FAQS ABOUT DRUG CRIMES
Q: Will I be able to get a job after committing a drug crime?
A: Depending on the desired job, having a record with illegal drugs can affect potential employment drastically as many employers run background checks, ask about previous crimes on applications and may be wary to hire someone with crime on their record. In addition, having a permanent record of drugs may also affect your ability to buy or rent homes, be approved for car loans, etc. requiring background checks.
Q: If I am caught with drugs, will it be on my permanent record?
A: Although it is common for drug crimes to be added to your permanent record, you may be able to file for expungement to prevent this.
