What is the name of your state? GA

Just a quick question.. I have been looking at applying to government jobs, and most of them have a security clearance associated with them. I have smoked weed once about a year ago and most websites say if you have done any of that , that you are pretty much denied a security clearance... I am just curious if I should bother applying to gov. jobs.. or if someone can fill me in a little better of what the security people take into consideration, since I am a model citizen beside that.. Oh and one last question.. does my situation matter for all three types of clearance (confidential, secret and top secret)
