hi

 

50 grams or less does carry a penaly of up to 6 months. though you may get just a fine, community service and substance abuse counseling as a first offender.

What do you think will happen with the first incedent about my friend having 6grams I was not aware of? I was not caught with any drugs or parifinalia (spelling?) so I'm curiouse as to what will happen to me?

if your friend, is not a first offender, then he could get jail time.
