I am a minor and concerned about what will happen to me

Customer Question

Hi, I am a minor and concerned about what will happen to me since I got caught with percocet. The police took my phone for "evidence" but didn't give me any slip for a citation or court date. Will I have to go to court? Will I get charged? This is my first offense.
JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?
Customer: Maryland and last week december 28
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: i'm not sure, the officers took my phone and gave my friend a citation for possession of marijuana but gave me nothing and I wasn't arrested.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No
