hi guys, my friend got caught with 1g (25 euros worth) of cannabis as i was walking with him by gardai. i was searched even though i had nothing and he gave them the cannabis, he is being summoned in a few months. i provided gardai with my details as i had no id on me but wasn't asked to sign a piece of paper or anything (unlike my friend). i was wondering should i be worried even though i wasn't directly told much by the gardai as i wasnt the one with the cannabis? i'm to worried to go into the station to ask in case i have done something wrong. what will happen to my friend? surely he'll get the probation act so he can still work abroad in future?
i was aware at the time that he had cannabis as he had just got it off the dealer and was intending to smoke some of it even though i never possessed the cannabis at any time.
