I have an old minor drugs conviction (possession of pot) from 8 years ago when I was a student. I am looking to go on my honeymoon to the US and travel throughout for 3 weeks.

I am looking for any advice on the current visa situation - i.e will I get into the country?

Many Thanks

With a valid passport there should no be a problem. I know of several who have done worse than that and do not have any trouble traveling.

getting in for residence would be harder to do thought.

The only one who can really answer this question is the U.S. customs and immigration service. Contact the local American embassy and find out what they say. Check out this thread: Getting into the USA with a drug conviction.
