A misdemeanor possession of marijuana conviction may prevent you from getting a gun permit. A convicted felon cannot possess a firearm or they will be charged with a felony and face a prison term. Retain a criminal attorney to consult with you and see if he can help you with this problem. Feel free to call me anytime.
