Did they admit him in F-1 student status or they paroled him in? Did he admit to any drug use?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
They Paroled him in. Yes he admitted to drug use once.
Expert:  Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq. replied 7 months ago.

When he admitted the drug use, did he say when the last time was that he had used?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
He said:
"A Couple of weeks or Months ago "

That's unfortunate. I just ask that you not shoot the messenger. Shooting the messenger is either leaving a negative rating (usually reserved for rude or unprofessional experts) or not leaving a positive rating at all. Because he admitted to recent drug use, this makes him inadmissible to the U.S. However, he could apply for a 212(d)(3) waiver from inside of the U.S. to waive the inadmissibility. You can look at the following link to see the I-192 which is the form for the waiver:

You can find more information here:,0930-labrie.shtm

I recommend hiring an attorney to do the waiver to have the best change of success. You can look for one at
