Hi, here is the link to a similar discussion. Hope you would find necessary information in it.

I guess it wouldn't be very easy but still I'd suggest you to stay honest whenever you're appearing for your license. In case you'd hide a serious conviction it might end up with the termination of your license at any point of time.

That's right, please stay honest and tell the truth on your application. Have an explanation of what happend and the correct dates of when this happened. Having and explanation is not to say that it will allow you proceed with the attainment of your life insurance liscensure, but it could allow you to get the right legal help you need and honest answers to your questions.
I have heard of people who have been dragged through circles for months thinking they could do something only to find out that a glitch from thier past was holding them back, and people were not giving the honest truth. But i wish you good luck and hope that everything works out good!

I've heard that because many of the laws regarding marijuana possession, etc. have evolved...it has become easier to get old charges reduced (not necessarily expunged). I do not know what your conviction was related to, but would suggest that you first talk with a lawyer and see if there is any possibility of improving your record.

The OP said:
a felony dealing marijuana

I realize it was dealing marijuana, but there are a number of felony convictions beneath the ambiguous term. For example, if one was caught within 100 yards of a school...there is NO chance of having it expunged. A lot also depends on the amount of marijuana in possession.

I think I'd be interested in knowing, how one can improve his record? What are the charges that can be erased from the record of the convict?

Most misdemeanors can be erased, and even some felonies can be reduced as far as the record goes. The process varies by state, but any local lawyer should be able to explain it and discuss the probability that it would actually go through. Felonies and convictions that involve bodily harm, assault, and any type of sex crimes are permanent.

But the fact of the matter is if the question on the application (likely) is: Have you EVER been convicted of a felony? even if it's removed...that doesn't negate the affirmative answer to this question does it? Because at one time 'yes' they were convicted of a felony..right?
