Default K1 Visa Denied due to criminal record


I have recently attended my K1 visa interview at the US embassy in London and was, to my complete horror denied.

The reason was for a conviction that I received 8 years ago at the age of 19 for possesion of a very small quantity (less than 1g) of both cannabis and amphetamine.

Both myself and my fiance are extremely distraut about this. I did not expect this one and only conviction on my record to be a problem but it obviously is.

I have been given the opportunity to apply for a visa waiver which i was told would take 4-6 weeks to process from application.

I would appreciate any advice that anyone has for me on my chances of getting that waiver, how to write our statements to show a case of 'Exteme Hardship'. Or if there are any alternative means of me being granted a visa to enter the USA.
