Can I still become a Border Patrol agent if I have smoked marijuana then stopped?

You will be asked that question during you're interview process. Be completely truthful because you will most likely be given a polygraph examination. But remember, if they only hired people that hadn't smoked marijuana they would have problems filling boots.

I think it depends on how long ago you stopped. If you stopped a week ago... probably not. :) but they can't hold your past against you especially if it was just marijuana. It's like saying you use to have a drinking problem but now you are sober. They can't hold it against you as long as you aren't smoking on the job.

As long as you were never charged for possession, you should be fine.

You probably wouldn't be able to become one if you DIDN'T.
