USAF investigates drug use at nuclear missile base...again


Associated Press - February 12, 2020

CHEYENNE, WY - Air Force officials say airmen responsible for security at a strategic nuclear missile base are under investigation for marijuana use, which is illegal in the military.

The officials are declining to disclose the number under investigation or provide other details, but they say the four-star general in charge of Air Force nuclear weapons flew to the base to hold a “no-notice” meeting to address the alleged misconduct by members of the 90th Security Forces Group.

“When any of us see those not living up to our high standards, we will hold them accountable, using all of the disciplinary tools available under the military justice system,” the general said in a release.

This is the same group in which investigators in 2016 cracked a drug ring involving the distribution and use of LSD, cocaine and other illegal drugs.

The airmen are tasked with protecting the base proper, as well as 15 missile alert facilities and 150 Minuteman III nuclear missiles across a three-state region.
