I have a friend that i was just talking to that was charged with felony possession of marijuana in Tennessee in 2001. He wasnt a big drug dealer or anything, he just got set up by the drug task force by a friend that got caught selling coke.
Anyways, this guy has gotten lucky and has gotten some pretty decent jobs in that 9 year span some with big companies. He has a 4 year degree is very clean cut and has a very good resume and background in sales. He is probably one of the best salespeople that I know. Anyways he has been laid off from his job and cant find a job in this economy due to his background and the job market being so competitive right now.
It is funny beacuse this guy is one of the most straight laced, christian, all around good guy that I know. Does anyone have any advise for him? I just got off the phone with him and he is a wreck right now because he has a 1 year old daughter and wife. I didnt know what to tell the guy. Its messed up that a possession of marijuana charge from 9 years ago would keep someone from getting a job.
