This comes up on occasion and people seem to get some sort of internal struggle about just admitting their use of drugs, or that they have used them in the past like it will somehow make people think they are more honest, or something. Sure they might, but do you really think any of these people want to KNOW this about you? Of course they don’t.
Save it for the people that could actually help you. Like you know the people you do drugs with…err I mean your family and friends. The only thing that that talking about drugs with authority figures, or people that could have something to do with your income, grades, etc. can do is make you look like a loser.
Have you ever used marijuana, or any other illegal drugs?
Tell me now. Why would you answer this question honestly on an application, in an interview, IN CLASS, or when you are getting arrested for being drunk? The correct answer is: YOU DON’T. First of all, its’ against your rights, and your privacy, but most importantly it does you absolutely no good to answer that you have.
Nobody wants to hear about how you got so high on acid that you ran around the neighborhood in nothing but your snow boots shouting about how you can see Double Rainbows making love to a human centipede. This is not impressive, and certainly not funny to anyone that holds your future in their hands.
Moral of the day: Drug use is likely illegal where you live. Nobody is going to give you a medal for admitting that you have “experimented” with drugs when you are arrested, when you are talking in class, or when you are talking to your boss at work.
