    hi guys-
    when i was 17 (two years ago now) i was caught with a very small amount of cannabis, arrested for it, interviewed, and was given a reprimand. not a caution or taken to court and convicted, just a reprimand. now, im going to south africa soon and wondered if this is going to affect my chances of entry? i havnt had to apply for a visa but will they be able to see it as i pass through passport control? also, will it have been wiped by now as im now nearly 19?
    thanks/

    Shouldn't do, guys at Johannesburg airport do like to give the 'pale' guys a hard time on occasions but will always let you in.
