5 years and try to get in, no. Sorry bro, but even my Dean said on the way to the classroom for civilian nuke, "If you fail a drug test, your career is over." I'm not gonna name names, but there were people in my class, and the one ahead of me, that had not so clean pasts. Everyone had already been cleaned up and were moving on when it came to nuke. I'm sorry man, but I would advise you going into Chemical engineering, something like that. Try to keep from getting a discharge, good luck.
Look, most people around here don't give pats on the head and we are all out of warm fuzzies to hand out. That being said, the first thing you have to figure out is why on earth you decided to light up in the first place, especially considering you know full well what the consequences would be and that you would eventually get tested. When you figure out the answer to that question, then you can start figuring out what to do afterwards. I don't know about the requirements at commercial plants as far as security clearances or if a drug discharge affects that or not, but I can guarantee that there are not a lot of nuclear related jobs that are going to look casually upon that sort of thing. Bottom line is, you knew the risk and you took it, and broke a major rule of engagement. You engaged in an activity that is illegal(despite what the current administration thinks of it) and you are going live with that choice. You came here for advice, you got some advice, and you got a lot of deserved flak for what you did. Now you can either get over it and move on, get your feelings hurt and leave, or something in between.
First off, using marijuana is not illegal. Only the possession of marijuana is illegal. This does not mean there are not consequences for using marijuana, just no legal ones. But anyways as everyone has said you knew the consequences and still decided to use. While marijuana is not addictive itself, rehab might still be a good idea to show any future employers that you have at least taken the steps to quit. Whether you actually do or not they won't know unless they can randomly drug test you as well.
How is having a J.D. necessary for this comment?
