You can not make a past drug conviction go away ... ever. Not even if expunged. The only way to clear it is to get a pardon from the Governor of California.

It is possible to vacate the conviction if there was a defect under 1016.5 or Padilla. Additionally, if this was simple posession, an expungment would be good enough and then it would not be a conviction under immigration law. You need to see somebody who understands both criminal law and immigration law.
