My neighbors smelt pot and called cops and when they came they asked if we had any weed left and we gave it to them and I got a marijuana possession charge but wasn’t arrested just must appear in court. They asked what company I rent through and said I could be evicted. Will I be evicted?
Your first issue is to handle the criminal charge, it would be smart to get a criminal defense lawyer to help you. As to the rental issue, most rental agreements contain a clause that allows the landlord to kick you out for any disturbance, violation of the law, etc.
