I agreed to a guilty plea on a felony possession charge for a teeny amount and it was just a stupid circle of events that began with questioning my sanity and was found where the officer had no business looking. I only used on occasion too. Now, I must do a DEF program and be good for 18 months and it won't go on my record. However, I've been told if you try to apply to be a police officer you must disclose it. If you don't and it's not on your record, how would they know? I've also been told it does stay on your record for law enforcement, the state and federal to see. I don't want to get searched and harassed if I get pulled over because of it on my record. Also, I've been thinking about getting a real estate license. I've been told 2 separate scenarios by, I don't know how many.
