I have a super old record from when I was a teenager like 10 years ago. I’ve been fishing for 5 years and want to switch my career. I had no problem getting my TWIC because all questions regarding felonies only applied to the last 7 years, I have nothing on my record in the span of 10. But I know from various posts I have came across that I will be required to mention everything when applying for my mmc. none of these convictions are for smuggling, no violence just property crimes (burglary, car theft) but what worries me is I have a misdemeanor for possession of a gram of marijuana. I understand that the coast guard pays special attention to this.
Has anyone had the EXPIERENCE, keyword here, not opinion, of how this process would work? Or known anyone in a similar situation.I know plenty of felons get their mmc. I’m just trying to understand some of the snags I will encounter. Will it be necessary to have documentation in regards to the convictions? Like drug classes for the possession charge? Or will the span of time make this unnecessary ? basically what should I expect to happen?
