beta blockers and polys

Hi guys

new to the forum, i am going to be taking a test for entrance to pd. the sad thing is i had some marijuana use in the past and thats scaring the life out of me. ive always wanted to be a po and its sad that this has to keep me from my goals.

anyways what have you guys heard about taking beta-blockers prior to the test (for those who are not familiar beta-blockers basicly slow down your heart rate its a high blook pressure medication used by all to regular heart rate and b/p.

also muscle relaxers...

any help is much appreciated, im really losing sleep over this and would love to hear some input.


thanks all

Razor,

     I am considering becoming a PO as well.  I have talked to a couple of recruiters who say that a little bit of MJ use isn't looked upon as a huge deal, as long as you're honest about it and the usage wasn't very recent.  You're worrying yourself over nothing.  Many PO's have used it in the past as well and some still do.

Razor,

I am repeating myself again with this advice, but here goes. Never walk into any interview or polygraph interrogation under the influence of any type drug. The polygraphers are trained to spot reactions or lack of reactions from the polygraph sensors, or through visual or verbal discourse. Download the Lie Behind the Lie Detector (TLBLD) from this website, read it cover to cover, especially multiple reads of chapters 3 & 4. Until the mental counter measures are second nature. Its possible because I practice them daily. And now are habit.  And know how to defeat the polygraph mentally. Your abilitiy to be successful is dependant on your mental state. The drugs will definately hinder you.  Good luck in your quest and don't sweat the polygraph, its a worthless piece of junk.  And not even valid by scientific scrutiny.   Good luck and good hunting

Regards

I took my polygraph on a prescribed beta blocker with the polygrapher's consent. My results were inconclusive. They didn't seem to care about the prescription though.

Yea, that's what we want, another police officer candidate who lies about illegal drug use, then wants to cheat his way through a polygraph exam.  Why don't you apply for a shopping mall security officer job?

And what have you ever done with your life that warrants such judgement and ignorance? The “quickfix” screen name certainly doesn’t do you any favors. Is it fair to deem you a loser? Because I most definitely think so.
