I am a Florida...

I am a Florida resident with an extensive background in Horticulture. IN 1986 I received a felony conviction. I have a job offer to work in a legally licensed Marijuana grow operation in Oregon. Will my felony conviction prevent me from being employed in the state of Oregon

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?

The state is Oregon and In 1986 I caught my best friend and finance together and I shot and killed him. I pled to second degree murder and did 10 yrs. I was released in 1997. I have no other convictions.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

What do you mean? Filed or reported? Of course my conviction is on file!

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No just that one question? Will my 1986 felony conviction in Florida prevent me from being employed in a legal marijuana grow operation in the state of Oregon
