Help is simply not going to jump out of your computer screen for you. Get an attorney immediately.
R. Jason de Groot, Esq. We do not have an attorney-client relationship. I am not your lawyer. The statements I make do not constitute legal advice. Any statements made by me are based upon the limited facts you have presented, and under the premise that you will consult with a local attorney. This is not an attempt to solicit business.

You are looking at 30 days up to 1 year in jail depending on the amount of marijuana. You should hire a criminal defense attorney and not try to go it alone.
