Hi there, Don't know whether I'm in the right place but here it goes. When I was 17 I was convicted of dealing drugs, something I'm not proud of but its on my record none the less... question I wanted to ask is can I still join the army? I am now 24 and the conviction is now spent, I have not been in any sort of trouble since and I am not the drug dealer my record suggests. Some people say as long as the conviction is spent then I will be able to join but some say anything to do with drugs is a lifetime ban from the army. Any advice will be of great help, Thanks.
