Got pulled over and got a ticket for driving without a license. Cop smelled weed and gave him my bag. Got arrested for possesion of marijuana and a jail bond of 1000. Court date coming up soon it's my first time getting arrested not sure what to do or expect.
The odor of raw or burnt marijuana, discovered during a valid traffic stop, gives the officer probable cause to search your vehicle. You'll want to have an attorney review the matter to ensure the stop was valid. You may qualify for a deferred judgment, which would expunge this matter from your adult criminal record after you successfully complete probation. Your attorney will discuss this with you.
