Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.

Did your wife admit to possessing a small amount of marijuana in the car, or did she admit to smoking a small amount of marijuana before she started driving? Do you know what she's specifically charged with, other than the speeding ticket?
