I voluntarily checked myself into rehab for opiate abuse about 3 years ago and a doctor who met me literally for 5 minutes reported me to the ministry because I didn't want to stay in their facility. I received a letter shortly after informing me of the ministry's decision to take my license away for substance abuse indefinately.
I eventually left Toronto and moved up north and with the help of my family I was able to detox at home and am taking no opiates what so ever for the last year. That being said I was wondering about the rules regarding reinstatement. From my understanding you can do it alone without help from a doctor as long as you stay drug free for 1 entire year. My concern is that I occasionally smoke marijuana, but it has never been a problem and I only smoke it once or twice per week tops. I also go long periods without smoking any weed at all and this was not the reason that I lost my license for. My concern is that even marijuana recreationally may be used as evidence against me to continue to deny me my license back. Is this something that I should be concerned about? I am trying to setup an appointment with the doctor who will help me get my license back, but I want it to go perfect the first time.
