Can I get evicted if my landlord finds out I had a drug charge?

I've paid my rent on time every month for 3 years. Recently had a drug charge for marijuana and they're about to do background checks on everyone. Now I live in a small town where everyone has had a run in with the police. My apartment has trouble keeping people as it is and they know us by name and like us. Based on this, will we get kicked out?

    There are exactly ZERO such towns in the US.

    Most leases include provisions that allow eviction if you commit crimes on the premises. That doesn't mean they WILL seek to evict for low level offenses.
