Well, I've got several clean UAs (all of them since late June), and I'm still in the waiting list for the parenting classes, but I guess my largest concern with the CHL issue is that even after demonstrating abstinence, completion of the ridiculous classes, etc., even after our daughter gets returned to us; do you think I'll be denied even after I've "jumped through" all of their "hoops"?
Yes, there's a good chance you'll be denied. There's a decent chance the denial will be overturned when you challenge it, and a good chance it'll be overturned on appeal.
That said, it also depends a bit on your sheriff's office, and how thorough they're background check is.
And I sympathise with your health plight; I wish that my condition could have been forgone, but were I to stop medicating myself with it (when I had the condition), I would likely have died, thus rendering this whole conversation moot.
Although it's now been a few years since I had an OMMP, is it the sort of thing that produces a lifelong legal stigma in terms of CHPs?
Unfortunately, it can be. At least until it gets truly legalized, which I'm pretty hopeful I'll see in my lifetime. And hey, I can't wait -- there's no denying the recreational benefits as well as the medicinal ones.
I'm trying to find information about the followup from the case, but I haven't had any luck yet. I'm sure it's just working it's way through the incredibly slow wheels of justice. Here's the story: http://stash.norml.org/oregon-county...juana-decision
