Timeline

I have been pet ironed for a family base immigrant visa, and had my interview, with a consular officer, but my medical was not ready at that time,

However I got the white sheet that's says temporarily refused 221(g).

2 weeks later they recieved the medical and is been called in for a beneficiary interview at a soon date.

However I admitted to the doctor that I have use marijuana, and he sent me to see a psychiatrist for evaluation.

At the end of that evaluation process, I ask him to give me his findings and he told me I was good.

Now I am a bit shaken of this second interview.

Can you give me any advice please.

Whatever U do don't lie, the Drs will tell U its good

to go but they put U smoke weed in the report..If

U R called in for beneficiary review its for a reason, most likely

that, tell them what you told the Dr, quit smoking, the

most likely thing is a one yr wait (Oct 2015) U reschedule

a new interview, get a new medical and if clean U R ok

or the CO gives U a break on being honest (just saying)

good luck

Usually a one year ban, but they can let you slide if you did it once, just once, and more than five years ago.

If you get the ban, they will refer you to counseling and give you drug tests once every three months. Cooperate with the counseling, pass all the drug tests, and then you will be good to go.

This means avoid all exposure to marijuana smoke. If someone lights up at a party, leave immediately. Don't risk breathing in any second hand smoke.

Don't flunk this second chance because then you will be done forever.

There will not be a second chance in Jamaica - It will be a one year ban - Even if you admit that you tried it once it will be a ban. Jamaica does not play around with this or let it slide. Be greatful it's a one year ban - it used to be three

Is there a chance your petition can get approved even if you used marijuana once 9 years ago?

Hope to hear from you.
