    The drug offence is a bit of a tricky one and not sure how it will go down...I was on a night out got completely wasted for some unknown reason bought these drugs...next thing I know I woke up in a police cell, charged with being drunk and disorderly and in possession of class A.

    Since then I've limited myself to what I drink and where I go, unfortunate as it may seem, what possibly seemed like a really good idea at the time has had many many undesired consequences.

    SC is mostly around honesty and financial status. Are you a liar and can you be bribed.

    Tell the truth and fingers crossed you get it. I have just gone through my 3rd renewal. Every time they drag up the past..

    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. But Gandhi never had to deal with HMRC

    Depends on the drug.

    Well, I wouldn't give you SC based on the drunk and disorderly cocaine buying. I'd be worried about the consequences of your spontaneous actions . However, the more fair side of me thinks "heck, probably a one off, we all make mistakes" - so gawd knows. Apply for the SC anyway and see how it goes.

    I think honesty is the key - after all, you're not going for DV but SC.

    What the security check needs to ascertain is whether you are trustworthy or could be subject to external pressure. If you fail to disclose criminal history and they discover it, it would have been the kind of information that, potentially, would leave you open to blackmail. The drugs issue, however, I'm less sure about... I mean, how would the SC process know if this was a one-off as you claim, or the result of a massive daily habit?
