    printer friendly version

    Question: If I got busted with weed what the worse that could happen?

    Answer:

    If you are prosecuted in juvenile court, you can be placed on probation or sent to the Department of Juvenile Corrections up to your 18th birthday, and your driver's license would be suspended until your 18th birthday. It can leave a felony on your record, which may affect your later ability to get scholarships, federal benefits like welfare or public housing assistance, or jobs requiring security clearance. The military also has strict rules about accepting candidates with drug histories. You may be unable to enlist unless the branch you select thinks enough time has passed that you are no longer high risk to abuse substances again.

    If you are prosecuted as an adult, the court must place you on probation and require that you attend substance abuse counseling. It can leave you with a felony record, which has many of the same consequences as those listed above. If you reject probation, you can be required to serve time.

    absolutely none of my posts have been cleared, and every single one of them was well thought out and well-written. This is a joke.

    A few things here (Aodhfin) from NE said:
    The punishments listed here are all true, but what they do not specify is the severity of the infraction. Since the question was vague, they were able to provide an exxagerated response: I.E. if you were caught with 1/8 ounce of pot (30 dollars worth or so) you would be slapped for a fine, and if underage, your parents might be called. Now, if you were caught with a large amount of pot (over 150 dollars or so) or, perhaps, were caught distributing, the penalty above would be more likely. (ps.to everyone saying 'pot kills' do a bit of research.. talk about dramatization, sheesh.)
