I want to join the armed services with a secret clearance requirement. The problem is that I have a dui (marijuana)/poss (marijuana) diversion. This took place in Oregon but I live in California. At that specific time I was going to college in Washington. Will this be likely to show up on an FBI background check?

An FBI background check is nation wide, so the fact that it occurred in another state is not going to conceal it. Sometimes it is best to just present the facts to the recruiter and let them suggest what might be needed.
