What misdemeanor will hinder me from obtaining a pharmacy tech license?

Depending on your state, it could be a number of things. You'll want to call the Board of Pharmacy and ask.
As far as what the PTCB
looks for, that's anything which has happened within the last five years. From what I've been told when I've called and asked, special attention is paid to offenses involving substance abuse (including alcohol). However, it is still worth checking with the PTCB, as they look at each situation and decide based on other factors. It is at their discretion, so if it's something not involving drugs and was years ago or before you were 18, plead your case.
