Will I be drug tested immediately following a court ruling or will there be a time frame to get clean? (Illinois- Cook County)

Asked 9 months ago - Chicago, IL

First offense, class 4 felony cannabis possession. Case has been assigned to a courthouse for one week from now. I'm worried that this will not be enough time to clean my system. What are the odds of the ruling being given on the first trial date as well as the odds of being tested right away? I'm not sure if I will be told to clean up and come back in a month if I'm convicted, or if they will tell me to turn around and go get tested immediately.

    Answered . Many factors determine if you will be required to drop on the next court date. Consult with your attorney ASAP. It is early in the case several approaches will be available to you, but start preparing now by anticipating the drop. That means don't use. If this is a difficulty then consider other treatment alternatives.
