I have a misdemeanor(possession of marijuana). I chose to not do probation and get the charge whiped from my record because I was planning on moving; knowing that would affect the situation.

If you have a qualifying medical condition and a physician believes that medical marijuana could help alleviate your medical condition, then you can get a medical marijuana card. A criminal conviction does not bar you as a patient.

Yes. You ban get a chard. However, if you are still on the deferred status under 7411, the court may violate you if you don't let them know in advance. Also, some judges don't allow the use of medical marijuana while on deferred status. Check with the court.
