    Only a lawyer who has reviewed all the evidence and the law of your case could begin to answer your question. It is impossible to guess based on the limited information provided. If you don't have a lawyer, get one. If you have a lawyer talk to that lawyer.

    There is not enough information here to guess at an answer for your question. The important thing is that you are charged with a felony and need a lawyer to represent you, get one right away. That lawyer could tell you why the court is not moving forward. If you cannot afford to hire a lawyer, ask the court to appoint one for you, this is too complex a situation to handle on your own.

    You should expect to have a lawyer help you with this case. Felony drug charges are serious, and you will not be able to fight this on your own. If you cannot afford a lawyer, you should ask the court to appoint one for you. You should not plead guilty if you do not think you committed an offense.

    You can try, but the law is not likely to change anytime soon. If you apply early, you will probably be denied.
