    Answered . The medical exam includes questions regarding drug and alcohol use. It is the discretion of USCIS (and perhaps the doctor) whether or not to actually perform hair or blood analysis to detect a particular controlled substance.

    This is a very sensitive aspect of immigration law, and if you feel the need to ask these questions you have the need to hire an attorney to present your case and determine whether you may need a waiver of admissibility.

    Remember, all answers given to USCIS are sworn statements given under penalty of perjury (a federal crime).

    Answered . A drug problem is grounds to deny you status, or take it away if granted. If you cannot remain straight through this process, you may have a problem. I am in not judging, just warning.
