Special UCMJ rules apply for military drug charges

Military members are held to a different standard when it comes to possessing and using illegal drugs. While there are many drugs that are illegal for civilians to possess or distribute, it is not necessarily illegal in many states for civilians to be found with those drugs in their bodies. Military members, however, can face drug charges under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, or UCMJ, for testing positive for any type of drug that alters mind, mood, body or ability to function.
