    If you have been convicted and sentenced to a penalty which results in a permanent mark on your criminal record, as opposed to some form of expungeable probation or court diversion program, you may lose financial aid.

    I doubt for a pot conviction, that you would be denied admission to a college.

    You should ascertain what effect this "conviction" has on your ability to expunge or seal the record of this case, which you can find out from the Clerk of Court in the county where the case was handled, and if it cannot be expunged, ask the financial aid people if this will affect your chance to get the student loan.
