Drug Abuse in the Military

Personal drug abuse is the most common form of drug crime prosecuted in the military. In these situations, allegations are most often based upon one incident, as confirmed by urinalysis or possibly a blood test. Drug abuse may be considered a form of officer misconduct and therefore may result in an administrative discharge, but a service member may also face court-martial. In some cases a court-martial acquittal may be followed by misconduct discharge proceedings. Depending upon the case, the service member may face confinement, pay reduction, involuntary discharge, and more.
