How will drug use affect my eligibility?

Inpatient treatment for substance abuse is preclusive for three (3) years from the last date of treatment unless you present of a certified statement from a licensed physician stating that you have been free from substance use for twelve (12) months or more preceding the filing of an application for a handgun license.

A misdemeanor conviction relating to illegal drug use or possession is a 10-year preclusion. A pending charge or deferred sentence or deferred prosecution will result in denial of your license application for 3 years from the final determination of the matter.  For more information see SDA and Medical Marijuana.
