    It appears that you have been given what is called a "Notice to Appear" for a misdemeanor marijuana charge. You will want to take your case step by step. First, I would recommend speaking with a criminal defense lawyer about how you were stopped and searched by the police. Often, 4th Amendment issues appear in cases where a car is jointly occupied (no pun intended). If no legal issue arise in your case you may be eligible for a diversion program, this is run by the prosecutor's office and allows for you to have your case dismissed if you do certain things like pay a fine, do community service etc. Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have further questions. Jeremiah
