Would I be able to work for the State Department or CIA even though I was arrested as a minor?

I live in New Jersey and when I was 17 years old I was arrested for intent to distribute marijuana and possession of paraphernalia. I took part in pre-trial intervention and I was put on probation for a year, lost my license for 45 days, and paid about $2,000 in fines. I have not yet had my case expunged. I am wondering if I would pass the security clearances necessary to work in the CIA or U.S. State Department.

    Thats a hard one buddy. Not so sure, you can check the info out on the CIA webpage- www.cia.gov

    I plan on trying to get into the CIA as well after the military.
