Has anyone been keeping up with the rule 3331? Or is anyone familiar with it? It is keeping me from being able to get licensed in Louisiana. Just a little background; I was arrested and convicted over 11 years ago of possession with intent to distribute meth (mind you I had a very miniscule amount and it was a stupid charge because I had an empty bag along with what I had) due to not being able to afford a lawyer I had a court appointed one. The charge should have been dropped or reduced but it wasn't. Anyway, since then I've graduated nursing school and been working in Texas. I completed a year's worth of stipulations for Texas which included random drug tests and quarterly evaluations. From what I understand from the LSBN newsletters is that they are changing something about the rule 3331, but it doesn't specify what or when. I'm just hoping it will work out in my favor so I can work in Louisiana.

Whoa, I in no way meant to trivialize anything. My point was that I wasn't drug dealing. It just got portrayed that way and if I would have had a decent lawyer it would have been dropped. I freely admit that I was doing drugs at the time. Since then I've been to rehab and have been cleared by a chemical dependency evaluator. That was nearly 12 years ago. So if you don't have any information on the question I asked then stay off the post.
