Adoption in America is so hard, it takes forever, some people wait two years or more. They put you through the ringer and then some. I would see what the application asks for, if you werent ever arrested or have any medical history of drug use, on paper, I wouldn't tell them, its none of there business. You are drug free now and that is what counts, congratulations and keep up the "great" work.  Sorry I must have been brain cramping. Your question did mention a conviction. Anyway, give it your best shot and check around to quite a few agency, some may be more lienent then others. Good luck.
