    Question: I was caught with Marijuana by the police. Will my school and job find out that I am guilty of possession of marijuana?

    Answer: There is nothing in the law that requires notification of either schools or employers for conviction for possession of marijuana. If you are a minor, your criminal record won't be made public. Adult criminal convictions, however, are public record.

    An employer may require disclosure of a conviction, so if they ask, you may have to reveal that you were convicted of drugs. Also, conviction may prevent a person from getting student loans. Finally, if you are applying for school admission, there may be questions concerning criminal convictions.

    Keep in mind that the Constitution makes a presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Also, you may be able to negotiate a plea agreement with the prosecutor in your case to a misdemeanor rather than a felony, which will help in the long run.

    Somebody called the police on us when we was parked in the dark. There was 3 of us, and obviously all of us were smoking. My friend had a warrant and I had 3 bags. They ask if we had anything, and of course we can't lie. They was thinking about giving me a warning but somebody already made the call. So they let my friends go because they didnt have the weed and sent me to jail, where the bail was only $40 and I had to go to court the same day. My case was dismissed for $200. I don't park and smoke no more lol
