The completed Illegal Drug Use Statement (FAA-1415) form or notice contains one or more YES responses.
Government or law enforcement documents indicate the use of illegal drugs within the past 30 days by the participant.
Notification by any court that the participant is convicted of a misdemeanor or felony drug charge that does not disqualify them for CA.
