Love that part about being coerced to sell drugs. Here it is. Selling drugs is just that. Selling drugs. That's just about got to be a killer. The fact that you disclosed the truth at the end of the Polygraph does NOT mitigate the fact that you were less than truthful during the course of the exam. While you can minimize and dismiss your pharmaceutical career as youthful indiscretion, the fact remains that most sixteen year old s manage to avoid that situation. Oh yes, the polygraph is an interrogation tactic, and it seems to have served it's stated purpose in your particular case. Now as to "dumb comments" as you title them. Seems like you simply desire to hear only what you want to hear from us. That doesn't happen here, and you don't get to dictate the replies you receive. We do that. We're going to tell you the truth, no more, no less. You have to realize that you emerge as far less than an ideal or competitive candidate. You will not fare well against applicants who are also Honorably discharged veterans, and who don't bring your issues to the table. You will also finish far behind applicants, who while not Veterans, still don't bring your issues to the table. So, now that we've (I) have no doubt angered you with the truth, you might contact USBP for a more specific answer to your query. I'm certain they're simply dying to hear from you, so the sooner you contact them, the better they'll feel. You too. Call them today.

I would note however:
I recently took a polygraph with a agency and honestly, poly's are interrogation tactics.
Your less than artful dodge of the truth at the end of a polygraph DOES NOTmitigate the fact that you undoubtedly failed to fully disclose this illegal activity at numerous stages PRIOR TO said polygraph examination.
I would expect the thin letter to come in the mail any time now, though I personally think the government should save the stamp since they will be telling you what you already know. You Are Disqualified and Will Likely Never Be Considered By USBP Again. I would also add that your apparent pattern of untruthfulness portends of a lack of success in your quest for a position where trust is paramount.

It is all about telling the truth. No Police Officer is perfect, if we were, there would not be any. You should have been upfront in the beginning about that incident when you were 15 years old.
If you apply somewhere else, be honest and upfront, you will be surprised and what we understand.Drake Steele

I enjoy helping those that are considering a job in Law Enforcement as well as the newly sworn Officers.

Still having trouble owning up to what you have done in the past it appears. This is the very reason that polygraphs are used...to get you to tell the truth.
