Eight AF Academy cadets disciplined after drug probe


AIR FORCE ACADEMY |  The Air Force Academy says at least eight cadets are being disciplined following an investigation into allegations of illegal drug use.

The investigation, which was announced in January, focused on 31 cadets.

The academy said Monday that eight have received non-judicial punishment, with two of them already dis-enrolled and with dis-enrollment pending for the other six.

Non-judicial punishment is pending for one more cadet, and a special court-martial is pending for another cadet.

The academy has published reports of investigation for two other cadets, who are awaiting a decision from commanders.

The investigations into six cadets are continuing.

Thirteen cadets have been cleared of allegations of substance abuse.

The Air Force prohibits the use of intoxicating substances, other than lawful use of alcohol or tobacco.
