Can i still smoke marijuana on pretrial probation if i have a medical marijuana license?

Lynn, MA |

I started off with no drug screens. then my name was mentioned in a police report stating that i had small bag of marijuana on me. i never caught a new charge or citation. so when i went back to court they brought the police report up that had my name in it. so i was ordered to do random screens because of that. Now i got my medical marijuana license.

You state that the Judge ordered random screens. I am going to assume that the Judge ordered you to remain drug (and possibly alcohol) free. Your medical marijuana license does not permit you to violate your probation. So if the Judge ordered your to remain drug free then you cannot use marijhuana, notwithstanding the fact that you have a license to use it. It would be similar to a judge ordering someone who has a driver's license not to drive as a condition of probation. If you want to use marijhuana and you have a valid license to use it, you can go back to the Judge and ask the Judge to modify your probation to allow you to use marijhuana.
