    A waiver may be available for removability on criminal grounds under Section 212(h). This waiver is for a one-time violation involving the possession of >30 grams of marijuana for personal use. In your case, you state that there have been three such incidents. An alien is eligible for a waiver under section 212(h)(1)(a) if the crime was committed 15 years prior to the date of application for admission or adjustment, if I am not mistaken. Would that be the case?

    A waiver is also available under Section 212(h)(1)(b), if the alien is a spouse, parent or child of a USC or LPR and if denial of admission or adjustment would cause extreme hardship to the relative.
    I'd suggest securing the assistance of an immigration attorney familiar with 212 waivers. In my opinion, it seems your only option would be to seek a waiver under INA Section 212(h)(1)(b), in which case you'd need to demonstrate extreme hardship to your spouse.
