PSH-12-0002 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

The individual has been employed by a Department of Energy (DOE) contractor since 1997, and has held a DOE access authorization for over 10 years. In October 2011, the individual tested positive for marijuana on a random drug test. The local security office (LSO) conducted a personnel security interview (PSI) with the individual in October 2011, and he admitted that he had used marijuana from 2007 to 2011 while in possession of a DOE security clearance. He also admitted that although he had certified on a January 2011 personnel security questionnaire that he had never illegally used a controlled substance while possessing a security clearance, he had been using marijuana since 2007.
