I am a student in the United States, well, I was. I was wondering if someone could help me with my current issue I am facing. I was charged with a felony for marijuana production but was convicted with a disorderly conduct in Norfolk, Virginia, in 2008. I was on a student visa (F-1) at the time. The problem that I facing is not when I was trying to get in and out of the country, but it was when I was trying to renew my visa to finish my studies. They told my that I wasn't eligible for visa because I played a part in drug trafficking. I just need a year on my student visa to finish my studies. I know it was foolish what I did, but I was young and wasn't thinking straight at the time. Can anyone advise me or help me on my current situation? Or even if it is possible to actually get a student visa?
Thank you for all your time,
I look forward to hearing what you have to say.
