US Air Force and Drugs

The US Air Force is investigating illegal drug use among troops protecting a nuclear missile base.
Nuclear Missiles.

Really ehowton

Tell me it isn't so.
Well, it looks like the 90th Missile Wing is in a bit of hot water.
The probe is focusing on 14 enlisted airmen guarding the F.E. Warren Air Force Base near Cheyenne, Wyoming. The troops, assigned to the 90th Missile Wing, are under investigation for "illegal drug activity while off duty," General Robin Rand, commander of Air Force Global Strike Command stated.

In 2013, General Michael Carey was relieved of his position as head of the 20th Air Force -- responsible for three nuclear wings -- after he was reported binge drinking and fraternizing with "two foreign national women" during a trip to Russia.
Soon after, dozens of officers from the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana were suspended after they were found cheating on a routine test of their knowledge about how to operate missiles. Two were also implicated in a drug case. The Air Force uncovered the cheating when it was looking into illegal drug use on several bases.

Wow - crazy times in the Air Force.
