Why did you agree to take the polygraph?

If in the US they can't do that (w/o a court order which they would not get solely based on the way you are describing the situation).

The right answer would have been to not take the polygraph test at all and not to talk to them.
I wanted to keep my job. I didn't want the cops to find my weed (campus housing) and maybe get kicked out of college. Nobody had threatened to fire me and I may well have made the wrong decision. But I was very easy to replace and the condominium was full of paranoid rich people with lots of time on their hands.
