    Default applying for the police force - help

    Hi .. I have been thinking about applying for the police force for a number of years and I thought it's about time I started the process.. but there's one issue I've come across when looking at the paperwork ...id love some advice or answers for those with insight.

    the situation is...

    the ask for a form to release all you medical records...

    that's all well and good...

    then I remembered... 4 years ago I had mentioned to my gp that (at the time I had a small problem with an illicit drug not iv) ...after mentioning that to my gp I stopped using the drug and haven't since
    so that is my problem. .... will this prevent me from being accepted in the police force provided everything else was ok? that on my medical records it states was using an illicit drug? ?

    I'm really stressed and now feel this will ruin any future plans of joining the police force.

    advice or anything would be appreciated. sorry if this is in the wrong place...I didn't know where to post.

    I'm a long time hubber but too embarrassed to use my usual name. TIA

    I shouldn't think so. Honestly is definitely the best policy. When DP applied, she said she had dabbled in MJ for a while in her youth but didn't take any drugs now.

    She passed her blood screening and got accepted. She's been in the force almost 5 years now.
