You'll have to run that by your Recruiter. I'm not all that sure whether you'll be allowed to enlist. You can't enlist if you're in probation so in your case your probation would still be in effect at the time of enlistment. In that case your probation wouldn't be set aside. Even if it were I'm still not sure you could enlist with your record. The Army is getting harder to join every month it seems.

Arrested for possession of MJ (10 grams) --"yes" for 10 grams

I was arrested for possession of "10 grams of marijuana." I was in the recruiting process and when the recruiter found out this occurred, he said I was disqualified. However, when I spoke to close friends parents who are in the US Army and have been recruiters, they said that was not true since I never went to the MEPS or the Security Background wasn't done. I already completed the ASVAB and have scores to enter the US Army, but want to know what's the deal with me being disqualified. Should I go and see another US Army recuriter? Thanks

Your friends parents brothers

Your friends parents brothers sisters friends are wrong. Your recruiter told you right, you're done. You'd require a waiver and the Army is NOT giving out waivers for drugs, period.

It's amazing...

...how little serving Soldiers know about the latest recruiting policies. All they can go by is what they were when they joined, not the way it is now. I've seen many radical changes in those policies in jut the last year with changes occurring almost monthly. Just go by what a Recruiter has told you. He'll have all of the latest rules.

It can't hurt to contact another (or the same) Recruiter. It's always possible there's been a change but these days if there was a change it would be even harder to get in. Cutbacks & a poor civilian job picture has made the Army very selective in who it lets enlist.

Another instance of what you've done in the past can come back to bite you in the ass.

Waiver for Drug Possession (10 gms)

I know and regret it now. If the charges are dismissed, you think that would that change anything?

If the charges are dropped

If the charges are dropped completely and you don't have to serve any sort of probation or sign up for any programs to get it dropped then you might have a chance to join. If you get any charge from this even it's expunged years down the road the Army will still be able to see it when you go to enlist and you won't be able to.

There's really nothing yOu

There's really nothing yOu can do. If he said you are dq then he's right. Now with the buglery you can not join with that charge.
