    (1) Would a prosecutor still want to pursue the case (which includes charges of conspiracy and mail fraud), if marijuana was suddenly legalized nationally - very likely, the prosecutor would continue to pursue the case; (2) If marijuana were suddenly legalized nationally, would all those currently imprisoned on related charges be released - no. The charges that she is fleeing were brought under the existing law.

    As a general observation: really, you’re asking a rhetorical question because you already know the answer. Just from the general facts you've provided, your case is not simple. At minimum, you need to consult with an experienced attorney, licensed in your jurisdiction, about the specific facts and details of the case. Don’t delay; it is highly advisable that you meet with an attorney as soon as you can. Once you've met with a local lawyer about your case the case you should be better able...

    Clearly you are stressed and concerned about your case. However, as a general observation - too much detail for a post in a public forum; your case is pending. Be very careful about what you are posting. Next general observation - talk to you lawyer about your concerns. The answers in this forum can only provide you general information; none can really address the specifics of your case. Speak with your lawyer, who is licensed in the jurisdiction in which you're charged.

    Generally the formatting for docs, such as court filings, are found in rules of procedure, including state rules of procedure (or federal rules of procedure), and sometimes local court rules. With regard to other docs (like birth certificates), probably in the agency's policies and procedures.
