    printer friendly version

    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.

    i'm getting expelled from school because i was in a car with a friend who got caught with weed...this is a messed up society. its a fricken plant. you can go out to bars and get drunk and get into fights and go to jail, but you can't go home, smoke a joint, and go to bed???

    dude i was expelled from 9th grade in the fall for selling weed...i was able to return for second semester. I was recently in a friends car and the principle caught him with weed. so i got re-expelled. this time i cannot go back to school. i think that a plant that is grown. should not be considered a negative in society today. Its more of a personal remedy that people choose in their lives to get through the day.
