    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.
