At a missile base in the United States found marijuana
The US Air Force is investigating cannabis at the Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota. According to preliminary information, the officer responsible for the control point for the launch of intercontinental ballistic missiles smoked marijuana at the post.
Cannabis was hidden in a pillow
On October 20, information appeared that one of the soldiers was caught smoking marijuana while serving, and jamb of cannabis was found in his pillow. The unit commander, allegedly, tried to hide the incident, fearing that he would be removed from his post. Gabriel Cushing, a spokesman for the military base, confirmed that a cigarette roll with marijuana was discovered in the barracks. He refused to provide additional information until the investigation was completed, but said that the Air Force leadership would punish all those responsible.
In May of this year, two officers were punished for drinking alcohol while serving on the Air Force base in Wyoming. Public relations specialist Joseph Coslett reported that the military consumed alcohol at the missile attack warning center and not at the missile launch control center, so they did not have access to nuclear weapons.
Guards of rocket launchers took LSD
On May 24, 2018, the U.S. Air Force leadership published a report on the results of an investigation into the incident that occurred at the Warren Air Force Base airbase in Wyoming. The document says that 14 military men who guarded mine launchers used and traded LSD, cocaine, and other drugs. Air Force spokesman Urai Orland hastened to reassure the population and said that all officers taking up the post pass alcohol and drug tests. Only sober people who can fulfill the order of the authorities and guarantee the safety of the facility are allowed to the service.
The military lost grenades and a machine gun
Last year, Minot Air Force Base base soldiers lost grenades for the Mk 19 automatic easel grenade launcher and the M20 machine gun. The base’s management said that weapons could fall out of an army SUV while driving between missile silos. More than 100 people took part in the special operation to search for a machine gun and grenades, they combed the area, but could not find weapons. Air Force employees awarded a reward of $ 5,000 for information on the whereabouts of the weapons, however, none of the local residents responded. As a result, the base commander, Colonel Jason Beers, was dismissed from the armed forces due to the loss of confidence.
