(Washington, DC) -- Despite Colorado's legal marijuana industry, drug use could still keep recruits out of the military. U.S. Representative Mike Coffman tells the "Colorado Springs Gazette" there used to be waivers for smoking pot, but those are drying up. Military budget cuts have led to fewer recruits being accepted. Coffman is a member of the House Armed Services Committee. He says the standards aren't likely to change. Recruits are required to disclose any drug use.
