    Speak Up! - View Question #538


    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.

    there is no evidence that marijuana use leads to promiscuous sex. it there were, then that would still not be any reason to make it illegal. look at alcohol, its the date rape drug of history and its goin strong. as for car wrecks, drinking and driving is illegal, they would make smoking and driving illegal too. there is just no hamr in sittin in ur house and smoking weed. none. and if it is bad for you, who cares; so is chocolate and fast food. you dont' see any bans on those things. marijuanna use just isn't teh goverments business.
