    Default Deceptive application question

    So there is a dept out there with a lengthy application. On the application it has one page dedicated to drugs alone. One of the questions ask have you ever tried Marijuana? If you mark yes your fine but.... down at the bottom of the page it has a list of drugs with either check yes or no. THC is in this list and if you mark yes you are disqualified for good. When digging deeper the dept states that THC doesn't deal with marijuana and they are wanting to know if you have ever tried THC capsules. But it doesn't say that, so if you have fallen victim to this trap or have some insight please share. This isn't from my own personal experience but from firefighters from other depts.

    Sounds they need to clarify the questions. Not right!!

    I saw something like that on the Cincinnati PHQ.
