There’s no such thing as a “minor” criminal conviction when it comes to drugs. For example, a misdemeanor conviction for possessing less than 2.5 grams of marijuana could lead to a $1,500 court fine, a jail sentence of up to 30 days, one full year of ineligibility for federal student loans or grants, and significant employment and housing-related consequences that will last much longer than that in all likelihood.
