4. Illegal Drugs
Drugs illegal in the U.S. are illegal in Japan. While there may be a temptation to experiment, its not worth the loss of your career, or the risk of either Japanese or American prison.
While some substances may not be illegal on the local economy, they are illegal for us.
NCIS is an active participant in the Japan/U.S. counter-narcotics effort, and Japanese authorities often maintain prosecutorial jurisdiction in drug offenses.
Alcohol often plays a significant role in bad decisions individuals make which result in NCIS felony investigations. If you choose to drink, on or off-base, be responsible.
Dont let alcohol become a problem. If you see a situation getting out of hand with a service or family member
Walk the talk, Be your brothers keeper.
