Drugs and Alcohol

If you want to be a cop, don't do drugs.  Even marijuana.  Even if it's legal to use it in your state.  Even if all your friends and relatives do it, don't use marijuana.  Nothing good will come from it, and most agencies won't hire you, even if it's legal to use it.

If your friends and relatives use drugs, drop them.  Don't hang out with them anymore.  If they live with you, move out.  Even if it's only sometimes, even if it's only once in a while.  It will eventually get you into trouble.  No agency wants you to spend time with drug users.

If you drink alcohol, stop.  While it is legal to use alcohol, and many officers do, it is possible to get in trouble using it.  A single 12 ounce bottle of beer with lunch, or a single 4 ounce glass of wine once or twice a week is okay, but working on your car on Saturday and drinking a six pack is not a good idea; that's what the SGT Says.
