How far back do companies go for background checks in California?

I am curious because I am applying for a job and I have criminal background that goes back to the year 1979 to 1989. These were felony charges for possession of a controlled substance. And basically I am wondering if this will hurt my chances with this company. I recently retired from another multi million dollar company that insured me and bonded me for $2 million dollars. For arguements sake, was wondering if that even matters.
