Default Obtaining a California painting contractors license with criminal convictions

I want to apply for a c-33 painting license in California, however, I have a pending expungement of a marijuana conviction. Has anyone been accepted with a drug conviction? If so, how long after the conviction did you apply/be accepted?

Is it a felony or misdemeanor?

Cant say for sure but a misdemeanor shouldn't be an issue as long as you list it when you apply.

Nope. That's just a spurious stereotype spawned from seriously substantial sinsemilla smoking.

I wouldn't worry about it. Apply. It shows good intent. Besides, A city beuracracy that prides itself on protecting criminal illegal aliens, shouldn't get their corsettes all in a cinch over a pot head trying to get his sh!t together. And neither should the State officials who often come from SF.

Man you Californians are so far behind the times. Don't criticize it, legalize it!
