    For the love of god do not listen to the don't worry about it or the cops or judge smoked too so it wont be a big deal dog shit advice ppl are giving. Be as proactive as you can as soon as you can and hope the school and the state don't come down on you too harshly.

    actually a lot of states don't give public defenders for misdemeanors anymore.

So now you think you are owed something and you don’t have to work for it and now you’re on a really bad road to nowhere because there are people who will play to that sense of victimhood, aggrievement and entitlement, and you still won’t have a job.” - Condoleezza Rice

    Stop listening to people tell you what's going to happen. Every single state has different laws regarding the penalties based on the amount of drugs you had in your possession. GET YOURSELF A LAWYER, do NOT listen to advise of people on the internet. Moreover, anything you say can be used against you regardless of your pleading guilty or not. If the state finds out that you're posting about your little tryst on the net that can copy that and use it against you.

    You committed a crime. Get a LAWYER. The state will fuck you, that much you can be assured of. It doesn't matter if you've ever committed a crime or not.

    I live in Utah, a half an ounce of pot is a felony in the 3rd degree - 1-5years in fucking state prison and a 5000 dollar fine. That's serious, get a goddamn lawyer and don't fuck around with your future.

    No, you can get accused of distibution, to get hit by it they got to prove it.

    Anyway,i wouldnt worry to much mate,if its your first offence there normally give you scare tactics and a slap on the wrist
    It will always be in the public defenders record that you went to court for it. It will more than likely be a suspended sentance with forced rehab. Maybe 1 year probation. Just dont lie. You get caught in a lie the judge will be a dick. It will go on your record for a year. If you do get it on your record it can be expunged after 7 if you dont commit anymore crimes either way.

    Dumb mistake is a dumb mistake but you did do it. You knew the consequences before hand, not really responsible to beg for a way oit.

    The only stupidity I see is in societies' archaic drug laws.

    Sadly this is a State by State situation, if you are in Arizona your screwed, if you are in the North East not so much. Basically Red State you will have problems and might need a real lawyer, blue state you might get a verbal warning.

    Fantastically stupid. Imagine someone busted for owning 6 sixpacks of beer. Or a box of cigarettes. Absurd, isn't it?
    Yet alcohol and tobacco are drugs equally dangerous & addictive as cannabis.

    I wonder when politicians worldwide will get their priorities on the so-called "drug wars" right.

    American Bashing aside, OP start rehab and put some effort into it, do community outreach programs and church activities. Make a effort to clean up your act such as getting a job a nice haircut and a wear a suit (with light colors) when you go before the judge. If he sees that you are making positive changes to your life because of this "wakeup call" he may drop it.


    Note, i am not a lawyer, or batman

    Edit Listen to this man/woman

    Sadly he is right, if you want to buy sex in the USA you have to go to Nevada out in a desert or risk going to jail. If you want to smoke weed you risk going to jail unless your in a couple of states, if you want a gun just pay the money.

    No it's not. In Utah a half ounce of pot is a Class B Misdemeanor. At most 6 months in jail and a 1000 dollar fine. For most states anything under a quarter of a pound is a misdemeanor. In Utah you can have up to a pound before it becomes a felony.

    You need to talk to a lawyer. From the state where you were busted. Whether it's one appointed to serve you or one you hire, is up to you. Expungment laws vary from state to state. For example, i know of a state where you could have that expunged, but you'd then be unable to have anything else expunged for a number of years, so be aware of that possibility. But talk to a lawyer, from that state.
