    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 don't think that the school should find out about it because it's none of their business. And another reason they shouldn't know is because if they find out, their going to give you a drug test to find out if your really doing drugs or not. LOL

    If I may suggest: A few arguments and intelligent points fighting for one side or the other in this situation are due to satisfy a greater whole; "Weed is retarded" and "Weed is cool" are not valid points. One could specfically mention the damaging effects weed has on a person, or to position one's self in the opposite viewer's stance, a recollection to the effects weed has on the body and mind, as well as the damage it does not cause. Personally, I feel that weed is a small problem compared to the physically addictive and disabilitating effects 'harder' drugs such as heroin or
