Strong presentation of whole person concept evidence overcomes rebuttable presumption of knowing ingestion of unprescribed drug

NORTHWEST:  Applicant military officer tested positive for un-prescribed medication in unit sweep, leading to imposition of NJP, loss of career field, Board of Inquiry, Promotion removal action, and actions to revoke clearance under Adjudicative Guidelines H – Drug Involvement, and J – Criminal Conduct.  After presentation of case before Administrative Judge from the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA), Personnel Security Appeals Board concurred in finding of unknowing ingestion of medication and restored previously revoked clearance to client.
