A conviction for a drug offense can have repercussions that may last a lifetime. The consequences of a conviction of a drug offense, even a misdemeanor, can lead to the loss of a job, loss of eligibility for student loan and grant benefits, loss of housing, the loss of ability to secure a government job, eviction from government housing, ineligibility for US citizenship (if not already a citizen), and that’s not even mentioning the direct consequences of a fine or imprisonment.
