    have missed something.  I glanced at it but didn't see any reference to drugs.  Seems to me that your scenario would be very difficult to prosecute (not impossible but maybe prohibitively difficult). Silly question really.

      •  Thanks. I went back and looked. (0+ / 0-)

        I always hedge my bet when it comes to what I've read - I skim way too quickly.

        Still it's a silly question really.  And to prosecute based on that question would be impractical. You would have to prove that at the time of signing the statement was false.

          if they backgrounded more thoroughly on the heels of filling out the 4473 and discovered a misdemeanor marijuana conviction, someone could be arrested and piss tested....like i said, I was taking the argument to an extreme, deliberately.
          Food for thought.

          •  Yes - I understand that. (0+ / 0-)

            And yes I would say that a prior conviction could lead that way.
