First let me start off by saying I have a marijuana posession charge on my record from 2004/2005. I no longer smoke marijuana (or drink for that matter). I live in vancouver and work in portland. I have my washington CPL. I was under the impression that having a misdemeanor of any sort would stop me from getting a concealed license for Oregon. I was reading the multnomah county application form and it asked if I have had a misdemeanor in the past 4 years (no). Next it asks if I have had a drug related misdemeanor followed up by questions relating to if I still do drugs (which i don't). My question is does a Marijuana posession misdemeanor charge (atleast 7 years ago) bar me from getting an oregon concealed license? What if I go and have it expunged? I know that I would also have to write a letter stating my case which to me seems simple enough because i work in portland (the druggie corner/hang out is litteraly right accross from my work drive way. They trespass onto the property to take ciggerette butts/sleep in the garbage area etc. There was also a woman raped on the stairs of my work place. Seems like a better case than most would have for just traveling/work). I could not find any information related to this specifically online. Any help would be much appreciated. I understand the responsibility of posessing a firearm and take it very seriously. Please understand that this was in the past and I have moved on. Thanks again for any information you are able to provide.
