Permit denied because of marijuana conviction


Guy called me yesterday because his gun permit application was denied. He has no convictions and his only criminal issue was a marijuana charge which was resolved by way of a conditional discharge. In addition, he successfully completed the conditional discharge program. Nevertheless, he was denied. His first question was, how is this legal? It is because they can use anything in your past regardless of a conviction or whether it was even reported to police to deny your permit. His second question was, why didn’t I use you in the first place?
