Hello everyone!

I've been offered a contract by the AYC program to teach English in Thailand. About three weeks ago, I was charged with possession of marijuana, which is a misdemeanor in Virginia. I acquired the services of a very good lawyer, and since I'm a first-time offender who barely had a joint at the time of apprehension, I've received the impression that I probably won't be convicted, and that the charges will at least be reduced considerably.

However, I'm still curious. If I was convicted of the misdemeanor, would the Thai agency terminate my contract? The contract says that it can be terminated if a background check reveals a felony charge, which seems to exonerate me. However, I know Thailand has very strict marijuana laws. What do you guys think?
