The case is still kind of up the air for me. I was recently stopped for going 72 on a 60 zone, but the officer had mention I smelled of alcohol. I informed him that was not alcohol he was smelling and it was marijuana which I do have proper documentation to possess(green card). He then gave me a sobriety test and breathalizer which I blew .02. He impounded my car, sent me to a hospital to have my blood drawn and I was released shortly after. This incident took place 5/24/12 at 1:30am. I had a beer around midnight and last time I smoked was at 9pm (4 hrs prior). Should I be expecting anymore charges from the state patrol or should this be it?
