I've recently been granted a medical marijuana card and certificate due to my insomnia and back pain. To the best of my knowledge, the card and certificate were both issued with accordance to the California State laws. However, after I had paid for the doctor's evaluation and the card/certificate, I've realized that medical marijuana is not legally recognized by the federal government. And since I'm currently a recipients of Federal financial aid, I risk losing my student aid eligibility, if the federal government finds out that I have the medical marijuana card/certificate. I did NOT purchase do not intend to buy any marijuana. However, the Federal Government could convict me of "attempt or intention to purchase marijuana" or something similar to that. Since Federal Financial Aid is a privilege, the department of Education has the right to revoke my financial aid if they want to. To add insult to injury, I did 2 very idiotic things. I sent my friends pictures of my medical marijuana card, and the certificate, so if these pictures end up in the wrong hands, and the federal government finds out, they could easily convict me. I've also paid for the medical marijuana card and certificate with a debit Visa card, so they could possibly subpoena my bank records and see that. What do you recommend that I should do to remedy this problem? The pictures are already out there, I can't change that, and the bank transaction is permanent. I've been so depressed and worried about this, I've not ate or slept in 3 days, and the stress is causing me to drink very heavily, I lost control of the situation, and don't know what to do. If the federal government revokes my financial aid, I could never recover from this mentally and emotionally, it would be the end of the world for me.
