Yesterday I was stopped for a broken headlight. I did everything the officer ask and he was about to let me go and he shine his light in my car and found a small bag of weed. I wasn't aware of the weed and I've been having a menchanic in and out of my car the last couple of days. I explained to him that the weed wasn't mine and this could potentially ruin my life but he didn't care! I just got a good job, I am going back to school for my master this year and I live in public housing which doesn't allow these type of convictions! I don't have anywhere else to go and I can't have this on my record and I can take a drug test if need be I just neeed this cleared. Isn't there anything I can do?
